Anybody seen Fuchs?
Unfortunately, I think the presentation of the book itself, if you actually buy it, might put you off a little at first. For the price, you get a pretty slim volume with middling formatting. If other installments in the series are anywhere near as good as this one, I hope the price factor as well as the publication quality don't drag it down too much.
Because in this particular volume, Jez Connolly there's a really interesting job with the Jon Carpenter film in many ways. There's a chapter of some close critical reading, as well as some examination of the special effects, movie history, to provide a full view of this movie. Some of the critical application gets a little weak and how much it has to stretch its logic, but there is a lot to get out of this book that will really give you a full appreciation if you already liked the movie. And if you don't, you'll get some pretty interesting to bits about it anyway.
