Some of the movies that are now on my 'must-see' list include Bryan Schuessler's essay on Pig Hunt. He compares the movie to Razorback. It's about a group of young people who go hunting for wild pigs. It has won several awards. Another movie that sounds intriguing is David Royce's essay on the movie Willard. It's about a man who gets pushed around his whole life and then gets his revenge with the help of some rats. J. Luis Rivera's White Dog is a movie about how dogs are trained to attack African Americans. This movie sounds both horrifying and thought-provoking about racism in America.
My Review: I recommend this book to all horror movie lovers. It was a quick, fun read that makes me want to go to the video rental store. The writing was great as were the movies that were highlighted. 5/5 Stars.
Along with each film there is a theatrical poster and a writer's dissertation, which really lets you in the mind of the viewer. Some of these essays may convince you to want to check out a few of the sleeper hits for yourself; whether or not all of them are locatable for home viewing is uncertain. In addition to the offbeat, entertaining angle taken with the writers' personal bios, their social media and blog info enables intrigued readers to discover further reading.
All the horror in these movies is not the formulaic type of horror in which the villainous creatures go for the kill; as you delve deeper you'll find that there is the psychological approach taken as well, such as the case with Alfred Hitchcocks's "Birds" which I know I've caught more than once shown on the local network back in the day. Oh yes, "Ants" is also mentioned too, I have a vague recollection of getting a glimpse of that one as well and don't think I reacted favorably to it back then. (But I digress...)
All in all, there is surprisingly good scary animal lore to be found in this treasure trove...I, like the author, am very fond of animals per se and have been able to see and think about different perspectives such as ecological damage, the way animals are hunted for sport or treated otherwise unfairly by humans, among other issues. It is very much recommended!
A long time ago I received an email asking if I wanted to contribute to a book about ANIMAL ATTACK horror films.I accepted for a couple of reasons.
1) Who doesn't like to see animals terrorize human beings?
2) I used to raise rats as pets.
It was the second reason that made me excited. Willard was a life changing movie for me in this genre. A down trodden man with the ability to command an army of rodents to kill those that berated him? SIGN ME UP! I loved that movie and chose it for my submission to this amazing book.
Now that I've read this book I'm a little humbled. Most of the other authors of this tome are actual writers that make their living by giving me the nightmarish landscapes I like. I feel like the minnow among the sharks! That's not a complaint however because this (my essay aside) is one fine book if you're a horror fan.
I thought I knew them all. I thought I had the low-down on the world of animal horror. But I was wrong. These writers introduced me to some films that I had very vague recollections of. Movies that made me update my "to watch" list immediately. Sure you have the heavy hitters like "Cujo" and "Jaws". I mean, what book like this would be complete without them? But the best parts are those that you might have to deep Google search for to discover.
You'll find so many new Animal Attack films to choose from, you'll wonder why you haven't bought this sooner. ALL IN ONE PLACE! Vanessa Morgan put a lot of sweat into this and I, for one, appreciate her dedication to the cause.
As I said, I have an essay in here so perhaps you think I'm prejudiced. Fair enough! But I still challenge you to buy and read this and NOT discover something new about either your favorite movie in this genre or new facts you never knew existed. It's worth your time and money, I promise! Thank you for reading.
