Great Books on Horror Film
Ten Years of Terror: British Horror Films of the Seventies
"The most gorgeous book on horror film I own. Great analysis and TONS of photos from the greatest decade of British horror."
Book of the Dead: The Complete History of Zombie Cinema
"Finally a good book on zombie films! Lots of pictures, smart text, and an exhaustive filmography. Everything from FAB press is fantastic."
Horror, The Film Reader (In Focus: Routledge Film Readers)
"This is the book I use in my class on horror film. Accessible readings for undergraduates. Classic essays are cut down to managable size."
Men, Women, and Chain Saws: Gender in the Modern Horror Film
"Classic study of gender in slasher films. The chapter on rape/revenge films is great."
Flesh & Blood: Compendium
"Hours and hours and hours of reading pleasure. Articles and reviews from Flesh and Blood magazine. Just look at the cover: you know you want it."
"Video nasties. Yessssss!!!"
"Smart and entertaining study of "cinema vomitif." Includes chapters on Freaks, The Tingler, Bloodfeast, Snuff, Tx Chainsaw, Cannibal Holocaust, Mondo, and Irreversible. What a line-up!!!"
Necronomicon I: The Journal of Horror and Erotic Cinema
"Essays on lesbian vampires, Barbara Steele, Evil Dead, HP Lovecraft films, Dario Argento, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Ms. 45, Deep Throat and more."
Necronomicon II: The Journal of Horror and Erotic Cinema (Bk. 2)
"Essays on SS explotation (Ilsa!), Jesus Franco, Romero, Cemetary Man, De Sade and more."
Necronomicon: Book Three
"I don't have 3 and 4 yet, but I'm sure they're good."
Necronomicon: Book Four
Killing for Culture: Death Film from Mondo to Snuff (Creation Cinema Collection)
"My favorite of the Cinema Creation film studies books. Absolutely brilliant. Covers death in feature films (Snuff, Peeping Tom, Videodrome, etc.), Mondo, and Death Film (Faces of Death, TV footage)"
Inside Teradome: An Illustrated History of Freak Film (Creation Cinema Collection)
"This book would be worth it for the photos alone but the text is also smart."
Fragments of Fear: An Illustrated History of British Horror Films (Creation Cinema Collection)
"There's not a lot of analysis in this one, but it's worth it as a descriptive filmography."
House of Horror: The Complete Hammer Films Story (Creation Cinema Collection)
The Satanic Screen: An Illustrated Guide to the Devil in Cinema
"Satan and his devotees on film."
Bad Blood: An Illustrated Guide to Psycho Cinema
"Case histories of real killers and the films based on their "work." Also a section about fictional screen killers."
The Horror Reader
"In my opinion, the editor truncated these essays too much. Still, it's not a bad place to start (but you'll want to find the good articles in their full versions)."
"Reading this is like watching movies with someone who's really stoned when you're sober. King rambles and cracks himself up, which cracks *me* up. A fun read."
The Monster Show: A Cultural History of Horror; Revised Edition with a New Afterword
"The ubiquitous Skal doesn't do much analysis, but this is a pretty good basic history of mainstream horror. Good for undergrads."
Monsters in the closet: Homosexuality and the Horror Film (Inside Popular Film MUP)
"It's too bad this is out of print because it's the only book on the subject. It's great on films from the 30s through 60s but someone needs to do an update."
Planks of Reason: Essays on the Horror Film
"More good essays."
The Monstrous-Feminine: Film, Feminism, Psychoanalysis (Popular Fictions Series)
"Good feminist reading of the abject in horror film."
The Philosophy of Horror: Or, Paradoxes of the Heart
"I haven't gotten around to reading this yet, but the excerpts I've read are interesting."
Beyond Horror Holocaust: A Deeper Shade of Red
"On my wish list."
