The Gorehound's Guide to Splatter Films of the 1980s
By

Rating
Author Scott Aaron Stine is back again, this time with an exhaustive study of splatter films of the 1980s. (His earlier work on the 1960s and 1970s was "recommended" by Booklist/RBB and called "exhaustive" and "useful" by ARBA.) Following a brief overview of the genre, the main part of the book is a filmography. Each entry includes extensive technical information; cast and production credits; release date; running time; alternate and foreign release titles; comments on the availability of the film on videocassette and DVD; a plot synopsis; commentary from the author; and reviews. Extensive cross-referencing is also included. Heavily illustrated.
