"thoroughly detailed and enjoyably written book is an important addition to the continually expanding list of studies devoted to genre film theory"--Exquisite Terror; "horror is the thinking person's genre, and this book is brain candy for the critical horror fan. Thoroughly researched and referenced...bound to tickle your thinking bone"--Rue Morgue; "excellent addition to the shelves or tablets of any horror scholar"--Dead Reckonings; "spectacular...thoughtful.... This highly entertaining collection of essays is informative and engaging and is easily recommended"; "the best books about film have the unique quality of feeling like they're betraying the medium upon which they're expressing their ideas; that is, they make you want to stop reading and go watch the films they're discussing. Of course, in most instances these books also serve as handy guides to help you discover elements concealed in the films in question, as well as open your eyes to help you rediscover films you thought you already knew. [This] is one of those books...the scholarly authority and thorough research presented...makes for a pleasurable read"; "fascinating and thought-provoking book...intelligent, well written and insightful read...highly recommended"
