Acclaimed critic and broadcaster Jonathan Rigby brings his trademark wit and insight to bear on 130 of the key moments in screen horror.
His scope is wide, ranging from silent masterworks like Nosferatu and The Cabinet of Dr Caligari to such 21st century milestones as The Descent and Let the Right One In. In between, he scrutinises the achievements of Universal in the 1930s and Hammer in the 1960s. Lavishly illustrated, the result is a beautifully presented history of international horror cinema that’s as entertaining as it is informative. The book includes a foreword by Mark Gatiss.
“In terms of sheer taste and quality, it’s the most important book-length horror film study to emerge in English this past year.” Video Watchdog
