About this title:

Synopsis: Would you dare to come face-to-face with the most terrifying vampires, monsters, zombies, and psychos of all time? They and their movies are all here in this lavishly (and terrifyingly) illustrated volume of the greatest, scariest, and most influential fright films. From such silent masterpieces as The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) to such Golden Era classics as Dracula (1931); from such richly coloured shockers as House of Wax (1953) to such groundbreaking independent thrillers as Night of the Living Dead (1968); and including modern horrors from Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, and the Blair Witch series, Essential Horror Movies chronicles a century's worth of cinematic terror. Behind-the-scenes anecdotes, trivia, and photos complete the story of these essential motion pictures. Anyone who has ever loved to be scared by a truly great masterpiece of terror-or even a film that strives for nothing more than to provide an audience with spooky, corny fun-will find Essential Horror Movies a necessary addition to their personal library.

Review: Essential Horror Movies has 300 color and black and white photos to accompany its excellent rundown of the greatest, scariest and most influential fright films of all time."
