Synopsis: Covering every aspect of the genre, this book presents more than 400 of the best, most original, historically significant and even "worst" works of horror from film and literature. The heart-thumping entries are alphabetically listed, each laid out as a capsule review, providing a plot summary along with a critical evaluation of each work's contribution to the horror genre. Both a guidebook and history of the macabre, this is the first book to provide a critical commentary and reference for all horror fans.
From Library Journal:
Both judicious and insightful, Wolf's critique of 400 examples of horror--from novels and short stories to movies to a handful of poems--captures his respect for and pleasure in the genre in which he is so well versed. The book is not the definitive text on horror, but it is a worthwhile asset to the study of horror stories, for it analyzes a cross-section in a way that piques the reader's curiosity about the successes and flops in the field. Wolf often critiques the novel and movie version of the same story, as well as original and updated versions of the same film. For those wanting even more guidance in seeking out tales of horror, an extensive bibliography is provided.
