9781845436568: 101 Horror Movies You Must See Before You Die

Whether it be internal demons, real-life vampires, anonymous serial killers, crazed spouses, vengeful ghosts or Satan himself, horror films have gripped audiences and filmmakers alike since the very beginnings of cinema. Prepare to be terrified, fascinated and enthralled as you take this whirlwind tour of the 101 horror films you must see before you die.

101 Horror Films You Must See Before You Die gives you a thorough appreciation of the genre, because it approaches the subject chronologically. You'll move through gothic classics like James Whale's The Old Dark House (1932) and Terence Fisher's Dracula (1958), to zombie movies like Dawn of the Dead (1978) and 28 Days Later (2002).

All the sub-genres are covered too, from Eyes Without a Face (mad scientist) and The Howling (werewolf) to Nightmare on Elm Street (slasher) and The Silence of the Lambs (serial killer). And you'll learn that it's not just American teenagers who are horror-film fodder. There are classic horror films from Japan (Onibaba), Russia (Vij), Italy (Suspiria), France (Les Diaboliques), Belgium (Man Bites Dog), Germany (M), and the Netherlands (The Vanishing). Immerse yourself in the most compelling of movie genres. Prepare to be possessed - and whatever you do, don't answer the phone...

(front flap)
From the classics of Georges Méliès and F.W. Murnau to the blood-fests of Tobe Hooper and the great David Cronenberg, 101 Horror Movies You Must See Before You Die explores the enduring popularity of the horror flick. Fascinating and disturbing, these films expose our most primal fears: our nightmares, our terrors, our vulnerability and revulsion, our terror of the unknown, and our fear of sex, death, or loss of identity.

The menace of a monster or spirit in a spooky mansion or along a deserted highway thrills and excites even as it horrifies. Movie menace has come in many forms and has given rise to some of cinema's most iconic characters, from Boris Karloff's Frankenstein and Bela Lugosi's Dracula to Leatherface, Carrie, Candyman, and Hannibal Lector. One thing unites them all--the power to entice and repulse simultaneously.

With insight from critics, film historians, and academics, 101 Horror Movies You Must See Before You Die applies knowledge and passion to over a century of vampires, zombies, killer clowns, invasions from space, homicidal preachers, vacationing Satanists, tongue-slurping cannibals, murderous demon children, disturbed Vietnam vets, and sentient machines. After seeing these films, will you ever sleep with the light off again?
