    This isn't another best of book Matt Glasby's horror movie compendium is a lovingly curated examination of some of the scariest movies ever made with expert insight throughout and not a few unexpected filmic gems mined for serious scrutinyGlasby's journalistic experience is in evidence throughout not just in his lean and illuminating writing but also in the wealth of material on offer – The Book of Horror is packed with graphics info boxes and recommendations for further viewing The illustrations are gorgeous too I cannot recommend this enough

    Wow what a brilliant book manages to intelligently unpick how horror films work and still be really scary in itself Glasby captures the atmosphere of each film so well that you'll find yourself unsettled just reading it This is helped by the amazing artwork on every page The classic films are there but it's not just all the same old favourites; the author is clearly a huge horror film afficionado and you will end up with a list of must watch films by the end

    This is an insightful beautifully written book with amazing illustrations and infographics throughout For each of the films that get analysed in depth three are suggested as further viewing so you can discover new films while you learn about the ones you've already seen Really interesting and diverse selection of films a no brainer for horror fans

    As a fan of horror movies since a young age I instinctively approach any articles or books on the genre with suspicion What makes us scared is just so subjective But here the author tackles the uestion ‘WHY are we scared’ and the results are engrossing The book is lovely to go through with atmospheric illustrations and graphs that provide brilliant insight It also encourages you to discover a few gems that you may have missed and then check out the relevant section on that film after viewing This book’s a surefire way to enhance your enjoyment of horror movies and would make a great stocking filler
