Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the author of the definitive heavy metal history, Bang Your Head, a behind-the-scenes look a century of horror films

 

Reel Terror is a love letter to the wildly popular yet still misunderstood genre that churns out blockbusters and cult classics year after year. From The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari to Paranormal Activity, Konow explores its all-time highs and lows, why the genre has been overlooked, and how horror films just might help us overcome fear. His on-set stories and insights delve into each movie and its effect on American culture.

For novices to all out film buffs, this is the perfection companion to this Halloweens movie marathons.
