Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Acclaimed critic and broadcaster Jonathan Rigby brings his trademark wit and insight to bear on 130 of the key moments in screen horror. 

His scope is wide, ranging from silent masterworks like Nosferatu and The Cabinet of Dr Caligari to such 21st century milestones as The Descent and Let the Right One In. In between, he scrutinises the achievements of Universal in the 1930s and Hammer in the 1960s. Lavishly illustrated, the result is a beautifully presented history of international horror cinema that's as entertaining as it is informative. 

About the Author

Jonathan Rigby is an actor, critic and film historian. He is the author of American Gothic and English Gothic, two of the most highly regarded books on horror films published in the last 20 years. Jonathan's other books include Christopher Lee: The Authorised Screen History and Roxy Music: Both Ends Burning.
