Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Frankenstein and Dracula, to Night of the Living Dead and The Omen, this grisly grimoire conjures up ghouls, demons and all manner of things that go bump in the night. Crammed with endless facts, trivia and stories about every aspect of horror - from 1950s EC Comics and TV series The Twilight Zone; to the music of Black Sabbath and Japanese horror films - this little gem of spookiness is guaranteed to keep readers up all night.

Intriguing insights into the lives of classic horror writers like H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allen Poe, Clive Barker, and Stephen King are complemented by fascinating behind-the-scenes peeks into the productions of Psycho, The Thing, and Halloween.

Vuckovics many authoritative lists include: The Top 13 Vampire Films;  13 Scariest Horror Video Games; and The 25 Best Horror Movie Taglines: “The good news is your date is here! The bad news is... Hes dead!” revealing the humour in the horror.

Vuckovics Horror Miscellany is the ideal present for The Walking Dead and World War Z fan in your life. Just dont read it alone!
