Horror is one of cinema's most disreputable genres. Frequently dismissed or reviled by critics, the horror film nevertheless provides a way of confronting our fears in a safe environment. Horror Films - Colin Odell. Often subject to more cuts at the hands of the censor than a serial killer's razor, the horror film is also a benchmark, a sign of what's considered acceptable for the public to view and what the state will allow its citizens to see. But for the most part horror films are about entertainment, consistently profitable, eminently enjoyable  .

I've read a lot of these guides now and so probably the rating for this one suffers because by now the thrill is gone. Had I read it before a lot of the others, I might've been a little more generous with the stars.

Here we get some history on the development of horror cinema in various regions and countries around the globe. Plenty of stuff on the usual offenders from America, the UK, the Italian giallos, and the cheap Spanish werewolf flicks. However, the authors also cover what the rest of Europe had, and has, to offer (it's current through about 2006), and they also hit Latin America, Asia, and Australia. So there's a fair amount of material on J-horror and its cousins from Thailand and Hong Kong, plus the recent uptick in gore from France and Spain. In addition to general discussions by country, each chapter ends with capsule reviews of significant horror flick by region from the 1920s to present.

Unlike most guides, this one is very sparsely illustrated, and the handful of photos that are present seem to have been selected by spastic meth-crazed dart-throwing monkeys.

Easily confused Americans, beware! The authors evidently are England-based and so sometimes there are some British spellings and idioms. Do not be alarmed! They are your friends!

Just my opinion. Not very informative at all. There are better books out there.
