Written by James Marriott.

A note from Kim about this book:

“Despite what it says on the cover/spine/online, I did not co-write or edit this volume. I contributed the prefatory essays for the decade sections, but the editor of the book was the late James Marriott – who deserves all the credit. I didn’t know the publisher were going to mis-credit me on the cover until I saw a copy. As a work-for-hire gig, it has been added to and repackaged several times – always with a new title and additional material, but still with me given too much credit.”

Order it from Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com.

Packed with photographs of the most terrifying scenes in cinema history, this unique, definitive, comprehensive guide traces the story of horror over the past century, decade-by-decade, and provides a witty and informative critique of over 250 films, plus any TV series and literature that informed them. And with feature spreads on related themes appearing throughout – from vampires, ghosts and comedy horror, to the occult, giallo, cannibalism and serial killers – this book offers a superb introduction for beginners as well as something new for the die-hard horror fan.
