101 Horror Movies free pdf As any horror fan knows, the genre isn't limited to ghouls, blood, and gore, but is as broad as cinema itself.

Learn that people aren't always as they seem, as in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Peeping Tom, Psycho, and The Shining. Confront evil in human form--The Last House on the Left, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Friday the 13th--and in its purer distillation in Rosemary's Baby, The Omen and The Exorcist.101 Horror Films You Must See Before You Die gives you a thorough appreciation of the genre, because it approaches the subject chronologically.

All the sub-genres are covered too, from Eyes Without a Face (mad scientist), The Howling (werewolf), Nightmare on Elm Street (slasher), to The Silence of the Lambs (serial killer). And you'll learn that it's not just American teenagers who are horror-film fodder. There are classic horror films from Japan (Onibaba), Russia(Vij), Italy (Suspiria), France (Les Diaboliques), Belgium (Man Bites Dog), Germany (M), and the Netherlands (The Vanishing). Immerse yourself in the most compelling of movie genres. Prepare to be possessed--and whatever you do, don't answer the phone...
