Horror Films of the 1970s & Horror Films of the 1980s





Written by John Kenneth Muir
Published by McFarland Publishing

Both of these are hauntastic reference books surveying the world of horror in the 1970s and the 1980s. Muir discusses the films and includes detailed credits, a brief synopsis for each, critical commentary and reception, as well as the films' place in horror history.

The author's personal opinions do shine through, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. If you can find these in your local library, go check 'em out.

  1. Great find, J. I'll look out for these.
    Almost makes up for Zombie's Halloween 2 debacle! ;o)
