Description

Whether it be internal demons, real-life vampires, anonymous serial killers, crazed spouses, vengeful ghosts or Satan himself, horror films have gripped audiences and filmmakers alike since the very beginnings of cinema. Prepare to be terrified, fascinated and enthralled as you take this whirlwind tour of the 101 horror films you must see before you die.






101 Horror Films You Must See Before You Die gives you a thorough appreciation of the genre, because it approaches the subject chronologically. You' ll move through gothic classics like James Whale' s The Old Dark House (1932) and Terence Fisher' s Dracula (1958), to zombie movies like Dawn of the Dead (1978) and 28 Days Later (2002).


All the sub-genres are covered too, from Eyes Without a Face (mad scientist) and The Howling (werewolf) to Nightmare on Elm Street (slasher) and 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...
