Description

Michael H. Price's celebrated history of the independent horror film -- with science-fiction, offbeat mysteries and Westerns, and strange comedies thrown in for good measure -- continues through the watershed period of 1958-1959 with this seventh volume. Price contributes the customary in-depth appraisals of films including "The Blob," "The Fly," and "The Colossus of New York," but also emphasizes such little-known oddities as "The Monster of Piedras Blancas," "The Space Children," and the weird swamp-water melodramas "Okefenokee" and "Attack of the Giant Leeches." John Wooley contributes a critical history of Bert I. Gordon's essential films (such as "Attack of the Puppet People") from a primary-source vantage, and Jan Alan Henderson offers a personal view of the tragic Yvette Vickers, of "Giant Leeches" and "Attack of the 50-Foot Woman."
