Riassunto: The best scary movies of all time
This exciting new visual history examines the genre in thematic, historical, and aesthetic terms
Horror is both the most perennially popular and geographically diverse of all film genres; arguably, every country that makes movies makes horror movies of one kind or another. Depicting deep-rooted, even archetypal fears, while at the same time exploiting socially and culturally specific anxieties, cinematic horror is at once timeless and utterly of its time and place. This exciting new visual history, which includes unique images from the David Del Valle archive, examines the genre in thematic, historical, and aesthetic terms, breaking it down into the following fundamental categories: Slashers & Serial Killers; Cannibals, Freaks & Hillbillys; Revenge of Nature & Environmental Horror; Sci-fi Horror; The Living Dead; Ghosts & Haunted Houses; Possession, Demons & Evil Tricksters; Voodoo, Cults & Satanists; Vampires & Werewolves; and The Monstrous-Feminine. Among the many films featured are classics such as Psycho, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Alien, The Exorcist, Dracula, and The Wicker Man.

Jonathan Penner has written for movies, television, magazines, and blogs, and has worked extensively as an actor, screenwriter, and producer. His film credits include the cult classic The Last Supper, the Hamlet-inspired Let the Devil Wear Black and the short film for which he was Oscar-nominated, Down on the Waterfront.

Descrizione libro Taschen, 2008. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Very Good. Condizione sovraccoperta: Very Good. The fact that the text of this book is set entirely in white against black backgrounds is obviously designed to make it "dark." Whether this literalness succeeds or prompts a headache is for each reader to judge. Concentrates on post-1980 films, with plenty of cannibals, freaks and hillbillies, and deserves credit for including some titles often overlooked ("Village of the Damned," "The Wicker Man," John Carpenter's marvelous "They Live") . . . though Boris Karloff and Fredric March are by no means absent. 192 pp. Codice libro della libreria 005850

Descrizione libro Taschen, Hong Kong, 2008. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Near Fine. Condizione sovraccoperta: Near Fine. Probably a first edition (no reference to any additional printings), but I'm not sure how Taschen identifies their firsts. 192 pages of text and photographs, b&w & color, covering a wide gamut of territory in the horror genre. Not for the squeamish. Both the book and the dust jacket are in excellent condition. The dust jacket is Not clipped. It will be fitted with a protective cover. The book is very solidly bound. I didn't see any soiling. No one has written their name or anything else on any of the pages. There aren't any markings. I didn't see any creases. Really no condition issue that needs to be called out. Take a look at the photographs. Codice libro della libreria 000865
