Shock Value by Jason Zinoman

Read how horror movies evolved from the early monster movies of the 1950s to the supernatural genre of the 1960s to the 1970s like Romero's low budget Night of the Living Dead and Wes Craven's Last House on the Left.
Some horror classics are Rosemary's Baby, Pyscho, Exorcist and Frankenstein.
This book is for anyone who has watched a horror movie and been scared witless. Check out the book and watch a horror movie you haven't seen before. Do early horror movies seem rather tame compared to horror movies currently playing? Which horror movie is your favorite? Least favorite? Which movie made you so scared you still get a shiver thinking about it? 
Shock Value can be found in the new book section under: 791.43617 ZINOM
