Horror Film Directors, 1931-1990, Volume 1
An exhaustive study of the major directors of horror films in the past six decades, a genre always popular but often critically snubbed. For each director there is a complete filmography including television work, a career summary, critical assessment, and behind-the-scenes production information. The book covers not only films both old and new, but also directors from Italy, Spain, Australia, Belgium, and elsewhere. Fifty directors are covered in depth, but there is an additional section on the hopeless, the obscure, the promising, and the up-and-coming.
