Got this because of the varied contributors (are Edgar 'Shaun of the Dead' Wright and Scott 'Mysterious Skin' Heim brought together anywhere else?) plus inspired little features. The Twilight Zone chap's list of hackneyed plots is a hoot, particularly 'Hey! I'm Really Dead!' Read full review

A must have for any fan of horror. Mainly focuses on movies, but does cover books, music, televesion, and random horror. Excellent material and should sit on the bookshelves of any horror fan! Read full review
