The Book of Lists: Horror
By Amy Wallace, Del Howison, and Scott Bradley
Published by Harper, 2008. 410 pages.
I can’t remember the last time that I picked up a book and was just completely taken over by it. This is one of the most entertaining books I have read in quite some time. This is the kind of book that you can pick up at any time, even if you only have a couple of minutes, open it up to any page, and start reading. And after a couple of minutes, you will have a smile on your face.
The book consists of different “lists” of everything from Douglas Buck’s Ten Favorite Familial Horror Movies, to Robert Kurtzman’s Ten Favorite Creature Features, to T.E.D. Klein’s 25 Most Familiar Horror Plots, and tons more. You will not only find yourself having a chuckle every now and then, but you will also start jotting down some movie titles that you now have to see. A sign of a truly great reference book.
The retail price is only $14.95, but you can get it much cheaper on Amazon. We can’t recommend this book enough. Check it out and see for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
