5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book 6. Juni 2012
Von CG - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Saw this book on sale and bought it on a whim. I ended up being more than pleased with the book when it arrived. It's a gorgeous coffee table style book with lots to read but even more to look at. I even showed it to a few (horror movie loving) friends who later purchased it themselves. Great buy!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good looking book but short on content 11. Mai 2013
Von Thomas Mc - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Owning several titles in the Taschen film book series, (Films of the 60's, Films of the 70's and films of the 80's) I was expecting something great in this volume. But I was disappointed. It's a beautiful book and I love the oversize size, but it's surprisingly thin and comes no where near the in-depth coverage of films one would expect from this publisher. It's far from comprehensive and most of the films it includes are only briefly touched on. I expected it to be broken down into sections by decades or subject and a selection of best films given a thorough review with lots of photos, as in the other books in the series. It is broken down into subjects but does not go further with sections devoted to individual films, but gives only a brief overview of each sub-genre. The photos it includes are beautiful, many of them full page - there just aren't enough of them. So it's a decent book but I expected much more. Hell, just a collection of the articles on films from their other volumes would have been better. For instance in Films of the 60's (which is at least four times as thick as this book) there are great essays on Polanski's films "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Fearless Vampire Killers" plus several other horror films including Hitchcock's "The Birds." In the films of the 70's there is an excellent article on "The Exorcist." All of these films were better covered in those volumes, which is ironic since they should have been highlighted in the "Horror Cinema" volume. Here the films are barely mentioned, if at all. So for a superficial but attractive book it's great on a coffee table, but if you want substance, stick with the other volumes in the Taschen series. If only they would have followed the format they used in their other books this would have been an excellent book, maybe even the ultimate horror film book. But no.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Visual Treat 15. Dezember 2012
Von D. Seebach - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I found this volume in a Taschen store just off Rodeo Dr in Beverly Hills. Since it was so modestly priced I snapped it right up. The photos are great and are expertly reproduced. And, with a collection of other books of this type I was happy and surprised to find images I've never seen before.

There's a whimsical shot that was made during the production of 1959's "House on Haunted Hill" where Vincent Price is dancing with that skeleton that is such an integral part of the plot. It must have been a "horsing around" moment.

However, there are errors that crop up in the text. In describing the memorable makeup Lon Chaney used to create the face of Erik, the phantom of the Paris opera, the author refers to "puddy." Could he have meant putty?

And, when introducing Howard Hawks' "The Thing" he says that the 1950 release capitalized on Russia's launch of Sputnik.

The Russian Sputnik was not launched until 1957.

Nevertheless, the serious horror film fan will want to add this volume to his library. The text errors should have been noticed by a publisher like Taschen.
