Reviews - What do customers think about The Horror Genre: From Beelzebub to Blair Witch (Short Cuts)?
Not that it's pretentious or anything... Apr 1, 2004
Just wanted to say that I think this book is great, a pretty in depth look into the genre, specifically when you consider it's only 130 pages. I like that the author address the socio-political influences of the genre, in particular bring up comparisons to Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto and Charles Darwin's theory of natural selection. What I didn't care for is the author's verbose use of language. It reads very slowly, as one practically needs a dictionary to decipher what the author is saying. Just be warned that this is far from light reading on the horror genre.
