1970s Hollywood often brings to mind directors such as Scorsese, Spielberg and Coppola. But the decade was also horror's 'golden age', producing classics like Rosemary's Baby, Carrie, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Halloween by directors who would achieve massive success. Since then, horror has been a prominent part of popular culture.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Shock Value chronicles a period that feels both close and remote...a brave, uncompromising era in the genre filmmaking Vivid, fascinating and entirely relevant -- Guillermo del Toro
Jason Zinomans book Shock Value succeeds where countless trailers failed: it will convince people who dislike horror films that they are missing out on a vital school of art * The Economist *
Where Shock Value excels is in its primary research, the stories of how the seminal shockers of this era came to be, told in large part by the men (and here and there women) who made them * The New York Times *
