This collection of carefully curated lists, articles, and interviews celebrates the beleaguered horror genre across different media while tracing the history of its acceptance into popular culture. Divided into four sections Film; Television; Literature & Comic Books and Music -- this book groups horror movies from the Silent Era to today, as well as classic horror books and cult musical albums, into top-13 lists. Enjoy detailed reviews and analysis in categories such as the 13 Most Deranged Horror Director Debuts, the 13 Horror Movie Adaptations That Are Better Than the Book, and the 13 Most Terrifying Horror Film Soundtracks. These chapters, together with in-depth conversations with musicians, demonstrate how horror has penetrated our culture in more ways than we know. Fans of experimental cinema, heavy metal, industrial music, comics, and the occult will be delighted to see their favourite, yet far too often critically marginalised, works of art reviewed with a fresh, exhilarating voice.
