From the classics of Georges Mélies and F.W. Murnau to the blood-fests of Tobe Hooper and the great David Cronenberg, 101 HORROR MOVIES YOU MUST SEE BEFORE YOU DIE explores the enduring popularity of the horror film. Fascinating and disturbing, these films expose our most primal fears; our nightmares, our terrors, our vulnerability and revulsion, our terror of the unknown and our fear of sex, death, or loss of identity.

The menace of a monster or spirit in a spooky mansion or along a deserted road thrills and excites even as it horrifies. Big screen menace has come in many forms and has given rise to some of cinema's most iconic characters, from Boris Karloff's monster in FRANKENSTEIN and Bela Lugosi's Dracula, to Leatherface, Carrie, Candyman and Hannibal Lecter. One thing unites them all - the power to entice and repulse simultaneously.

With insight from critics, film historians, and academics, 101 HORROR MOVIES YOU MUST SEE BEFORE YOU DIE applies knowledge and passion to over a century of vampires, zombies, killer clowns, invasions from space, homicidal preachers, visiting Satanists, tongue-slurping cannibals, murderous children, disturbed Vietnam veterans and sentient machines. Will you ever sleep with the light on again?
