    This was my third time reading this book of movie reviews from cover to cover. I got it as a Christmas present when I was in college in 1975 and though a horror movie fan, probably had seen only a fraction of the nearly 1000 films covered here. Still, I loved reading his concise summaries and reviews, sometimes just a couple of sentences, sometimes half-a-page. This time around, I realize I've seen the bulk of these movies now so I got even more out of the book than ever. It's out of print but i This was my third time reading this book of movie reviews from cover to cover.

    I bought this book in 1974. I've spent many a night over the years pouring over it's pages of seemingly endless information and photographs on horror and science fiction films set in alphabetical order. It is an encyclopedia of information but done with great humor. for any horror and sci fi fan this book is an absolute treasure! I bought this book in 1974.

    This was my bible as a wee lad and I spent many an hour poring over it. A fantastic reference for early horror-sci-fi films, from the silent era up to 1973. I do not always agree with the author's critical opinions, (he hates Godzilla, and didn't care for Soylent Green, and I love both!) but that does not detract from the pleasures of this tome.
