You Wanna See Something Really Scary? A 365 Day Guide to the ‘Must See’ of Horror Films
You Wanna See Something Really Scary? is a 365 day crash course in horror films. One film a day, viewed and reviewed, to turn the average Joe into Mighty Joe Horror. Full of the monsters, madness, blood, guts, screams, bad dreams, slices, dices, thrills and chills that make Horror the greatest genre in film, this book has it all. You’ll scream in terror through the classics of yesteryear, the golden years of horror, the rise of the slasher and the new wave of gore. You’ll gasp in fright at the heroes of horror, the actors, scream queens, special effects wizards and creature creators. And you’ll clutch your heart at the nightmares on the screen, created by some of the greatest writers and directors in film history. So enter, if you dare.
If you wanna see something really scary, this book is for you.
Much like the Horrors! 365 Scary Stories collection (which you can follow my day to day reviews here) this book gives you a sampling of horror movies, one for each day of the year. They dug up some little-known movies to give it a nice selection. Some I’ve seen before but others I had never heard of. It gives you a nice range from slasher flicks to atmospheric ghost stories.
The format is pretty simple – the authors give you the title of the movie, the writer and/or director along with the primary actors. Hmm. Who else does that? There’s also a pretty comprehensive synopsis with a bit of trivia at the end.
One thing worth noting is that they avoid spoilers, so, thanks for that guys!
This may be a short review but it is a pretty decent guide to movies and you might find a few that have slipped under your radar.
There are also holiday themed movies on those particular days.
It could be a bit more comprehensive but for the price it’s worth a look.
