I cannot tell you how often we here at Dread Central are asked to recommend some good horror movies. Most of the time when we answer, we’re met with a kind of stunned silence because 8 times out of 10 the same people asking have never heard of our recommendations.
Now, instead of just naming titles, we can direct the inquisitive chill seeker to a single book… Dr. AC Presents Hidden Horror. Having had a chance to peruse this terror tome, we can assure you that it’s nothing short of an indispensable resource to those new to the genre as well as those who are as jaded as they come. The holidays are coming, kids! We recommend this be added to the shopping list ASAP. If not… SANTA WILL PUNISH, and rightly so!
Having covered the onscreen terror essentials with HORROR 101: The A-List of Horror Films and Monster Movies, Dr. AC is back with a brand new compendium of essays from the brightest and bloodiest aficionados around the globe.
Showcasing an array of overlooked fright flicks, Hidden Horror features insights from 101 informed enthusiasts, each paying tribute to his/her favorite overlooked creature feature, moldy oldie or trashy treat. Contributors include Fangoria’s Tony Timpone and Chris Alexander; Rue Morgue’s Dave Alexander, Monica Kuebler, and John W. Bowen; HorrorHound’s Kristy Jett, Jon Kitley, and Nathan Hanneman; Videohound’s Mike Mayo; Day of the Woman’s BJ Colangelo; Terror from Beyond the Daves’ Dave Fuentes; Horror Movie Freak’s Don Sumner; Flickfeast’s Keven Matthews; The Lair of Filth’s Jude Felton; Twitch’s Dave Canfield; FEARnet’s Lawrence P. Raffel; and many, many more. The only thing missing? ME! What gives, Dr. Ac?
The result is a roster of films as impressive as the bylines, highlighting silent classics The Man Who Laughs and The Hands of Orlac alongside foreign horrors like Tombs of the Blind Dead, Tenebrae, and At Midnight I’ll Take Your Soul. Schlocky shockers The Horror of Party Beach and Humanoids from the Deep share space with mind-benders like Possession and The Tenant. With 101 literary love letters to 101 underrated titles, you’ll soon be combing your queue and video shelves to see every last one!
