Review by:
Lee Minoff

Focus on the Horror Film is an intelligent and wide-ranging collection of essays on a genre whose aim is to scare us and make money at it.

Editors Roy Huss and T. J. Ross, Professors of English with a psychoanalytic perspective, have done an excellent job choosing twenty-five essays and other pieces, most of them by film critics and academicians. The contributors include Stephen Farber on “The New American Gothic,” Carl Belz on “The Terror of the Surreal,” film director Curtis Harrington on “Ghoulies and Ghosties,” and Ray Bradbury writing “A New Ending to Rosemary's Baby.” Also included are excerpts from Bram Stoker's classic Victorian novel Dracula and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.
