    No se si decir que es la más completa de las enciclopedias de cine de genero . Pero tiene una cantidad importante para los que queremos explorar el cine de horror desde sus comienzos hasta 1992. Una joya.

    One of the Overlook series of Film encyclopedias, this one having to to do with horror films. It is a straight forward, if some times dry, but very thorough guide to films. Broken down by year, it is a exhaustively researched guide, up through 1994 and some 1995. The book itself is huge, and is not for casual reading.

    This is a phenomenal reference book. It's a list of almost every horror film written before the book was published, and I've only ran into a handful that were missing. I use it all the time.
