Very useful for following the birth of the Zombie genre of horror films. Offers description, behind the scenes and a little about the actors involved. Offers a unique 1-5 scale of palatability, the lowest score being one so poorly done that it's worthy to watch for its cheesy story line.
I've built an impressive list of Zombie flicks to be watched just from this book alone, although most of the titles will have to be found via InterLibrary Loan or online.
