Brand new this week is Jason Zinoman's Shock Value: How a Few Eccentric Outsiders Gave Us Nightmares, Conquered Hollywood, and Invented Modern Horror.
Zinoman's arguments about the importance of the horror films of the late 1960s is dead on. In my new book, like Zinoman, I also spend time focusing on the excellence of Rosemary's Baby, The Exorcist, and Night of the Living Dead and how these movies changed horror forever.
Zinoman was on Fresh Air yesterday to talk about his book.
I have the book on reserve right now and will review it soon. By the way, notice the cover. Hands coming out of the ground must be "in" right now.
