A History of Horror by Harnois75 A History of Horror by Harnois75
In 1973 a book was published called 'A Pictorial History of Horror Movies' by Denis Gifford, (do an image search on google for the title and you will find the book cover art) This book became my essential reference guide to horror films.

Thanks. There are a few glaring omissions.. Rosemary's Baby, 28 Days Later, Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream... to name a few, but I was running out of room.

I had that book too! Lost it in a move.
I can name all the classic images. Some of the newer stuff I don't have much interest in, but an amazing work.
