El problema con los típicos listados que uno encuentra en internet "las 10 películas que de seguro no has visto" o títulos similares, es que la mayoría de las veces son hechos muy al vapor, y resulta que no encuentras nada original en ellos. Lo que si puedo decir de este libro, es que los títulos están bastante bien curados, y aunque he visto muchas de las películas que se incluyen, debo decir que si me ha tomado por sorpresa en varias ocasiones. Ya he buscado algunas de las recomendaciones que se incluyen en el texto y he podido ver algunas gemas bastante oscuras de las que no tenía idea de su existencia. Además, en su mayor parte, se trata de un libro bastante divertido de leer, ya que el estilo desgarbado de su autor consigue ser muy emocionante, y desde luego, tiene el sello de garantía de la Fangoria, que algo se han de saber del género del terror, jeje La única objeción que le podría hacer, es que a veces sueltan demasiado la sopa sobre algunas películas y consiguen soltar spoilers que podrían arruinar la experiencia de quien se acerca a ells por primera vez. De esto me dí cuenta por las reseñas de películas que ya he visto, y solo espero que no me resulte en un desastre con aquellas que no conozco y que estarpe viendo próximamente. Mi edición la encontré a un precio de saldo en un la sección de usados de una librería estadounidense. Es un típico "paperback" con hojas de la consistencia del periódico y una portada de cartón no demasiado sólida, además es en blanco y negro y no esta profusamente ilustrado. Es decir, como libro-objeto para coleccionar, probablemente no es la mejor opción, pero si uno va dispuesto a digerir la información que contiene, sin duda valdrá la pena.

    I've watched 40 of the movies from this book and I have only disagreed with the inclusion of one film so far. Great for discovering spooky little gems like Let's Scare Jessica to Death or Lair of the White Worm. My main complaint is some of the movie summaries give away a little too much but so do most trailers.

    Lives up to its name, examines semi-obscure underrated horror movies such as "The Devil's Backbone," "Private Parts," "Black Christmas," "Cemetery Man," "Ginger Snaps," "Luther the Geek," "Paperhouse," "Santa Sangre," and "Session 9," to name a few. So far, so good.

    The title's promise held true for me - I have not seen most of these movies. The descriptions were intriguing, and I added quite a few to my list (the real list; not to be confused with the fake "sure I'll check that out" list). I especially enjoyed it when the author would allude to unusual endings or elements that made the film stand out from others in the genre.

    Though I had seen many of these films before, this is a great resource if you’re looking for a few films off the beaten path (even though the authors do have their preferences).

    Sadly, the library copy I looked at had many pages cut out. Whether by a roving censor or someone who wanted pictures for the wall, I will never know.

Like every other reviewer I've read on this topic, I've seen the majority of them as well. But it's still refreshing to see some of these movies ending up on SOMEONE'S 101-best list, as they're entirely underrated (Wendigo, for example, or Day of the Dead) or suffered from little or no American distribution (Cronos, A Chinese Ghost Story, etc.). Rather than a definitive compendium, look upon this book as a checklist of all those movies you saw once, liked, and forgot to re-rent, or the ones you forgot about. And if you want to keep true to the title, give your copy to one of your non-horror-loving friends with a list of where to start. (Start someone out with some of the movies in here and they'll never watch another horror flick again...) And then go write up your own list of the 101 best horror films no one has seen. We need more of them. *** ½

    This book was given to me as a gift from my friend Amanda, and I have to admit I was surprised by how well she knew me. Im a huge fan of B flicks, my favorites including Dead Alive, Evil Dead and The Boneyard. This book is fun to flip through, it details a broad range of Fright Flicks most people haven't seen are spending the rest of their lives trying to forget they saw them.

    This book has pointed me to a lot of great horror movies that are off the beaten path. I've seen several of them already ("Asphyx", "Aswang", "Baby Blood" -- all amazing!), and my Netflix cue is loaded with other recommended movies that I bet will be awesome.

    Nothing special. Just lists movies with plot reviews and fun facts. It was helpful in my research for more horror with people of color, but only in-so-much-as I had to google the cast. Still, it was a start.

    Good book because the movie reviews are quick and has pictures, black and white.
