About the Book

This exhaustively researched work, the first in a two-volume set, covers every film released during the “first wave” of Hollywood horror (1931–1939), for a total of 74 chilling entries containing important historical context, frightening facts and terrifying trivia. Each entry consists of a detailed production history (derived from trade-publication reports), contemporary press hype, cast, scenario, critiques and behind-the-scenes production tidbits. Several entries also feature a postscript detailing noteworthy events that followed a picture’s theatrical run, such as sequels or award nominations. Additionally, an appendix presents a full roster of horror films that came out of New York, when Hollywood wasn’t looking! Thoroughly illustrated with high-quality images and meticulously documented, this complete history of the first wave of Hollywood horror is the first of its kind.
