    MOBI Shock Value Kindle å Ð baienme Ð shock mobile, value pdf, Shock Value EpubThis book is a fantastic examination of the people and movies that created horror as we know it If you want to understand why we had so many slasher films in the 80s or why horror seemed to be completely subverted into weird satire that wasn't particularly scary in the 90s you should read this book

    MOBI Shock Value Kindle å Ð baienme Ð shock mobile, value pdf, Shock Value EpubThis was so good The era of New Horror it covers goes from 1968 with the demise of the studio system to 1980 the rise of special effects and endless horror seuels Very interesting and full of new facts The fact that I've seen the vast majority of the movies covered made it fun to read As far as the couple things I haven't seen I will find a way to watch Dark Star and despite liking Wes Craven I just have no interest in seeing The Last House on the Left I loved that the influence of Mario Bava is recognized

    MOBI Shock Value Kindle å Ð baienme Ð shock mobile, value pdf, Shock Value EpubSHOCK VALUE is one of my favorite books published this yearZinoman details the move away from the goofy safe horror films of the 50s and 60s to the mix of exploitation confrontation and art of the late 60s and 70s Horror movies where the source of the horror is murky or cannot be easily explained or rationalized away Exhaustively researched the main arc of the book’s argumentdefinition of the modern horror film are Rosemary’s Baby The Exorcist The Last House on the Left The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Halloween and Alien Each film and their filmmakers are dissected and discussed within the framework of what was happening in horror and Hollywood at the time While I sometimes disagreed with the artistic merit of some of these films Zinoman does the reader the tremendous service of patiently outlining his hypothesis his cas

    MOBI Shock Value Kindle å Ð baienme Ð shock mobile, value pdf, Shock Value EpubGiven how much I love a lot of the horror movies covered in this book it was inevitable that I would like it but this book went beyond my expectations The thoughtfulness with which the author approached the subject hit the right tone for me and I thought he did a good job contrasting the artistic intentions of the film makers against the desires to just make something cool As is often the case I was struck by just how much contingency affected the outcomes of many of the films I love and how in retrospect it seems amazing that some of these films even exist I still think The Exorcist is overrated and not at all scary but it was interesting getting some background on just why it had the impact that it did Of all the films discussed the one mention

    MOBI Shock Value Kindle å Ð baienme Ð shock mobile, value pdf, Shock Value EpubWhile only slightly elucidating than perusing IMDb's trivia section I did enjoy certain parts of Shock Value The author clearly loves horror and his detailed accounts of behind the scenes negotiations and creative spats are entertaining However Zinoman is wildly irregular in his approach He melds history with theory but gravely does a disservice to the latter For instance he dismisses gendered readings of slasher films as sex obsessed but occasionally points to Freud as an explanation for why certain things make us spook Okay dude If you want to read a truly great book on horror check out Carol J Clover's excellent Men Women and Chainsaws The nicest thing I can say about Shock Value is that it made me want to reread Clover

    MOBI Shock Value Kindle å Ð baienme Ð shock mobile, value pdf, Shock Value EpubI should preface this by saying that one of my favorite books about movies is Peter Biskind's Easy Riders Raging Bulls How the Sex Drugs and Rock 'n Roll Generation Saved Hollywood I read that book when I was a teenager and I clearly remember thinking as I got to the end Biskind didn't really write about Halloween or Alien Two of my favorite movies from the '70's are given passing mention in his book but by and large Biskind stayed away from the horror genre The Exorcist notwithstanding and focused on the maverick directors of the 1970's like Coppola Scorsese and Spielberg With that in mind I thoroughly enjoyed Shock Value an exhaustive and entertaining look at the hor
