"Historically comprehensive while refreshingly up-to-date, Harry M. Benshoff's A Companion to the Horror Film provides a much-needed, state-of-the-art overview of an endlessly mutating genre and its ever-evolving criticism. A must-have volume for any popular culture studies bookshelf."
David J. Skal, author of The Monster Show: A Cultural History of Horror
“Benshoff’s Companion, like his previous work, is an all encompassing look at the changing definition of horror and inclusive of cult and camp’s greatest hits. A new must-have for theory-goers!”
Jeffrey Schwarz, Director of I Am Divine, Vito and Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story
