For Your Library
"Horror Movie Posters, The Illustrated History of Movies Through Posters, Volume 7" by Richard Allen and Bruce Hershenson is a nostalgic trip down dark and spooky lanes. Although this paperback clocks in at only a scant 80 pages, it is ghoulishly replete with designs that cover everything from the silent era up to modern day scare fests. The most hilarious images, of course, are horror posters from the 1950's in which virtually every science fiction theme had something to do with unleashed radiation, attacks by Cyclopsian aliens, or the pre-Jurrassic Park venue of man versus dinosaurs.
