Terrorific collection of short stories that inspired many a Horror film classic. Feb. 14 2009
By James Simpson - Published on
Verified Purchase
Edited by Peter Haining,who wrote many a book detailing the history of the Horror genre,this is one of his best books and one that will make a great find for the Fright fan.

With an introduction by Vincent Price and an Afterword by Christopher Lee,it's already hard to pass this up.
Inside the book,Haining offers several rare short stories that inspired many classic horror films.
The titles include:
The Devil in a Convent
The Lunatics
Puritan Passions
Phantom of the Opera(abridged and condensed)
The Magician
The Most Dangerous Game
Dracula's Daughter(Dracula's Guest)
All That Money can Buy
The Body Snatcher
The Beast With Five Fingers
Beast Ftom 20,000 Fathoms(The Fog Horn)
The Fly
Black Sunday
Incident at Owl Creek
Die,Monster,Die(The Colour out of Space)
The Skull(THe Skull of the Marquis De Sade)
The Oblong Box

The stories are all intriguing and many are genuine classics,though curiously the author does not offer the original titles,instead the films they inspired.Still,perhaps that's easier for some,even if it does become confusing.

Some titles are delightful rarities like Spurs and Puritan Passions,and it's great to find them in such a compilation.It's also delightful to find so many rare stills to accompany the book as well offering a look at some forgotten films.

Note:Monster of Terror is an alternate title for "Die,Monster Die",for anyone trying to remember that title.

Film & Horror History Feb. 16 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
The copy I have is from 1971. Mr. Haining has done a good job of collecting stories from the 1800's to 1960 that have been made into horror films. This book should really appeal to horror film buffs/students. Quite a few of the stories have appeared in other anthologies--because I read some of them in either author anthologies (Poe, Lovecraft, Bradbury) or horror anthologies. Here is a list of the authors: Francis O Mann, Edgar Allan Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Gaston Leroux, Somerset Maugham, Tod Robbins, Richard Connell, Bram Stoker (not Dracula),Stephen V Benet, Robert L. Stevenson, W.F. Harvey, Ray Bradbury, George Langelaan, Nikolai Gogol, Ambrose Bierce, H.P. Lovecraft and Robert Bloch. I have seen some of the movies made from these stories. For myself, I liked some of the movies better than the actual stories.
