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
Phantom of the Opera(abridged and condensed)
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)
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.
