You’ll scream with delight while reading this fun and engaging book that discusses fright flicks all horror fans need to see to ascend to the level of a true Horror Freak — from classics (Dracula and Psycho) to modern movies (Drag Me to Hell) and lesser-known gems (Dog Soldiers).

Romero's original 1968 version of "Night of the Living Dead."

Horror Movie Freak is a universal guide to the most popular and successful horror movies over the last 1939 to 2010. Just about every horror movie genre is covered in this book, from classics, slasher, vampire, werewolf, alien, zombie and any other type that tickles your fancy. As an added bonus, the book comes with a free DVD of Romero’s original Night of the Living Dead.
If you are a horror movie fan, then you will probably already know each movie covered in this book, but there are some lesser known flicks that you will probably go out and rent or buy once you read about them.
The book is broken into twenty different categories with each section listing details and photos of each of the best in the category. Sumner covers the plot summary and then a critical review of the movie. Details about the release date, cast and director is also included to give the reader ample information if they want to find out more about each movie.
This is a must have for any horror movie fan.
