Horror Films of the 1970s
Horror Films of the 1970s | John Kenneth Muir
3 posts | 1 read
"Independent filmmaker and horror-film scholar John Kenneth Muir says, 'Art does not exist in a vacuum. Instead, it is inexorably bound to the time period from which it sprang.' In his entertaining and scholarly filmography of over 200 films arranged by year, Muir sees the historical and social happenings of the 1970s as giving rise to the unusually high number of groundbreaking horror films of the decade, as well as the more routine ones. Following a general introduction, Muir provides a synopsis and commentary, a list of cast and crew, significant quotations by critics for each motion picture as well as by participants in the film's making when available, and stills for selected films. Interesting appendixes, notes, a bibliography, and an index are included."--"The Best of the Best Reference Sources," American Libraries, May 2003.

TrishB I very rarely watch modern horror films now for that reason! 2mo
quirkyreader I think this is a remake. The original was set in France and had Pamela Franklin in it. 2mo
Caroline2 @quirkyreader yep, there‘s a 1970s version which I won‘t be checking out!! 2mo
Caroline2 @TrishB agree!! That‘s 1:30hr I‘ll never get back. I told my husband we should have watched a classic but he hates rewatching films, pest. 🙄 2mo
