The Fearmakers




The Fearmakers

By John McCarty

From the author of “Splatter Movies” and “Hollywood Gangland.”

Since the advent of moving pictures, filmmakers have sought to scare the viewer. Fear remains one of the deepest, primal emotions, and this book profiles twenty directors who have tapped into it. McCarty coined the phrase “splatter films.” He covers the spectrum of “fearmakers” from George A. Romero to Jacques Torneur and Roman Polanski, from Roland West to John Carpenter and David Cronenburg. There are also biographies of lesser-known directors, such as Benjamin Christensen and Henri-Georges Clouzot.
