Back To Frank Black contributor and bigtime Millennium fan, cult/film award winning writer John Kenneth Muir has released his latest book, a whooping 700 pages of horror analysis, Horror Films of the 1990s. This is a logical and progressive sequel to his previous books Horror Films of the 1970s and Horror Films of the 1980s and covers over 300 films between the years 1990 and 1999.
From John’s own mouth:
Basically, the thesis of all my “Horror Films of…” books is that art universally mirrors life, and that you can better understand the horror films of any particular epoch by learning more about what was occurring in the culture at the time. In other words, I write a great deal about context. Therefore, Horror Films of the 1990s gazes at quite a few historical trends, and how those trends found voice, sometimes surprisingly, in the horror films of the day.
You can read more about the background to this book on John’s blog, Reflections of Film and Television. To purchase a copy through the official site, McFarland Publication follow this link or buy it from Amazon.com here!
