Book Review: YULETIDE TERROR: CHRISTMAS HORROR ON FILM AND TELEVISION

YULETIDE TERROR: CHRISTMAS HORROR ON FILM AND TELEVISION, edited by Paul Corupe and Kier-la Janisse, is a comprehensive look at the Christmas holiday in horror entertainment. This is probably the most comprehensive book on the topic and probably the best I have ever seen. The book contains interviews with film stars and director, such as Gilmer McCormick, Lewis Jackson, and Jeff Mandel, among others, and presents history, such as the controversy following SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT, along with analytical perspectives all by various writers and journalists familiar with the horror genre, such as Andrea Subissati of Rue Morgue Magazine.
