The Thrill of Repulsion: Excursions Into Horror Culture

by William Burns Author

Part history, and part ode to an under-appreciated genre, The Thrill of Repulsion compiles articles, lists, and interviews documenting the world of horror. Divided up by medium, this book contains four parts: film, television, literature, and music. With detailed reviews of the most canonically significant works of horror in each medium, and in-depth conversations with the artists, actors, authors, and creators responsible for these projects, this is an indispensable collection for fans of the genre. Author William Burns affords horror the critical respect that it ultimately deserves with this deep dive into horror culture.
