    1. Here s my favorite line from this book This is the exploding head movie to see, if that recommendation carries much weight That comment is about the movie Scanners, and can pretty much double as my review of this book IF you re a fan of the genre, you ll enjoy this 800 page recap of horror movies released in the 1980s The films are discussed in chronological order and are given star ratings, so you can buzz through the book reading only about the movies that interest you I enjoyed the discussion [...]

    2. A massive tome of a book, this one chronicles the majority of horror films which dominated the movie screens of the 1980s It is not, however, without its many typos and mistakes Also, I do question some of the author s opinions and ratings of some of the films herein, but all in all it is a wonderful journey to nostalgia for me and my childhood years basically living at the cinema.

    3. I love the 80 s It was my time to shine and this is why I love this book Having been a fan of the 1980 s and always a fan of horror films, I love how Muir takes the poltical and social climate of this decade and explains why it was so important to the filmakers Filled with trivia, plots, interviews and social commentary this book is a must for movie buffs
