Instead, it is inexorably bound to the time period from which it sprang. In his entertaining and scholarly filmography of over 200 films arranged by year, Muir sees the historical and social happenings of the 1970s as giving rise to the unusually high number of groundbreaking horror films of the decade, as well as the more routine ones. Following a general introduction, Muir provides a synopsis and commentary, a list of cast and crew, significant quotations by critics for each motion picture as well as by participants in the films making when available, and stills for selected films. Interesting appendixes, notes, a bibliography, and an index are included.--The Best of the Best Reference Sources, American Libraries, May 2003.
