HORROR OUT OF CONTROL – New book on 21st century horror


Horror Out of Control is a new book from Reprobate Press and website Warped Perspective, a collaborative look at the 21st Century horror film – the good, the bad and the ugly of modern genre cinema and video.

Publisher’s blurb:

“Written by David Flint and Keri O’Shea, this is a collection of over four hundred incisive and detailed reviews of horror movies made between 2000 and 2020. This is not a partisan ‘best of’ or ‘essential’ guide, but a snapshot of where the genre is in the 21st Century, from major cinema releases and franchises to zero-budget shot-on-video obscurities. With a global expanse and a critical eye, Horror Out of Control is a reflection of the development of the genre in the last two decades.

With some eye-popping visuals and no-hold-barred opinions, Horror Out of Control is the state of the union address that modern horror has been waiting for. Caution: contains extreme images, concepts and opinions. This is not for the easily offended.”
