Featuring text discussing the curious, hilarious, grisly and gripping films that have been awarded the 'cult' badge over the years, alongside iconic and moody film stills and posters, Cult Horror will have you reminiscing over forgotten films and favourite movies, on a journey from demons, devilry and supernatural chills, through psychos and slashers, to body horror, monsters, zombies and vampires. Whether it's the famous faces, shocks and scares of horror classics with cult followings such as The Exorcist or The Shining, to so-bad-it's-good gems like Plan 9 from Outer Space or 70s obscurity I Drink Your Blood, every page reveals the morbid fascination we have with horror.
