    1st printing. By Jonathan Penner and Steven Jay Schneider. Depicting deep-rooted, even archetypal fears, while at the same time exploiting socially and culturally specific anxieties, cinematic horror is at once timeless and utterly of its time and place. From Psycho, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, ALIEN, to The Exorcist, Dracula, and The Wicker Man, this exciting new visual history - which includes unique images from the David Del Valle archive - examines the genre in thematic, historical, and aesthetic terms. Hardcover, 9-in. x 12-in., 192 pages, Pc/PB&W. Cover price $29.99.

    Revised/Expanded Edition - 1st printing. By Jonathan Penner and Steven Jay Schneider. Get ready to quake in fear with this revised and expanded edition of Taschen history of horror cinema. This chilling volume packs 640 pages full with the finest slashers, ghosts, zombies, cannibals, and more, curating the very creepiest screen creations from the flickering spooks of the 1920s to the special-effect terrors of the 21st century. Across 10 illustrated chapters, the compendium gets under the skin of some of horror's favorite figures and themes, whether the sci-fi dystopia, the haunted house, the female killer, or the werewolf. Each classic device is explored in aesthetic and historical terms, probing horror's manipulation of archetypal human fears as much as socially and culturally specific anxieties. Hardcover, 5 1/2-in. x 8-in., 640 pages, PC/PB&W. Cover price $19.99.
