Halloween Post: Monster Movies


Good evening, as this being October and there are many Halloween themed posts, I have decided to go with the flow. With that being said I would like to present Horror Movie books from the 70's
The first book in this Exhibit is "A Pictoral History of Horror Movies" by Denis Gifford
published by Hamlyn in 1973.





(The protective sleeve featured King Kong)

The front endpaper is " House of Wax" (1953) with Vincent Price
The title page features an image from "House of Dark Shadows" (1970)



The second book is The Movie Treasury "Horror Movies" by Alan G. Frank published by Octopus books in the 1974.
The protective sleeve features a scene from "Dr. Terror's House of Horrors" (1964) featuring Peter Cushing on the front and the backside features a scene from "The Satanic Rites of Dracula" (1973) with Christopher Lee.




The front endpaper features another scene from "The Satanic Rites Of Draclula"(1973)








The title page features a scene from "Captain Clegg" aka "Night Creatures"(1962) with Peter Cushing.






And now for a bonus: "The House of Horror : The Story Of Hammer Films" published by The Third Press in 1973


The cover features the "Twins of Evil"(1971) poster
