Read & Download Shock Value Shock Value review ¾ 104 Jason Zinoman ↠ 4 Summary Nd a brand of nihilistic violence that had never been seen before Shock Value tells the improbable stories behind the making of these movies which were often directed by obsessive and insecure young men working on shoestring budgets were funded by sketchy investors and starred porn stars But once The Exorcist became the highest grossing film in America Hollywood took notice The classic horror films of the 1970s have now spawned a billion dollar industry but they have also penetrated deep into the American consciousness uite literally Zinoman reveals these movies have taught us what to be afraid of Drawing on interviews with hundreds of the most important artists in horror Shock Value is an enthralling and personality driven account of an overlooked but hugely influential golden age in American fi. Given how much I love a lot of the horror movies covered in this book it was inevitable that I would like it but this book went beyond my expectations The thoughtfulness with which the author approached the subject hit the right tone for me and I thought he did a good job contrasting the artistic intentions of the film makers against the desires to just make something cool As is often the case I was struck by just how much contingency affected the outcomes of many of the films I love and how in retrospect it seems amazing that some of these films even exist I still think The Exorcist is overrated and not at all scary but it was interesting getting some background on just why it had the impact that it did Of all the films discussed the one mentioned the most that I still haven t seen is The Last House On The Left I should probably remedy that situationAddendumJokes on me turns out I had already seen The Last House On The Left It s a good thing I have external memory storage although if I ever lose my Netflix I m going to be screwed

This was so good The era of New Horror it covers goes from 1968 with the demise of the studio system to 1980 the rise of special effects and endless horror seuels Very interesting and full of new facts The fact that I ve seen the vast majority of the movies covered made it fun to read As far as the couple things I haven t seen I will find a way to watch Dark Star and despite liking Wes Craven I just have no interest in seeing The Last House on the Left I loved that the influence of Mario Bava is recognized
