From the Publisher
"Whether readers agree with Paffenroth or not, this book will make a person think.... Paffenroth does the horror world a service by taking the subject of one of its luminaries and treating it as seriously as its fans."
"Despite [Night of the Living Dead's] bleakness, the author finds spiritual hope. By attacking human arrogance, the movie reveals the first part of redemption--when 'we realize our weakness and insufficiency.'"
--Chronicle of Higher Education
"Paffenroth weaves Christian theology, social criticism and allusions to Dante's Inferno throughout his discussion of films that feature cannibalism, mayhem and terror-a feat that probably has to be read to be believed. This is an excellent resource not just for fans of low-budget zombie films, but for anyone who wants to understand the appeal of the genre."
"Well written, well researched, a strong and edgy book."
--Craig Detweiler, Associate Professor and Chair of Mass Communication, Biola University
