    Horror at A NEW level!!!

    I'm a big horror fan and I'm a serious filmmaker so this book combines both. It tells you what to stay away from as far as the typical teen slasher and it even provides difference special effect websites you can go to and festivals that is devoted to horror movies. This book is great. Get it and make your own low budget horror film!
