Overview

Anne Billson wrote her first professional film review in 1980. In the three decades since then, her writing has been published in dozens of publications, including the Sunday Correspondent, Tatler, New Statesman & Society, the Sunday Telegraph, the Guardian, GQ, the Times, Vogue and Elle. She has also written regularly for websites such as the First Post and the Arts Desk, and has had several books published, including three horror novels.

Nicholas Lezard of the Guardian wrote of Spoilers, 'she's on the ball, and funny with it.' Ian Freer in Empire magazine called her monograph on the Swedish vampire movie Let the Right One In, 'a fun, stimulating exploration of a modern masterpiece.' After reading her vampire novel, Suckers, Salman Rushdie called her, 'a superb satirist'; Jonathan Carroll described it as, 'a rare and impressive piece of literary juggling' while Christopher Fowler called it, 'dark, sharp, chic and very funny.'

Billson combines in-depth knowledge of her field with an eminently readable and unpretentious style, and makes sometimes surprising and controversial observations with wit and elegance. Quite simply, she's a must-read for anyone interested in film.
