Description by

Michael H. Price's celebrated history of the independent horror film -- with science-fiction, offbeat mysteries and Westerns, and strange comedies thrown in for good measure -- continues through the watershed period of 1958-1959 with this seventh volume. Price contributes the customary in-depth appraisals of films including The Blob, The Fly, and The Colossus of New York, but also emphasizes such little-known oddities as The Monster of Piedras Blancas, The Space Children, and the weird swamp-water melodramas Okefenokee and Attack of the Giant Leeches. John Wooley contributes a critical history of Bert I. Gordon's essential films (such as Attack of the Puppet People) from a primary-source vantage, and Jan Alan Henderson offers a personal view of the tragic Yvette Vickers, of Giant Leeches and Attack of the 50-Foot Woman. The longest-running genre-study series in commercial publishing (since 1979) strikes again... and again... and again... and... yes, well, you get the picture...
