While certainly well-intentioned, the idea behind HIDDEN HORROR: A CELEBRATION OF 101 UNDERRATED AND OVERLOOKED FRIGHT FLICKS is hardly new. For example, I immediately was reminded of a book that’s now 10 years old: FANGORIA’S 101 BEST HORROR MOVIES YOU’VE NEVER SEEN: A CELEBRATION OF THE WORLD’S MOST UNHERALDED FRIGHT FLICKS. Hell, the titles are almost the same!
Yet that’s not a complaint. At least not when so little overlap exists, when so many more movies have yet to get their due, and when the results are as finely polished as editor Aaron Christensen’s trade paperback is. Pay no mind to it being print-on-demand; this book exudes professionalism on all levels without sacrificing its pure indie spirit.
