is a collection of in-depth essays written about horror movies with animals. I had seen some of the movies chosen by the book's editor such as Jaws, Anaconda, Arachnophobia, Cujo, Lake Placid, and Snakes on a Plane. Most of the movies in the book I had not seen. There was a surge of essays written about sharks that didn't sound too interesting. I wasn't a fan of Jaws. The remainder of the movies sound awesome.
Some of the movies that are now on my 'must-see' list include Bryan Schuessler's essay on Pig Hunt. He compares the movie to Razorback. It's about a group of young people who go hunting for wild pigs. It has won several awards. Another movie that sounds intriguing is David Royce's essay on the movie Willard. It's about a man who gets pushed around his whole life and then gets his revenge with the help of some rats. J. Luis Rivera's White Dog is a movie about how dogs are trained to attack African Americans. This movie sounds both horrifying and thought-provoking about racism in America.
My Review: I recommend this book to all horror movie lovers. It was a quick, fun read that makes me want to go to the video rental store. The writing was great as were the movies that were highlighted. 5/5 Stars.
