The Horror People

A non fiction book by

From "Nosferatu" and "The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari" to "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Exorcist", the horror movie has captivated millions. Author John Brosnan shows how this German export first flourished in America under the influence of such immortals as Lon Chaney and the eccentric director of Dracula - Tod Browning - whose classic film "Freaks" destroyed his career. The author restores to life historic figures like Karloff, Lugosi and James Agee's favorite, Val Lewton - producer of the psychological thriller "I Walked With a Zombie". Brosnan explores the careers of contemporary "horror people" such as Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing - two popular stars with starkly contrasting attitudes to horror films - and the incomparable Vincent Price.
