From Alien to The Wicker Man! -
There's much more to British horror than the films of the justifiably popular Hammer studios - the Seventies was the heyday of truly independent film production in Britain and this decade marked the peak of creativity for the genre.
Ten Years of Terror is an encyclopaedic record of this era written by a veritable army of the world's best genre writers and featuring a stunning selection of film stills and truly great promotional artwork. Films covered include: Countess Dracula, A Clockwork Orange, The Devils, Straw Dogs, House of Whipcord, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Omen, Alien and hundreds more!
This book is vast in its scope, containing major entries for 141 theatrically-released horror films made by British production companies during the Seventies as well as comprehensive appendices covering areas such as: Borderline Cases (Jubilee, Liztomania, Monty Python and the Holy Grail etc.), Foreign Films Shot or Based in Britain (Lips of Blood, The Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue, A Lizard in a Woman's Skin etc.), Short Films (Blood Lust, Cry Wolf, Take An Easy Ride etc.), and TV (Rentaghost, Roald Dahl's Tales of the Unexpected, Sapphire and Steel etc.)
This is a work of unparalleled research - an immensely valuable and utterly definitive reference work which will become the benchmark for the subject. Each film in the main section of the book is presented with cast and crew listings and in-depth reviews.
Ten Years of Terror is a beautiful large-format book which will thoroughly satisfy all cult and horror film fans; lavishly illustrated with many pages in full colour and stacks of never previously published photographs
