I have

Psychotronic Video Guide
Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film
Video Hound's Cult Flicks and Trash Pics
Terror On Film
Creature Features
Fangoria's 101 best Horror Films you have not seen
BFI Companion on Horror

I recommend all of these to a varying degree. The Psychotronic books and Terror On Film are my bibles.

Fangoria's 101 best Horror Films you have not seen

I've read numerous other ones, but when I get to the checkout counter I find another DVD in my hand and not the book.

I always get fustrated and happy at the same time when I read horror review/reference books. I realize that there are so many movies I have not seen yet which makes me mad because I wish I had the money to buy them all but at the same time I know that my search for good horror will probably never end since good movies keep poping up all the time.

"Nightmare Movies" by Kim Newman is an excellent book. It covers the "modern" horror film starting with NOTLD and manages to cover a lot of ground.

Anyone read "The Monster Show" by David Skal? It's knock-out-of-the park great!

When it comes to horror review books, the most in depth and informative are by John Kenneth Muir. His nearly 800 pages of reviews in Horror Films of the 1970s (released as 2 paperback volumes) and the even better Horror Films of the 1980s (a single hardcover release) are must owns. Horror Films of the 1990s comes out in August and looking at the jump in writing quality between the previous volumes, should be the best yet.
