Is this by chance the book you are referring to? I've been collecting horror/sci-fi merchandise since the 1970's. Currently I have over 300 books on the subject. This book came out in 1977.

I have quite a few already mentioned, also UNIVERSAL HORRORS by Tom Weaver, which is a must for anyone interested in classic horror.

They Came From Within (for the Prom Night pages)
The Encyclopedia of Horror Movies - edited by Phil Hardy. I first found this book when I was at University in softcover and devoured it. Tracked down the hardcover when I got on the internets and I think it was my very first internet purchase! Hardcover, cheap, but I think the surface mail postage got caught up in the wharfies strike of the mid 90s, and it must have taken about three or four months to get to me. I was sweating buckets the entire time! Since it was printed in 1986 the 80s are a dozen pages or so, but aside from a few glaring errors (Cannibal Girls has two different reviews in two years) and some wordy reviews (not my favourite!) it is an excellent resource (with reviews of films going back to the 1800s!). It was reprinted and updated some years later (1996 I think), but I haven't picked up a copy.
Dark Side magazines, and some other bits and pieces, but not much all totalled.

If anyone has suggestions on a similarly encyclopaedic look at horror, I'd appreciate it.

I just picked up the updated NIGHTMARE MOVIES by Kim Newman and really enjoy it...it covers horror films up to 2010, and I think is one of the first books to cover recent films.

Just reading The Complete History of The Return of the Living Dead and it's a wonderful retrospective of an awesome series, well the first three parts at least.

Interesting post, Moscow. I really enjoyed Muir's book on 80s horror films but I noticed the exact problem you mention in his 90s horror volume, this time focusing on political issues of the Clinton years. It's like you said - in some cases this is warranted but too many times he makes connections that really aren't there. I'll have to reread the 80s volume to see if I notice what you point out.

This is one thing that I really don't own too many of. I do own these though:

Horror Films of the 1970s (2 volume set)

Horror Films of the 1980s (2 volume set)

Horror!: 333 Films to Scare You to Death

Assault of the Killer B's: Interviews with 20 Cult Film Actresses

Clive Barker's A-Z Horror

Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday The 13th

The Hellraiser Films and Their Legacy

I own some other books, but I'm not sure I'd technically call them reference or review books... like Actor specific Biographies.

I always liked the Creature Features guides, and the Video Hound Retriever just for how they indexed the horror in the back by obscure subgenres.

Not your average reference book, but some of you here might love this one. I got it a few months back. It is a reference guide to westerns (film, TV, comics, etc.) with horror, scifi and fantasy elements. Love it!
