RECENZIJA:
"- Nakon što sam odgledao odličan dokumentarac istoimenog naslova iz 2006 godine (thanks to HorrorHR-u), zapitao sam se kakva je tek knjiga prema kojoj je ovaj dokumentarac napravljen. I nakon što sam dokumentarac par puta pogledao, odlučio sam se na kupnju i potrošnju u vrijednosti četiri Gundulića.

Pošto sam veliki obožavatelj slasher podžanra, moje je nestrpljenje za čitanjem takvog štiva bilo veliko, no i to se dalo izdržati kad je napokon knjiga tvrdih korica završila u mojim rukama.
Odmah se u prvim rečenicama vidi da je pisac Adam Rockoff (čudnog li prezimena?) jako veliki znalac i fan dotičnog podžanra, jer u svakoj njegovoj rečenici se vidi iskonsko poznavanje povijesti slasher filmova. Detaljna kronologija kojom obuhvaća utjecaj (Grand Guignol), te razdoblje samih početaka podžanra (Pscyho, giallo, TCM...), pa sve do današnjih dana je nevjerojatno prepunjena informacijama, zanimljivostima oko pojedinog filma (iza scena, produkcija, anegdote sa snimanja...), te način na koji su ljudi vezani u slasher projekte djelovali kako bi ostvarili snimanje filma.
Adam se stvarno potrudio i uz sve spomenute slashere koji su nam poznati (Halloween, Friday the 13th, NOES...) uspio je približiti i one slabo poznate - Silent Night, Deadly Night, Black Christmas, He Knows That You're Alone, The Slumber Party Massacre...i td. Iako naslov govori o razdoblju od 1978 - 86 (stvarno istinski vremenski period uspona i pada slasher podžanra tj. od Halloween do April Fool's Day) pisac se hvata i onog razdoblja prije (ovaj dio je bio prevažan da se ne bi spominjao) i poslije navedenih godina iz naslova, ali uz sve svoje gledište uspijeva ukonponirati i mnoge druge filmove (Last House on the Left, Peepin Tom...) koji su svojim pojedinim sekvencama i izričajem nekako pripomogli u oblikovanju onoga što je kasnije ispoljilo Freddya, Jasona i Myersa. Jednostavno knjiga je predobra da bi je ljubitelj horor žanra propustio, pa i unatoč tome što nije još izašla na hrvatskom prijevodu (dobro dođe malo engleski poboljšati i naučiti lingvistiku zar ne?).
Uz sve hvalospjeve jedan veliki plus ide i odlično napravljenom tvrdom ukoričenju knjige (doduše naslovnica je mogla biti i malo bolja), te konceptu fonta.

Sama knjiga je odjeljena na nekoliko djelova (sa zanimljivim i netipičnim uvodom, te mali objašnjenjima na kraju knjige; naravno dodatna bibliografija je isto tako zastupljena):

Acknowledgments vii 1
- slasher film, Friday the 13th, Final Girl
The PreHistory of the Slasher Film 23

Halloween The Night He Came Home 50
