Attention fellow horror aficionados! Shock Value  by Jason Zinoman is a treat that you will love! Shock Value  gives you an insider's look into movies from the 1970s that changed the genre of the horror film. You get to see the fall of old horror such as Vincent Price  and Alfred Hitchcock  as well as seeing the rise of new horror with directors like John Carpenter , Wes Craven , Roman Polanski  and George Romero . Some of the movies talked about in Shock Value  include Night of the Living Dead , The Exorcist , The Texas Chainsaw Massacre , Halloween , Rosemary’s Baby  and Psycho . This is a great behind the scenes read and I recommend this to both horror and movie lovers alike.
