This week, Chris Vander Kaay drops by to talk about his latest reference guide, Horror Films by Subgenre: A Viewer’s Guide. This is the latest book Chris co-authored this volume with wife Kathleen, and Chris talks about their love of cult sci-fi and horror and what drove them to write this reference and last year’s guide, The Anatomy of Fear: Conversations with Cult Horror and Science-Fiction Film Creators
Chris goes deeper into the discussions that led to the distinct 75 categories they’ve broken down, and even some of the overlap and the grey areas where some films might be classified, why and how they chose the subgenres included, and also about what subgenres were left out of their lists and why.
