One would think that horror writers could have quite profound things to say about horror film - about its intertwined evolution with horror writing, about the different tactics necessary for eliciting fear on screen or in print, about the iconography or horror film and how it alters expectations for horror writing...all sorts of things. But, alas, it seems that horror writers, at least the ones whose contributions editor Chris Golden solicited, had very little of any interest to say about horror films. "I watched horror films as a child" read the sum of many of these essays, or, in one case, "Filmmakers keeps making my books to film and doing it badly". Forgive my high expectations, but I really was looking for something a bit more thoughtful.
