Anthologies when done right are amazing and leave you wanting more. They have you researching the authors hungry for more of their work or you seek out more short story collections just like it, not wanting to devour a full book by just one fantastic writer but to stay in that groove of individual chapters. This is one of those books. Ellen Datlow hasnt let me down yet and when I saw that this was A Blumhouse Books Horror original I was all the way in.

This collection is an ode to horror movies

Ellen Datlow is notorious for putting together great anthologies and a great anthology is exactly what this is.

In my opinion, the best stories in this collection were Exhalation #10 by AC Wise, Scream Queen by Nathan Ballingrud, The One We Tell Bad Children by Laird Barren, Lords of the Matinee by Stephen Graham Jones, Hungry Girls by Cassandra Khaw, and Cut Frame by Gemma Files. All the stories in this anthology kept me entertained, so Id recommend it.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for

But, I was pleased with the majority of the stories. For the most part, they were all enjoyable,

A good, if not groundbreaking, themed anthology of horror stories about movies and moviemaking. Excellent collection of authors, but stories don't have too many highs and lows. Like many themed anthologies, stories hit the same ideas over and over again; the majority of the stories end up hitting the cursed/lost film theme. But some of the stories really do bring out unique ideas or hit on very specific aspects of film history. Stories about a studio fixer in the 1930s, the Canadian horror movie ...more
