It seems peculiar that hospitals—places where people’s lives are saved—can be downright creepy once they’re abandoned. Leftover medical instruments, stained walls, and mysterious sounds all contribute to the unsettling feeling one gets once inside. Luckily, readers won’t have to travel to deserted hospitals around the world. They can tour them in the pages of this hair-raising volume. They’ll visit the Taunton State Hospital in Massachusetts, Old Changi Hospital in Singapore, and others. Plenty of history is mixed in with the odd anecdotes connected with each, and a chilling design and images add to the eerie ambience.

Over tens of thousands of years, the living have found different ways to take care of the dead. Some bodies are buried. Others are burned. Perhaps the creepiest method of all is turning the dead into mummies—preserving them so they almost look as if they were still alive. Are the tales of magic and curses that surround some mummies’ lairs really true? Among the 11 stories in this book, readers will discover mummies in a 7,000‐year‐old burial ground in South America; naturally‐preserved bog bodies in Northern Europe; and the mummy of an American outlaw that was displayed at carnivals and haunted houses in the 1900s. Fascinating details about burial rituals, human sacrifice, and ancient cultures are sure to enthrall readers.

While you may think the old adage about oil and water being unable to mix applies perfectly to the cinema of terror and the craft of great acting, many a grease-painted scare and fluid performance have been combined in the strange alchemy that is the horror film. From the silent mastery of Lon Chaney's The Phantom of the Opera to the cultured cannibalism of Anthony Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs, the genre has seen an impressive number of noteworthy portrayals, far removed from the stereotypical leering monster and terrified maiden. Part One of this work highlights the stars of this screen style - those whose numerous roles and outstanding performances made their names synonymous with horror cinema. Part Two covers actors who, although not normally associated with the genre, still contributed to its history. Part Three covers the great actresses in horror films and highlights their acting achievement. An appendix lists all the Academy Award nominations and winners in the horror genre.
