As a fellow Horror movie junkie I could not wait to get this book. I was not disappointed. The way Seth Grahame-Smith transforms a movie genre into a physical space ( The Terrorverse) is just non stop hilarious. The writing style is epic with great pictures to illustrate what's being said and has been done in movies in the past. Some of it is incredibly gory but hey this is a book about horror movies not kittens ( though there is a section about evil cats ; ) )I also learned about a few horror movies and sub genre's I hadn't heard of before. Hooray for new things right?

Grahame-Smith divides the book into section and makes his way through virtually every genre and sub genre of the horror movie scene. Describing in detail how not to become just another dismembered body in your favorite movie. What is truly unique is how the author seems to pull you into the movies so you really feel like your suddenly a part of the movies we all loved watching growing up, but then you remember the survival statistics for the characters of this movie and suddenly you are desperate to gobble up all the info to stay alive.

Seriously though if you love all things scary and don't just wait for Halloween to roll around once a year to break out the mayhem and frights this book is for you. I laughed my butt off non stop and was sad when I had finished the book. I will definitely be looking into a few other books this author has written.

Caution, thus book may make you laugh out loud... Or wince slightly. Maybe both?

On the whole I found this book to be quite entertaining and rather funny in many parts. Basically it's a run-down of all the horror movie clichés and how to avoid them. Moreover, it gives you practical tips on how to survive if you find yourself embroiled in a typical horror movie...

The book comes with a foreword by Wes Craven, a healthy dose of humor, is well-illustrated and generally pretty slick. Some sections are definitely funnier than others, so it's a little uneven in that regard. But, I figure you need to have a few less-funny moments in order to truly appreciate the gut-busting riffs when you run across them.

If you like horror, and a little comedy, I'd definitely recommend giving this book a try. Good coffee-table or bathroom reading, if nothing else.

Not to be confused with the similarly titled Horror Movie Survival Guide.

The book was a fun, light-hearted approach to an amusing subject. For fans of horror movies, this would be a great read. Even for one such as I, who maybe watches one horror movie a year, the humor with which the author recommends survival behavior in different situations was engaging. I recommend it highly as a delightful diversion.

I first got this book as a birthday gift and got a laugh on every page! It dishes out all the stops for what it means to be in a horror movie, how you know if you’re in one, the do’s and don’ts of survival, there’s even names of lots of great horror movies at the end. There is nothing I didn’t like about this book. Nothing is left out information wise and keeps a sense of humor about it. It's serious information with an LOL-able narration. I loved it so much I ordered it to donate to my college’s library. HIGHLY recommend this for horror/thriller movie lovers everywhere! :D

This book is hilarious. It's also fun, well-illustrated, and useful if you're a writer. The tropes in "How to Survive a Horror Movie" are pure gold. I'm still laughing... and taking notes for a ghost story I'm working on.

I absolutely loved this book. In fact, I've read it 3 times and have lent it to almost all my friends. (They loved it, too.) The book approaches all the mistakes made by characters in, well, horror flicks.

The book takes the sarcastic humorous outlook on horror flicks and tels you exactly what to do in order to survive should you find yourself in that aort of situation. Everything from the seven deadly sins that get you killed to how you can defeat the devil. Its hilarious.

If you want a good laugh, this book is great. Reading it aloud with friends is also fun.

This was a great purchase! Really fun to read! Brought back alot of memories from when I was really in my horror movie phase. I use to love the scream movies and all the somewhat cheesy ones. And this really hit the nail on the head! This basically makes fun at horror movie cliches but takes it to a whole different level. The book is written so you feel as if you are in a horror movie and actually need the pointers....hence the name "how to survive..."
I have a very big sense of humor spanding from very shallow and cheap sense to the deep thinkers. And this book lands right in the middle. Even if you're not a horror movie fanatic, this is still a fun book!
Couldn't stop laughing at the funny-because-its-true observations and tongue-in-cheek advice.This books turns just about any horror movie into an unintentional comedy and makes you look around every now and then to confirm you did not end up in one of those paint-by-numbers slasher flicks.
