Vietnam War Movies

Author: Jamie Russell Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/07/2021

From 'The Deer Hunter' to 'Platoon', the Vietnam cycle of films that America has been producing since the 1970s has had an impact on audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. This book offers an overview of the genre, including such films as 'Full Metal Jacket', 'Platoon', 'Rambo: First Blood' and 'Apocalypse Now'. Aiming to show the ways these films operate as fantasy wish-fulfilment, an attempt to come to terms with the war, and as simply an opportunity for action, this book will appeal to all viewers, students and fans of the Vietnam War film.

The zombie is cinema's most enduring horror icon, having terrified audiences for decades.

With an exhaustive filmography covering the history of the zombie genre, Book of the Dead explains our ongoing fascination with the living dead and how this shambolic monster has become a stumbling, moaning metaphor for our age. Fully revised and updated with over 300 new movies Includes an exclusive interview with the 'Don of the Dead' George A. Romero The ultimate resource for zombie fans everywhere
