From the birth of horror cinema, The Execution of Mary, Queen of Scots (1895) to Dante's Inferno (1911) and all the way through cinema's history to Raw (2017) and Wolves at the Door (2018), 1001 MOVIES THAT SHOCKED THE WORLD explores over a century of horror, cult and banned films. This extensive guide is replete with over 1000 entries, featuring choice cuts from every sub-genre imaginable in a movie jungle teeming with classics and lesser-known items of interest. Horror connoisseur, Vincent Kapner, serves as the Virgil to your Dante as he guides you through the infernal picture house of the most controversial, shocking and disturbing movies ever made. Overflowing with trivia and background information, as well as synopses, critical opinion and censorship information, 1001 MOVIES THAT SHOCKED THE WORLD is an indispensable addition to any film fan's book shelf. So, if you're an unrepentant cinematic sinner, why not take the plunge and visit the Seven Circles of Movie Hell. Not only will you find yourself in good company, but you'll also be introduced to dozens – if not hundreds – of strange and terrifying cine-lifeforms that had previously escaped your notice.
