Horrormania '79: Memoirs of a Ten Year Old Horror Fan (Canada, 2018) Review

The prospect of reading and reviewing this book had appeal. I too was a ten year old horror devotee in the year 1979 and looked forward to gaining the perspective of a peer. If there’s one aspect I’ve come to understand and appreciate about the horror culture, it’s how deeply it roots in nostalgia. Horror fans are above all sentimental. Go to any horror convention, and one will observe adults purchasing toys, books, movies, and other memorabilia from their childhood.

“A nostalgic look back to a time where disco, roller skating, Star Wars, KISS and vampire movies ruled the cultural landscape.”
