Horror films have been around for more than 100 years, and they continue to make a large impact on popular culture as they reflect their contemporary zeitgeist.

Between the mid-1950s and mid-1980s, drive-in theaters were at their peak of popularity, and each decade brought forward new challenges and themes. This book explores 60 B horror films, divided into 12 fun and uniquely-themed categories.

Chapters discuss how the Atomic Age, the Vietnam War, the women's liberation movement and other current events and social issues affected these films.

Films covered include Willard, The Fly, Santa Sangre and many more.
