A must-have for any fan of dark and spooky cinema.

Gothic media moguls Meg Hafdahl and Kelly Florence, the women behind the Horror Rewind podcast called “the best horror film podcast out there” by Film Daddy, are revisiting horror films from their childhood to discover the science behind the mask. Join Kelly and Meg as they unravel the medical mysteries and scientific marvels that inspired the creation of famous monsters like Nosferatu, Norman Bates, and many more.

In The Science of Monsters, Meg and Kelly discover the real science behind our greatest fears. In interviews with experts at the top of their field, they seek answers to questions like:
  How would a zombie really decompose in Night of the Living Dead? Are there instances of shape shifting in nature like in The Wolfman? What is the science behind the night terrors that inspired the creation of Freddy Krueger? Is there scientific data supporting ghost detection like the tools used in Poltergeist? What is the psychological drive that compels cannibals like Hannibal Lecter? And so much more! An approachable and frightfully fun examination of what goes bump in the night, The Science of Monsters will thrill every horror fan

Mythoughts
This isn't my firs time reading a book like this but out of all the rest this one is  so far the best because its more about how the films came to then just about the movies it talks about , the history behind the movies so to speak which i loved, the movies gong from Halloween to friday the 13th just to name a few of the movies ,so if you know someone who loves horror movies or if its you might want to look this one up with that said I want to thank Edelweiss for letting me read and review it .
