I’ve been watching horror movies since I was six. However, when the Disturbing Movie Iceberg came out a few years ago, I realized that there was a whole subgenre that I never really came to an understanding with. So, along with The God in the Hills author Jon Steffens, we used this opportunity to plumb the depths of Extreme Horror.

Discover the dark and often misunderstood world of extreme horror in A Beginner’s Guide to Extreme Horror. Jon Steffens and Ira Rat, both “noted experts” (we watched some movies) in the genre, team up to explore the more captivating and disturbing works that have earned a reputation as some of the most depraved movies in cinema history.

Don’t be fooled by misconceptions that extreme horror is simply a source of twisted pleasure for those who relish in suffering and cruelty (Well, it’s not just that). In this book, the authors offer a nuanced perspective on the genre, shedding light on its cultural significance and the unexamined facets of human society it portrays.

With a unique blend of critical insight and a genuine (…ahem…) “passion” for the genre, A Beginner’s Guide to Extreme Horror serves as the perfect starting point for anyone interested in delving deeper into the often-misunderstood world of extreme horror.
