Women in Horror Films of Vincent Price
Many of the horror evaluation texts by Jonathan Malcolm depict women as the victims rather than the causes of the horrific events in the films. Women in horror films of Vincent Price present one of the stories where the women face various horrific encounters; however, they cause few of the incidents that they fall victim. Jonathan Malcolm clearly indicates that the women in most of the horror films watch horrific scenes as they appear in their lives, but they have little they can do concerning the events (Mulac 92). At the same time, the horror scenes must restrict to some groups of people, which the author highlights clearly. This paper undertakes a study into the book, detailing important concepts argued by the book while providing important information regarding it. The evaluation focuses on the key points observed by the author in relation to the Women in horror films of Vincent price.
The key strength of the book include the strategic style that the author identifies the scenes that apply to all people and ones that restrict some people from watching. The keenness enables the author to develop the scenes more maturely than the scenes that lack such descriptions. The major weakness of the piece is lack of clear description of the scenes that have clear educative lessons. Most of the scenes function purely for entertainment and present the women as weak people. In my evaluation, the scholar was able to produce a scholarly work because his book confirms to the academic writing guidelines. The book is accessible from various book’s outline include online shops. The best online bookshop that retails the book is www.amazon.com, which works with specific orders at specific details provision. At www.amazon.com, it retails for $33.25 & FREE Shipping offered for the purchased books.
Women in horror films of Vincent price contain commentaries that give both the obvious and the subtle, in the view of the contemporary people about the women in horror films. I recommend the purchase and use of the book, although some audiences must avoid the material. The main characters in the book are likable and admirable to any person interested in reading material that entertains and inspires. I support the argument that women are mainly the victim to the acts in the horror films, but I disagree with the fact that all the women suffer the same. The publisher of the book is trustworthy, having taken part in major publications before. The author had a number of things that could develop the story to the best (Mulac 90). The author could develop a good number of women as catalysts in the problems that the women face and in the horrific events that they come into their lives. This would make the women not only collateral damage in the horrors but also the causes.
I am satisfied with the book for various reasons. Initially, the book effectively covers the themes analysed and intended by the author. The book also develops the characters well, making the major characters the centre of everything. The author makes the readers anxious over the issues that they expect to transpire in the book. All the viewers should use the book although some of the audiences should not watch the horrors. The children and people with vulnerable health issues should avoid watching movies and reading the book as far as they can.
