This is a great starting point for anyone looking to find an introduction to the horror genre. Though many of the clips included are to be expected there are several surprises throughout. The effective mind control scene from Svengali with John Barrymore is a standout.The footage of a Jersey shore spookhouse is dated and silly, but has it's charms, too. As a true horror film fan, I often find myself returning with nostalgia to the recorded from TV VHS copy I made a few years ago. It made quite an impression on me when it was first aired. It's well-scripted narration is brilliantly delivered by Jose Ferrer. It's a pity The Horror of It All has not been released on DVD or VHS.
