Imagine you are writing a film paper on George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead and you want to contrast it with similar movies about flesh-eating ghouls. You could diligently pore through a variety of reference sources on Romero and the horror genre, or you could begin your search by turning in this work to the GHOULS entry (as differentiated from the ZOMBIES entry, both cross-referenced and carefully explained): There, a number of films are listed following a mini-essay on the topic overall.The over 450 such entries range from unusual occupations in movies (Bounty Hunters and Librarians, for instance) to subjects (Automobiles, or Trumpet Players), themes (Reincarnation, Lookalikes), settings (Hospitals, Tunnels), happenstances (Dates in Title, Long Running Times), film series (the Range Busters, Carry On...), and characters (Sherlock Holmes, Tarzan)--and more! All in all an invaluable service to fan and scholar alike.
