Additions to the 1,001 Movies from the 101 Genre Movies Books

The same editors who produce the yearly 1,001 Movies You Must See Before You Die Books have also created six companion books to go with them. They concentrate on six genres - Action, Cult, Gangster, Horror, Sci-fi, and War. They are named 101 [one of the six genres] Movies You Must See Before You Die.
