First I have to say that the title is funny and I had to read it twice to make sure what I was reading is correct. This book is a guide to all supernatural and evil villains and ways to escape. However, it also has descriptions of hero's and how they help save the world. It has a little of both worlds which is why this book is a great. It's a great reference book for those who are in love with the paranormal and who wants to learn the history behind it. It's insightful, Strange and evil goodness. I recommend this book to all you supernatural lovers!! 

Summary: (from goodreads) Discover the nature of Evil... and how to kick its butt!
These days you can't swing an undead lycanthrope without hitting a Minion of Evil. They're everywhere—TV, film, the basement...right behind you! It's never been more important to know what you can do to keep them at bay. Garlic? silver bullets? holy water? torch-wielding mob?

From today's foremost experts on nightmares-come-to-life, this indispensible guide identifies and describes mankind's enemies—supernatural beasts, ghosts, vampires, serial killers, etc.—and unearths effective time-proven responses to each horrific threat.

Separate fact from fiction, the deadly from the merely creepy.

Learn when to stand your ground and when to run screaming for your life.

Determine which monster-specific heroes to call and their likelihood of success.

Consider your own potential as a Champion for Good, Conqueror of the Damned.

Whether we're talking ancient vampire hunters or modern-day FBI profilers, it's good to know someone's got your back in the eternal struggle between Good and Evil. And this book, with over fifty illustrations, as well as commentary from luminaries like filmmaker John Carpenter, author Peter Straub, and the legendary Stan Lee, provides all the information and reassurance you need to sleep soundly at night. Just not too soundly.

With 8 pages of color art .
