The Vampire Cinema

The cult of the vampire, with its undertones of sexuality has been an endless resource of inspiration for film-makers from the earliest days of Silent Cinema. Throughout screen history the fair-skinned victims of Count Dracula have swooned with near-delight at his red-eyed approach. Illustrated with almost 200 unusual still from all the major and many of the minor vampire films, many rare posters in colour, lobby cards and campaign sheets, this book is a unique and fascinating account of the most exciting and chilling moments from fantasy cinema.
