The Vampire Film: From Nosferatu to Twilight - 4th Edition Softcover

In the thirty-five years since The Vampire Film first appeared, new generations of filmmakers have constantly reinvigorated the genre. After this book's original in-depth introduction to the vampire myth and a review of the all the classic adaptations of Stoker's Dracula and Le Fanu's Carmilla including the narrative and visual traditions developed by Hammer in England and the Baroque stylists in Italy in the 1960s, this newest edition will track the form's evolution from such 1970s reinventions as Count Yorga Vampire and Blacula, The Hunger and Vampire's Kiss in the Eighties, Interview with a Vampire, Bram Stoker's Dracula, and the Blade series in the Nineties, through 30 Days of Night, I Am Legend and the Twilight and Underworld series in the first decade of the 21st century. All these films plus celebrated international examples such as Thirst and Let the Right One In, selected ultra-low-budget successes, and such hit television series as Buffy, The Vampire Diaries, and True Blood, are covered in this long-awaited, completely revised, expanded, and redesigned 4th edition that follows the vampire figures, both male and female, through the millennium and beyond. With its comprehensive filmography completely updated to include over 700 titles, The Vampire Film is more than twice as long and now in full color with almost 800 illustrations. More than ever, The Vampire Film is required reading for students, devotees, and new fans of the genre.
