Overview

The ultimate guide to vampire films from Buffy the Vampire to Twilight and beyond

Vampire films have always gone to outlying regions: not Transylvania any more (although this remains a 'magical' point of reference), but Mexico, the suburbs of Stockholm, a remote town in Alaska, the forests of the United States, Australia, Korea, Japan, New Zealand. New Vampire Cinema examines forty modern classic vampire films from 1992 to the present day, responding to this remarkably long-lasting example of genre cinema.

Full of remarkable energy, each new vampire film carries traces of vampires films that have preceded it: from the names of various characters to the conflicts, the fatal attractions.

Full illustrated with images from both TV and Film, New Vampire Cinema is the only book that you will need to vampires and their cinematic success.
