From bloodsucking schoolgirls to flesh-eating zombies, and from psychopathic killers to beasts from hell, ‘100 European Horror Films’ provides a guide to a hundred horror movies from the 1920s. Alongside films from countries particularly associated with horror production – Germany, Italy, and Spain – and movies by key horror filmmakers such as Mario Bava, Dario Argento, and Lucio Fulci, it also includes films from countries as diverse as Denmark, Belgium, and the Soviet Union, and filmmakers such as Bergman, Polanski and Claire Denis. The book features entries representing key horror subgenres such as the Italian ‘giallo’ thrillers of the late 60s and 70s, psychological thrillers, and zombie, cannibal, and vampire movies. Each entry includes a plot synopsis, major credits, and a commentary on the film’s significance, together with its production and exhibition history. Films covered in the book classics such as Paul Wegener’s The Golem, Robert Wiene’s The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, and Murnau’s Nosferatu; 70s horror such as Daughters of Darkness, The Beast, and Suspiria; and releases such as The Devil’s Backbone, Malefique, and The Vanishing.
