[The Vampire  Film]The Vampire Film: From Nosferatu to Interview With the Vampire (3rd edition)

"In the nearly twenty years since the first edition of this book was published, the vampire film--indeed, vampire mythology--has been constantly reinvigorated, fed by an unending stream in which fascination with the macabre joins creative imagination and technical wizardry. From Andy Warhol's Dracula (1973) to Bram Stoker's Dracula, directed by Francis Ford Coppola (1992), filmmakers have ventured into the shadows of the genre and emerged with work that ranges from the farcical and the seriocomic to the wondrous and truly terrifying. In this revised and greatly expanded edition, Alain Silver and James Ursini bring their original text up to date by focusing on all the films of the past two decades, from the United States and abroad, that found inspiration in the vampire theme. As in the first edition, the authors consider and analyze each picture in detail: its style and approach, plot, acting, cinematography, set design, special effect--and finally its quality of achievenment. Illustrated with almost 300 stills, the book also features an enlarged and updated filmography, which becomes once again the most complete, accurate and fact-filled listing of vampire films ever published." (from the cover of the 1993 edition, ISBN 0879101709)
