Book Description

30 May 1997 Contributions to the Study of Science Fiction & Fantasy (Book 73)
One hundred years after his creation by Bram Stoker, Dracula is still fascinating us. This study traces the changing nature of film representations of Dracula, from the early silent adaptations to recent popular dramas. Holte suggests that vampire films and Dracula adaptations have become an independent genre, the dark romance, with its own set of narrative conventions and audience expectations combining horror and eroticism. This engaging study provides readers with a natural history of the vampire, an examination of the work of Bram Stoker, a history and analysis of many film adaptations of Dracula, a survey of contemporary criticism and theory, and an extensive annotated bibliography of vampire film, fiction, and criticism.

3.0 out of 5 stars Plodding survey, now outdated 5 Feb 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It's pretty much of a trot. One vampire film after another. On the plus side, the author summarizes other critics' ideas so you can avoid getting too entangled with academic stuff. On the minus, the book is outdated (pub'd in the 90's). David Skal's "Hollywood Gothic" is much better and more fun. Another book co-written by Alain Silver is also more useful and has been updated.
