"The Vampire Film" is an astounding reference book for those interested in vampire films. The descriptions of the films are great, including an excellent section on the vampires of Hammer films. The filmography at the book's end is great!

HASH(0x9ea5d768) out of 5 stars fun and eredite 24 Nov. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is by far the best vampire film book I have ever read! Combining film analysis with Vampire lore makes for a fun read. Chapters include: "Hammer and the Victorian Pyschology," "Elisabeth Bathory: Still Thirsty After All These Years," and "I Was a Teenage Vampire." Worth Having!

HASH(0x9f46e564) out of 5 stars Uninspired look at Vampires on Screen 2 July 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This would perhaps be a good book for non-fans of the genre or someone more interested in general film studies rather than genre studies. The book offers very little that is new and does so in a pretty uninspiring way. (Though perhaps that's because this is such an early text in the field and everyone has learned what not to do from him.) Ursini didn't appear to be much of a fan of the genre and there was this insidious sense that he had not watched many of the films he discussed. I'm surprised this has made it to a third edition, perhaps it's the result of so few good books about this genre. Skip it and go read something better.
