Product description

Review

'A New Heritage of Horror is the best study of British horror movies and an important contribution to the study of British cinema as a whole.' --Martin Scorsese

David Pirie has at last updated his landmark volume...For horror fans, this will be manna from Heaven, for along with Jonathan Rigby s English Gothic, this remains a cornerstone work, packed with revealing opinion and brow-raising data excavated from the vaults...This highly welcome update will be greeted with open arms by horror devotees who will at last be able to see for themselves what all the fuss has been about Howard Maxford --Film Review

Long been regarded as a trailblazing classic…with A New Heritage of Horror, David Pirie has revised his original work, bringing the story up to date. --Sight & Sound

About the Author

A former Film Editor of 'Time Out', David Pirie turned to screenwriting with a string of successful productions of a gothic or noir flavour from 'Rainy Day Women' via Lars Von Trier's 'Breaking the Waves' to 'The Woman In White' and 'Murder Rooms'. Critic Tise Vahimagi recently noted that while Pirie's film noir-influenced works may be among the most satisfying of that style on TV, it is with his Gothic screenplays that he excels as a genre writer.
