From bloodsucking schoolgirls to flesh-eating zombies, and from psychopathic killers to beasts from hell, "100 European Horror Films" provides a lively and illuminating guide to a hundred key horror movies from the 1920s to the present day. Alongside films from countries particularly associated with horror production - notably Germany, Italy, and Spain - and movies by key horror filmmakers such as Mario Bava, Dario Argento, and Lucio Fulci, "100 European Horror Films" also includes films from countries as diverse as Denmark, Belgium, and the Soviet Union, and filmmakers such as Bergman, Polanski and Claire Denis, more commonly associated with art cinema. 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 include early classics such as Paul Wegener's "The Golem", Robert Wiene's "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari", and Murnau's "Nosferatu"; 70s horror favorites such as "Daughters of Darkness", "The Beast", and "Suspiria"; and, notable recent releases such as "The Devil's Backbone", "Malefique", and "The Vanishing".
