Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
In a previous study, The Vampire: His Kith and Kin, it was my endeavour to trace back the dark tradition of the vampire to its earliest beginnings, until indeed it becomes lost amid the ages of a dateless antiquity, for this remarkable and worldwide belief was very present with primitive man, and is notably significant in the daily customs and practice both tribal and domestic-more especially in the funeral rites and sepulchral houses-of furthest aboriginal and most savage indigene. Read the first page

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!

"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!

Uninspired look at Vampires on Screen July 2 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
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.
