Book Description

Jan. 1 2006 Limelight
The Third and most recent edition of The Vampire Film featuring a new chapter, "The Vampire at the Millennium," was released in October 1996 to coincide with the centennial of Stoker's novel Dracula. More vampire films have been produced since the First Edition of The Vampire Film appeared in 1974 than in the entire history of motion pictures prior to that year. The first completely revised and updated edition was published in 1993. The Third Edition, at over 340 pages in length and with well over 200 illustrations, insures that what began as the first book-length study of the subject in 1974 remains the most comprehensive available. The authors, Alain Silver and James Ursini, are continuing their research for future revisions and invite comments from their readers.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars fun and eredite Nov. 23 2003
By A Customer
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!

2.0 out of 5 stars 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.
