American gothic : six decades of classic horror films

Image of item
Book
A landmark study of the Hollywood horror film from its 19th-century beginnings through to the arrival of Vincent Price as a genre star. This 60-year period encompasses the shadowy nightmares of the silent era, the breakthrough hits in the early days of talkies, the thoughtful chillers of the 1940s and the post-war boom in lurid science-fiction.
