For too long, evil has slumbered. But now, the prince of darkness has arisen...and he thirsts. THE CRYPT OF DRACULA In 1899, master stone craftsman Andreas Wagner takes a job restoring an old castle in the rural mountains of Hungary. He and his mute young wife are hoping to find a new life, after the traumatic death of their infant daughter from a strange wasting disease in Munich. The eccentric Count who owns the castle, a suave but distant man, keeps strange hours. Still, Wagner settles in to the work nicely. But then strange things start to happen in the remote castle on the cliff. The Count's manservant is alternately elusive or confrontational. The locals are secretive and suspicious. Wagner is nearly killed by inexplicable falling masonry. A giant bat attacks his companions. Ghostly apparitions of women with claws and fangs prowl the halls of the gloomy castle late at night. When his friend falls ill from the same disease his daughter died of, Wagner decides it's time to leave and look for a doctor, even if it means abandoning gainful employment. But Count Dracula and his minions have other plans. For Wagner, what began as a simple job, soon becomes a frantic battle for survival and a race against the setting sun to rescue his wife and stop the spread of an ancient evil. "All the hallmarks of a great 1970s classic creature flick are here: spooky castle, the gentleman creature of the night, and harried villagers poised to grab pitchforks and torches. Gilmour brings Dracula back, with a dash of 21st century adventure and a twist you won't see coming." -Jeremy Bishop, #1 bestselling horror author of Torment and The Sentinel

"An ingenious reappraisal of a classic text, Dracula's Crypt presents Stoker's novel as a subtly ironic commentary on England's preoccupation with racial purity. Probing psychobiographical, political, and cultural elements of Stoker's background and milieu, Joseph Valente distinguishes Stoker's viewpoint from that of his virulently racist, hypermasculine vampire hunters, showing how the author's dual Anglo-Celtic heritage and uncertain status as an Irish parvenu among London's theatrical elite led him to espouse a progressive racial ideology at odds with the dominant Anglo-Saxon supremacism. In the light of Stoker's experience, the shabby-genteel Count Dracula can be seen as a doppelganger, an ambiguous figure who is at once the blood-conscious landed aristocrat and the bloodthirsty foreign invader."--BOOK JACKET.

Since the sound film appearances of Boris Karloff as Frankensteins monster, Bla Lugosi as the Count, and Lon Chaney as the Wolf Man, audiences have enjoyed horror and fantasy thrillers. This work documents and illustrates the suspension of disbelief and audience manipulation integral to these three decades of horror, fantasy, and monster movies with interviews, with 122 photographs and a filmography of 251 of the best known (and some not so known) releases, beginning with The Cat Creeps (1930) through The Innocents (1961). Leading producers, directors, actors (e.g., Carl Laemmle, Jr., Kenneth Strickfaden, William Castle, John Carradine, and Forrest J Ackerman) discuss the genre, their colleagues, directing styles, business deals and moviemaking secrets. The extensive filmography covers 251 films and gives credits for the original story, screenwriter, camera, and production crew, and cast members and their roles.
