FrightFest and FAB Press once again join forces to publish THE FRIGHTFEST GUIDE TO VAMPIRE MOVIES, which will first be made available in person at the 2022 edition of FrightFest, which takes place from Aug 25 – Aug 29 at Cineworld Leicester Square, London. Following the success of The FrightFest Guide to Exploitation Movies, The FrightFest Guide to Monster Movies, The FrightFest Guide to Ghost Movies, The FrightFest Guide to Werewolf Movies, and The FrightFest Guide to Grindhouse Movies, this is the sixth in an on-going series of wide appeal books for both the curious spectator and the cult connoisseur.

 

For centuries, mankind has been chilled by tales of vampires whose nocturnal quests for blood have been rooted in cultures across the globe. A fixture of literature, art, and folk tales, the vampire was a natural early choice for a movie monster at the dawn of cinema and has remained popular ever since as the screen’s most enduring and sexually charged nightmare figure.

Within these bloodstained pages, you’ll discover that vampires of the silver screen are far more complex and diverse than variations on Dracula and other staples like Carmilla and the Countess Elizabeth Bathory. All the icons are here, from Bela Lugosi and Max Schreck’s pioneering fiends to the heyday of Hammer Films, but that’s just a sanguinary taste of what’s to come as you explore macabre offerings from Hong Kong, India, Italy, France, Germany, and more. Along the way you’ll meet vampire-fighting musclemen, rock ‘n’ roll bloodsuckers, plasma-craving infants, creepy canines, and supernatural strippers.

It’s all served up on a blood-spattered silver platter by author and film historian Nathaniel Thompson, who also delivers a globetrotting introduction to the history and evolution of vampire cinema from the silent era right up to the modern age of undead heartthrobs and vampire assassins.

Sweetening the bloody deal is a foreword by legendary writer and monster expert Kim Newman, who dragged vampire literature into the daylight of the modern age with his Anno Dracula series. Take our hand, if you dare, and accept our invitation to explore the dizzying array of frightening, hilarious, and often beautiful sights and sounds of the undead on film.

Welcome, children of the night, to the FrightFest Guide to Vampire Movies. Crosses, garlic and stakes are optional.

 

Hardcovers remain exclusive to FAB Press, but there is also a paperback version, available from all good bookstores, due out October 2022.
