English Gothic was the first book to trace the rise and fall of horror cinema from its beginnings in the 1890s right through to the end of the 20th century, encompassing the lost films of the silent era, the Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi chillers of the 1930s, the lurid classics from Hammer's house of horror and the explicit shockers of the 1970s. Now it comes complete with an assessment of the remarkable renaissance enjoyed by British horror in the 21st century. This deluxe new hardback edition features a comprehensive section on television horror, a foreword by genre star Barbara Shelley and a wealth of new illustrations.
