    Book synopsis: Gothic: The Dark Heart of Film explores the shadowy world of Gothic cinema and television – a haunted place stalked by vampires and werewolves, ghosts and tormented monsters, mad scientists and the living dead, brooding Princes of Darkness and imperilled heroines… Through a range of lavishly illustrated new essays, written by some of the foremost authorities in the field, Gothic: The Dark Heart of Film reveals how the archetypes of Gothic horror and romance have endured, reflecting our deepest fears back at us. It charts the story of how the Gothic found its dark heart in Britain, and came to life on film across the world, from its origins in the silent era, through the Universal horrors of the 1930s, the rise of Hammer in the 1950s, and many other twilight stops on its path to the present.
