About this product
- DescriptionHammer Horror's Dracula was released in 1958 to a mixture of shock, outrage and praise. Yet this version of the Dracula tale, directed by Terence Fisher, was a milestone both for British cinema and for the horror genre. It made an international star of Christopher Lee and confirmed Hammer Films as one of the world's leading purveyors of cinematic terror. Peter Hutchings reveals how Hammer's newly eroticized version of Dracula differs from its previous incarnations. He explores the film's symbolism and narrative structure, as well as its potent sexuality and controversial take on gender. Aimed at students of film and fans of the horror genre, this lively guide reveals the legacy which Hammer's Dracula has left to cinema.
- Author BiographyPeter Hutchings is Senior Lecturer in Film Studies at Northumbria University, Newcastle-upon-Tyne. His books include 'Hammer and Beyond' and, as co-editor, 'The Film Studies Reader'.
