Desire with loathing strangely mix'd in 'Vampire Cinema: The First One Hundred Years'

Featured spreads—showing Max Schreck as Count Orlok in F.W. Murnau's 1922 silent film, Nosferatu; poster variations for Tod Browning's 1931 Dracula starring Bela Lugosi; and posters for Freddie Francis's extra-suggestive 1968 Dracula Has Risen from the Grave—are reproduced from new release Vampire Cinema: The First One Hundred Years, our number one Staff Pick for Halloween 2022. Launching Monday, October 31, at Rizzoli Books NYC, this 272-page goldmine by horror authority Christopher Frayling is a deep dive into the gothic, camp, supernatural, erotic, iconic history of the world's favorite bloodsucking monster. "Dracula is not dead," Frayling writes. "Far from it. … The point is that the old story, and its visual representation, flows through the bloodstream of modern culture, and is instantly recognizable worldwide. A modern myth. No longer a guilty pleasure, either in society or in academe."
