Euro Gothic is the most extensive survey of Continental horror cinema ever published. From the Expressionist reveries of the Weimar Republic to the transgressive nightmares smuggled past the Franco regime, via surrealist Gallic fever-dreams and psychedelic shockers from Cinecitta, Jonathan Rigby applies his incisive scrutiny to the most important European horror films, ranging from the early years of the 20th century to the video revolution of the 1980s.
Jonathan Rigby is an actor, critic and film historian. He is the author of American Gothic and English Gothic, two of the most highly regarded books on horror films published in the last 20 years. Jonathan's other books include Studies in Terror, Christopher Lee: The Authorised Screen History and Roxy Music: Both Ends Burning.
