It is essential that future filmmakers and critics realize the tremendous debt that the horror film owes to the history of art. Beginning with the relationship between Georges Melies and his Academic contemporaries such as Bouguereau, and the influence of Symbolist, Dada, and Surrealist art on filmmakers such as Vigo and Cocteau this book takes an important look at the correlation between horror films and art.
Whether the reader is a filmmaker or someone who wishes to better appreciate a film genre that is so rarely taken seriously, it is hoped that this collection of lecture by Dr. David Soren will be of some value.
