Cinema Sentries and Limelight Editions have teamed up to bring one lucky reader the opportunity to win a copy of the fourth edition of Alain Silver and James Ursini's authoritative The Vampire Film: From Nosferatu to True Blood. The book covers nearly a century of pop culture in which these supernatural characters have fascinated the public in film and on television with this new edition exploring "the surge in vampire media since the millennium, including films like Underworld, Van Helsing, I Am Legend, and Let the Right One In and television series like Buffy, Moonlight, True Blood, and The Vampire Diaries" as the press release notes.
Luigi Bastardo previously reviewed the book for Cinema Sentries and highly recommends it for "anyone who’s on the hunt for some information regarding the more classic movies in this particular horror movie subgenre -- from decidedly accurate adaptations of Bram Stoker’s original undying novel like the episode Great Performances from 1977 with Louis Jourdan, to unabashed bastardized rip-offs like the bizarro Filipino shitfest Batman Fights Dracula, or the unforgettable William Beaudine/John Carradine collaboration, Billy the Kid Versus Dracula." In addition to text, The Vampire Film is filled with 800 color photos to feast your eyes on.
