In diesem umfangreichenWerk gibt Georg Seeßlen einen umfassenden Überblick über das Genre des Horrorfilms. Dabei beschränkt sich seine Untersuchung keineswegs nur auf den klassischen Horrorfilm, sondern schließt auch dessen Vorläufer, den phantastischen Film als ihm verwandtes Genre mit ein. Gewalt und Angst kommen seit jeher gesellschaftliche und psychologische Funktionen zu, die sich auch die unterhaltenden Medien wie Literatur und Film zu Nutze machen. Woher aber kommt die Lust an dieser Angst? Seeßlen beschäftigt sich eingehend mit dem Phänomen Horror als Unterhaltungssujet und tut dies unter Einbeziehung unterschiedlicher Gesichtspunkte. Ausgehend von den literarischen Wurzeln der Gothic Novels im 19. Jahrhundert erläutert Seeßlen einige Angstmuster und deren mediale Umsetzung in Muster der Angsterzeugung. Desweiteren ergeben sich in diesem Licht wiederkehrende Figuren, Gegenstände und Handlungsorte, die genretypisch sind und fast schon ikonenhafte Züge tragen: Vampire und Wiedergänger, die Burg des Schreckens oder Blut sind nur einige davon. Das Werk bietet zudem einen umfangreichen chronologischen Abriss der Geschichte des Horrorfilms, beginnend beim frühen deutschen phantastischen Stummfilm der 10er und 20er Jahre und dem klassischen Horrorfilm Hollywoods, über die ab Mitte des Jahrhunderts immer drastischer werdenden Monster-, Zombie- und Teenage-Horrorfilmen hin zu den Trash-, Gore- und Splatterfilmen, die sich ab den 70-er Jahren im Wesentlichen nur noch auf das genaue Zeigen blutiger Gewalt und wahrer Schlachtszenen spezialisieren. Darüber hinaus gibt "Der Horrorfilm" einen motivischen Querschnitt durch das Horror-Genre, der unter anderem wiederkehrende Themen wie Teufel und Dämonen, Tiere als Akteure des Terrors oder die Familie als Ort des Schreckens untersucht. Anhand vieler Filmbeispiele verfolgt Seeßlen die Zyklen und Wellen des Horror-Genres bis zur Jahrtausendwende.

Howard Phillips Lovecraft was born late in the 19th century, but it was not until after his death in 1937 that he became a worldwide icon of horror and supernatural fiction. Influenced largely by Lord Dunsany and Edgar Allan Poe, Lovecraft’s stories are known for their unique assimilation of gothic themes into science fiction. Lovecraft’s influence has stretched far beyond literary horror, as a number of his works have been adapted for feature films, television episodes, comic book tales and, in recent years, video games. This scholarly study highlights Lovecraft’s profound impact on 20th century popular culture. Early chapters introduce his complete writings, providing an annotated bibliography of the author’s horror and science fiction tales. The works are discussed in the context of the Cthulhu Mythos, an invented mythology centering on ancient and alien beings interacting with the terrestrial world. Later chapters provide a filmography of motion pictures that credit Lovecraft or are identifiably adapted from his works, as well as a discussion of the works that have been adapted for television, comic books, role-playing video games, and music. The book concludes with a close examination of the Lovecraft legacy, commenting on his specific social and metaphysical ideologies and placing the author in context among such notable literary personalities as Mary Shelley, Nathanial Hawthorne, and Robert Louis Stevenson.

Classic horror films such as Dracula, Frankenstein and The Picture of Dorian Gray are based on famous novels. Less well known--even to avid horror fans--are the many other memorable films based on literary works. Beginning in the silent era and continuing to the present, numerous horror films found their inspiration in novels, novellas, short stories and poems, though many of these written works are long forgotten. This book examines 43 works of literature--from the famous to the obscure--that provided the basis for 62 horror films. Both the written works and the films are analyzed critically, with an emphasis on the symbiosis between the two. Background on the authors and their writings is provided.
