Publisher Description

SURREAL! SHOCKING! SALACIOUS!

 

The Eurohorror movement of the mid-to-late 20th century produced a stunning array of nightmarish, surreal, and memorable horror films. Spooky castles, rivers of blood, madmen in torture chambers, lavish color and light, sensual acts of violence, unstoppable armies of saucy vampires, and plaster-faced undead—these are the markers of the dreamlike European contributions to grindhouse horror cinema.

 

In Euroschlock Nightmares, contemporary North American horror writers pay tribute to the films of this fever-dream past. Dario Argento, Mario and Lamberto Bava, Jess Franco, Lucio Fulci, Paul Naschy, Amando de Ossorio, Jean Rollin, Michele Soavi, and more inform and inspire these visionaries to new heights of absurd violence, erotic subtext, spooky atmosphere, and drive-in depravity. Including tales of occult terror, sexy bloodsuckers, undead ghouls, fog-shrouded houses of despair, and more, Euroschlock Nightmares delivers a journey into the beating, bloodied heart of lurid continental horror.
