Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1, University of Frankfurt (Main) (Amerikanistik), course: Introducing Tod Browning, language: English, abstract: Ever since the horror genre has established, it has fascinated viewers around the world. Despite (and to some degree also because of) its controversial status, the horror film has gained much popularity. At the same time it has also been the target of critics. Especially in academic writing the horror film seems to have been neglected. Nonetheless, the horror film has this one peculiarity that other genres don't have. As Rick Worland correctly stated, "A given phase of the horror film often reveals something about the times that produced it, exposing anxieties and outright fears of those days, though doing so in a roundabout or thoroughly unintentional way." (Worland 55-56). Thus there have been many approaches on the horror film and the cultural fear in it. Among other interpretations, the theory of the cultural fear of war has become significant. The connection between war and the cultural fear is definitely not arbitrary. To a great part, this expression is the product of the fearful events that occured in western society. But the content of most horror movies not only indicates the fear of events that took place. these expressions in the horror film have often been understood as metaphors of the fear of a social reconstruction, hence as the fear of things to come- Wars have always existed, and the horror genre has not, at least not as aunique genre. Compared to other genres in literature, the gothic novel - nowadays recognized as the predecessor of the horror genre - came about very late. The emancipation of women, being an important factor in the social construction of modern times, has also established very late. Is this just a coincidence, or does this indicate a stronger connection between cultural fear and the emancipation of women? With respect to that, this term paper will specifically deal with two of Tod Browning's most popular movies: "Freaks" and "Dracula". The first part of this term paper will consider the expression of fear in horror movies as an unconscious reaction to the emancipation of women. Particularly Pierre Bourdieu's ideas in Masculine Domination and Norbert Elias' schemes in The Established and the Outsiders will help to understand the impact of the emancipation of women on the horror genre. In the two chapters that follow, Bourdieu's and Elias' ideas will be applied on "Freaks" and "Dracula"...

Dracula is an 1897 Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker. Famous for introducing the character of the vampire Count Dracula, the novel tells the story of Dracula's attempt to move from Transylvania to England, and the battle between Dracula and a small group of men and women led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing. Dracula has been assigned to many literary genres including vampire literature, horror fiction, the gothic novel and invasion literature. The novel touches on themes such as the role of women in Victorian culture, sexual conventions, immigration, colonialism, and post-colonialism. Although Stoker did not invent the vampire, he defined its modern form, and the novel has spawned numerous theatrical, film and television interpretations. Adaptations The story of Dracula has been the basis for numerous films and plays. Stoker himself wrote the first theatrical adaptation, which was presented at the Lyceum Theatre under the title Dracula, or The Undead shortly before the novel's publication and performed only once. Popular films include Dracula (1931), Dracula (alternative title: The Horror of Dracula) (1958), and Dracula (also known as Bram Stoker's Dracula) (1992). Dracula was also adapted as Nosferatu (1922), a film directed by the German director F. W. Murnau, without permission from Stoker's widow; the filmmakers attempted to avoid copyright problems by altering many of the details, including changing the name of the villain to "Count Orlok". The character of Count Dracula has remained popular over the years, and many films have used the character as a villain, while others have named him in their titles, including Dracula's Daughter, The Brides of Dracula, and Zoltan, Hound of Dracula. As of 2009, an estimated 217 films feature Dracula in a major role, a number second only to Sherlock Holmes (223 films). Most adaptations do not include all the major characters from the novel. The Count is always present, and Jonathan and Mina Harker, Dr. Seward, Dr. Van Helsing, and Renfield usually appear as well. The characters of Mina and Lucy are often combined into a single female role. Jonathan Harker and Renfield are also sometimes reversed or combined. Quincey Morris and Arthur Holmwood are usually omitted entirely (Bram Stoker's Dracula being a notable exception).

Soon afterwards, disturbing incidents unfold in England: a ship runs aground on the shores of Whitby, its crew vanished; beautiful Lucy Westenra slowly succumbs to a mysterious, wasting illness, her blood drained away; and the lunatic Renfield raves about the imminent arrival of his 'master'. In the ensuing battle of wills between the sinister Count and a determined group of adversaries - led by the intrepid vampire hunter Abraham van Helsing - Bram Stoker created a masterpiece of the horror genre, probing into questions of identity, sanity and the dark corners of Victorian sexuality and desire.

Bram Stoker's novel, Dracula, is a classic piece of literature. If you were to ask people what comes to mind when they think about vampires, most would be quick to reference Count Dracula or Stoker, his creator. Count Dracula has become an iconic figure in popular culture and his name is now synonymous with vampire lore, having fully sunk his teeth into the horror genre. While most people have heard of Dracula and watched (or read) one of the many adaptations of his story that came to be over the last century, many have yet to read the original story by Stoker and discover the intricacies that make it one of the most celebrated horror novels of all time.Steeped in mystery and bone-chilling descriptions, characters, and atmosphere, Dracula has provided the blueprints for vampiric content in the decades since it was first published as I Am Dracula in 1897. Nowadays, it isn't always possible to find the time to read a novel such as Dracula with an already busy schedule. For that reason, I have created this essential guide to everything you need to know about Count Dracula, and it only takes about an hour of your time to read, compared to the 27 chapters of the original novel. This is a must-read for the avid horror fan who wants to know more about the roots of their favorite modern vampire films, series, and books.

After Dracula tells of films set in London music halls and Yorkshire coal mines, South Sea Islands and Hungarian modernist houses of horror, with narrators that survey the outskirts of contemporary Paris and travel back in time to ancient Egypt. Alison Peirse argues that Dracula (1931) has been canonised to the detriment of other innovative and original 1930s horror films in Europe and America. By casting out the deified vampire, she reveals a cycle of films made over the 1930s that straddle both the pre- and post-regulatory era of the Hays Production Code an stringent censorship from the British Board of Film Censors. These films are indepenedent and studio productions, literary adaptations, folktales and original screenplays, and include Werewolf of London, The Man Who Changed His Mind, Island of Lost Souls and Vampyr. The book considers the horror genre's international evolution during this period, engaging with a number of European horror films that have hitherto received cursory attention. It focuses on the interplay between Continental, British and transatlantic contexts, and particularly on the intriguing, the obscure and the underrated.

Blood, gore, murder, and sin—Victorian literature’s darkest horrors await you. The penny dreadfuls were cheap nineteenth-century English stories that featured gothic, lurid, disturbing, and tantalizing content. These horror serials cost a penny per issue, hence their name: penny dreadfuls. The penny dreadfuls often paid homage to—and even inspired—many of the more famous narratives of the horror genre. This book pairs three obscure yet influential penny dreadfuls with three of the most notorious literary giants of the nineteenth century: Dracula, Frankenstein, and Dorian Gray, all in one authentic collection of the best Victorian gothic horror ever written. Originally published at a time when dramatic scientific discoveries sparked a cultural fixation on the paranormal, these stories remain timeless in their uncanny ability to prey upon our primal fear of that which is strange, violent, and unknown. This book contains a total of six haunting tales: • Dracula by Bram Stoker • Dracula’s Guest by Bram Stoker (Dracula’s original first chapter, not published until after Stoker’s death) • Frankenstein by Mary Shelley • Wagner the Wehr-Wolf by George W. M. Reynolds • The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde • Varney the Vampire by Thomas Preskett Prest Curl up with The Penny Dreadfuls on a dark, moonless night and rediscover these chilling classics.

In the early nineteen twenties, Florence Balcombe, widow of DRACULAs author, gave authorization to theatrical producer Hamilton Deane to co-opt Bram Stokers novel for a stage play. For years since, the story has been adapted into dramatic form, but never in collaboration with the family Stoker. Until now. DRACULA of Transylvania made its world premiere in 2013. This dramatization by Christofer Cook, with Dacre Stokers advisement, gives the whole story in all its beautifully- terrifying grandeur.

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Hannover (Englisches Seminar), course: Film Analysis, language: English, abstract: Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau’s Nosferatu – Eine Symphonie des Grauens is a horror film classic from 1922. In 1979 Werner Herzog produced a movie called Nosferatu – Phantom der Nacht, in which he used Murnau’s direction ideas. In this paper, I first analyse and compare the influence of colours and lighting on the atmosphere in both movies. Thereafter, I point out the differences in atmosphere between the silent movie with background music and the film with diegetic sounds. Finally, I focus on some differences in cinematography and editing in order to find out how different techniques evoke different feelings in the viewer. I do all this with the intention of proving that, even though advanced filming techniques have improved the understanding of details in movies, the genre of the horror film has not profited from the developments but, in contrast, runs the risk of appearing absurd or parodic.

The original edition of Planks of Reason was the first academic critical anthology on horror. In retrospect, it appeared as a kind of homage to the "golden age" of the American horror film, as this genre played an increasing role in film culture and American life. This revised edition retains the spirit of the original, but also offers new takes on rediscovered classics and recent developments in the genre.
