Where Does Imagination End and Reality Begin? Re-Examining the Horror Classic (Paperback)
Here be tales of vampires, werewolves, demons, and grave robbers... Of the terrifying cinematic exploits of the Masters of Horror: Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi Lon Chaney Jr. ... and even the bewitching Veronica Lake. Where Does Imagination End and Reality Begin will take you on an entertaining and informative journey through the annals of Horror, examining those classic scare fests from the Golden Age of the Horror Film. Through these pages you will discover - Why did Dracula's Daughter take so long to make and why wasn't Bela Lugosi, Dracula himself, involved in the sequel? Why is 1942's I Married a Witch considered a horror classic? Is there a hidden agenda in The Invisible Ray, the 1936 Karloff/Lugosi sci-fi/horror hybrid? These questions and many more are explored in the re-examinations of these Horror Classics.
