Quatrième de couverture : Until I Vampiri (The Vampires) in 1956, Italian filmmakers generally eschewed horror in favor of fantasy films and big screen spectacles. In the 1960s, the subject became as varied as the filmmakers, ranging from the comic strip flavor of the Wild Wild Planet (1966) to the surrealistic mixture of horror and social commentary of Fellini's "Toby Damnit" segment of Spirits of the Dead (1969).
Arranged by English title, each entry included Italian title, studio, running time, year of release, work the film is based on (when appropriate), and cast and credits. These data are followed by a lenghty essay, blending a plot synopsis with critical commentary and behind-the-scenes information.
Chicagoan Lawrence McCallum has written for such publications as Filmfax, Scary Monsters and The Scream Factory.
