Summary
'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 travel in space and time from contemporary Paris 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. She reveals a cycle of films made over the 1930s that are independent and studio productions, literary adaptations, folktales and original screenplays
