Contemporary Spanish Gothic

Ann Davies

Published by Edinburgh University Press

European horror and thrillers are today popular phenomena in Britain and the USA, with successes such as Let the Right One In. This book looks at Spain's contribution to European horrors and thrillers, emphasizing Gothic novels and films. It features popular Spanish successes such as The Shadow of the Wind and The Others, well-known film directors such as Pedro Almodóvar (The Skin I Live In), and popular genres such as heritage film and body horror. The book also considers the influence of Spanish Gothic further afield, such as Spanish input into the Twilight film franchise.
