about

This book explores how a group of films produced, distributed and exhibited under the crumbling dictatorship of Francisco Franco reflected the political, social and cultural conditions in Spain between 1968 and 1977. During this decade, Spain experienced a boom in horror movie production that rivaled other sectors of production and yielded staggering success. This work canonizes these films in relation to their historical genesis, aesthetic characteristics and their social reception.

Editorial Reviews

[The book] represents a wonderful way of approaching our cinematography for those who want to enter on Spanish horror cinema of that time, but also for the scholars in the subject, since it offers a point of view free of nostalgia or favoritism, and lacking any kind of prejudice. . . .Proyecto Naschy strongly recommends [this book] to anyone interested in Spanish horror cinema.
