Strange Blood – Book Tour and Giveaway

Strange Blood
71 Essays on Offbeat and Underrated Vampire Movies
Edited by Vanessa Morgan 
Genre: Horror
 
This is an overview of the most offbeat and underrated vampire movies
spanning nine decades and 23 countries.

Strange Blood encompasses well-known hits as well as obscurities that differ
from your standard fang fare by turning genre conventions on their
head. Here, vampires come in the form of cars, pets, aliens,
mechanical objects, gorillas, or floating heads. And when they do
look like a demonic monster or an aristocratic Count or Countess,
they break the mold in terms of imagery, style, or setting. Leading
horror writers, filmmakers, actors, distributors, academics, and
programmers present their favorite vampire films through in-depth
essays, providing background information, analysis, and trivia
regarding the various films. Some of these stories are hilarious,
some are terrifying, some are touching, and some are just plain
weird. Not all of these movies line up with the critical consensus,
yet they have one thing in common: they are unlike anything you’ve
ever seen in the world of vampires. Just when you thought that the
children of the night had become a tired trope, it turns out they
have quite a diverse inventory after all.
