The Last Voyage of the Demeter, a movie that explores the lesser-known journey of Dracula from Eastern Europe to England, is an engaging tale that expands a brief segment from Bram Stoker’s iconic novel, Dracula, into a full-fledged nautical horror drama. Although it is based on a relatively minor detour in the novel, the film transforms this snippet into an intriguing narrative that combines elements of old-school schooner drama with fan service for hardcore Dracula enthusiasts.

Amazingly, there has never been a book quite like The Art of Horror – a celebration of frightful images, compiled and presented by some of the genre’s most respected names. While acknowledging the beginnings of horror-related art in legends and folk tales, the focus of the book is on how the genre has presented itself to the world since the creations of Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley first became part of the public consciousness in the 19th century. It’s all here: from early engravings – via dust jackets, book illustrations, pulp magazines, movie posters, comic books, and paintings – to today’s artists working entirely in the digital realm.
