JONATHAN RIGBY'S EURO GOTHIC -- OFFICAL BIOGRAPHER FOR SIR CHRISTOPHER LEE

Jonathan Rigby is the author of the highly acclaimed trilogy English Gothic (2000), American Gothic (2007) and Euro Gothic (2017), and is currently working on American Gothic 2. His other books include Studies in Terror (2011) and biographies of Christopher Lee (2001) and Roxy Music (2005). He's also an actor, best known for playing Kenneth Horne in various stage, TV and radio revivals of the classic comedy series Round the Horne, and Borley Rectory (2017)

The author of the acclaimed film histories English Gothic and American Gothic returns with an in-depth study of the lurid horror fantasies that emerged from the studios of Italy, Spain, France and Germany. From the Expressionist reveries of the Weimar Republic to the transgressive nightmares smuggled past the Franco regime, via surrealist Gallic fever-dreams and psychedelic shockers from Cinecittà, Jonathan Rigby brings his incisive scrutiny to bear on more than 100 key films spanning a period of some 80 years. The result is another absorbing chronicle of one of cinema's most enduring but misunderstood genres.
