Vampires! Ghosts! Awful monsters! Half-naked girls! Gloomy castles! The naive and alluring atmospheres of Italian sexy horrordom in the movies, books and popular publications of the early sixties. From Mario Bava’s wonderful nightmares to Renato Polselli’s delirious vampire stories, from the peculiar “fotoromanzi” to the dark “cineromanzi” of Malia, from the horror novels of Frank Bogart and Frank Graegorius to Magnus & Bunker’s unforgettable “fumetti per adulti”. The movie posters and “fotobuste” (Seddok, L’amante del vampiro, L’ultima preda del vampiro, La cripta e l’incubo, La strage dei vampiri, Metempsyco, I tre volti della paura), the macabre and alluring covers of Malia as well as those of the pocket-sized pulp novels (KKK, I Racconti di Dracula, Terrore, I Romanzi Diabolici), the “fumetti neri” (Kriminal, Satanik, Sadik), the “cineromanzi” and the “fotoromanzi” (Il vampiro etrusco, Sola contro il mostro, Il castello maledetto, Il fantasma vivente, Notte di terrore). A nostalgic illustrated anthology full of precious publishing rarities, in search of the lost atmospheres of that magical era. Featuring the bibliographies of the main publications of the time, as well as a list of all (or almost all) which was published at the time and a filmography of the Italian horror films (1957-1966).
