Shocktober Foreign Frights: Germany

Shocktober 2008 logo

For our third tribute to international horror, we set our reviewers on Germany. Arguably the country that lifted cinematic horror from the realm of melodrama, Germany's contributions to the genre extend from Expressionism to the krimi (in many ways a predecessor to Italy's giallo) and beyond. Here we look at two silent German horror, a krimi, a Gothic Poe semi-adaptation, and a remake of one of the greatest vampire films of all time.
