Beschreibung:

Before an ominous soundtrack was proof of an impending monster, filmmakers had to use more subtle techniques to scare audiences. Relying on human uneasiness about the macabre, the earliest horror films still bring silent terror to audiences.This book looks at the horror films made before 1930, many in the silent film genre. It looks at the influence of German Expresssionism and Surrealism on the genre then and now, and influential early filmmakers.Project Webster represents a new publishing paradigm, allowing disparate content sources to be curated into cohesive, relevant, and informative books. To date, this content has been curated from Wikipedia articles and images under Creative Commons licensing, although as Project Webster continues to increase in scope and dimension, more licensed and public domain content is being added. We believe books such as this represent a new and exciting lexicon in the sharing of human knowledge.
