From publisher blurb:
Horror films are a very broad canvas which writers, actors, and directors can work in. There is one special sort of flick that reoccurs despite the more transitory tastes of this or that fad, the Gothic sub-genre. These period pieces mix in elements of romance and the fantastical to provide the horrific, a bit of gore, and a lot of eye candy. Pitchfork Pictures is the place to stop for Gothic horror in Crawlspace.
In this book is the fictitious nation of Blegovia, a realm of the Austro-Hungarian Empire circa 1820-1910, the perfect place for horror before electric lighting.
