History of the European Horror Film
24 October 2016 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Horror Europa with Mark Gatiss (2012)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Mark Gatiss does for European horror the same as he did for American and British horror in A HISTORY OF HORROR. This documentary clocks in at 88-minutes and gives us a look at Gatiss' favorite European horror films like DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS, NOSFERATU, THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI, THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE, BLOOD AND BLACK LACE, EYES WITHOUT A FACE and the gore films from Italy.

HORROR EUROPA is another good documentary from Gatiss who once again tells the history from his point of view. He's really not interested in doing a straight documentary and instead he tells the history of European horror films from his own view point. This at least gives the film its own style and feel, which is a good thing since there are countless documentaries out there covering the same ground. If you're a fan of the genre then you'll enjoy the stories, the film clips and the interviews. Dario Argento is interviewed and discusses his giallo films as well as how most of his movies come from dreams and nightmares. Jorge Grau of THE LIVING DEAD AT MANCHESTER MORGUE is also interviewed.
