Example text

To some extent the internal incoherence of the supernatural sub­ genre reflects a general tendency in sixties horror movies. If there are any clear trends to be distinguished here, they are to be found in the rapid expansion of horror-movie interest in insanity, and in the consolidation of a heightened and highly coloured visual style as a newly effective means of suggesting supernatural forces. Apart from this, the period of American Decline illustrates exactly that: the 56 Genre History distinctively American horror-movie forms (the traditional mad scientist; the space invader) are either changed or rendered insigni­ ficant.

Only The Blood Spattered Bride (1980), a Spanish version of Le Fanu’s ‘Carmilla’, resembles the distinctive vampire movies of the early seventies —which is hardly surprising since the film was actually made in 1972. The very unevenness of this mixture underlines the fact that the vigour and invention of seventies vampire movies was unique to that period. By the early eighties it is almost entirely dissipated. The single exception is Martin (1978), George Romero’s ingenious updating of the vampire story set in contemporary Pittsburgh.

Just as the ‘German Style’ suggested unseen forces lurking in the shadows, so this developing ‘Colour Gothic’ style suggests a world of heightened and constraining experience. None of this is to suggest that all supernatural movies of the period follow the Hammer/Corman/Italian pattern; merely that it is the single most significant feature in what is clearly a time of transition and experiment. There are also traditionally styled films, particularly where monochrome is preferred to colour. The Haunting (1964), for example, originates in the classic fear-by-suggestion tradition (its director, Robert Wise, had worked with Lewton at RKO) and, apart from its ’scope aspect-ratio1 and its lesbian overtones, it could have appeared at any time in the previous two decades.
