Anne Rice Review by Greg Bueno, submitted on 9-Oct-2001
Finally, an escape from Katherine Ramsland's psychobabble! If you want a somewhat thorough *literary* analysis of Anne Rice's works, search far and wide for Bette Roberts' "Anne Rice." It's a rather academic work, so you might want to start looking in university libraries for it. Roberts takes Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles, as well as The Mummy and The Witching Hour, and compares them to the Gothic tradition of literature.
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
Late in the 17th century, there was a town called Croglin Grange (in Cumberland County, England). It's been said by some that the town was visited by a vampire... and the young lady in the tale barely escaped with her life.A one-story home in Croglin Grange was rented to a two brothers and their sister. One summer night, when the heat from the day still clung to the air, the sister was looking out her window at the stars. It was too hot to sleep. Suddenly, she noticed two lights that flickered in and out of the group of trees that lay beyond her window.
