From a familiar time, one so ancient it lies deep within all our bones, surfaces a glimpse into the endless age old struggle between life and death, light and darkness, good and evil. This struggle festers throughout our blood, drives our choices, our quests, and our wars. During the Times Before the first battle between these forces of light and darkness clashed resulting in the Shadow Years marking the beginning of The Middle Times. Evil is defeated and The Years of Plenty follow, yet again, giving way to another time of war, The Indigo Years. During this transitional peaceful time, a charming Grenelvin family excursion of exploration leads down a dangerous mystifying path of hidden secrets and treachery inevitably uncovering evil during the Rise of the Goblin King. This Orlok goblin seeks independence from his unending servitude to the Lord of Darkness and Shadow and will destroy the Wolde to achieve nothing less. The new determined spirit of youth engages the old sinister evil in this beginning mystifying tale of intrigue known as the Middle Times. Visit www.middletimetales.com

A new take on our bio-cultural evolution explores how the "inner theatre" of the brain and its "animal-human stages" are reflected in and shaped by the mirror of cinema. • Creates a new model exploring the "inner theater" of human reality perceptions, fantasies, memories, and dreams in relation to art, ritual, everyday actions, and cultural events • Employs neuroscience research, evolutionary theory, and various performance paradigms, drawing on what is known about the animal ancestry and neural circuitry of the human brain to probe the framework of our bio-cultural evolution • Explains how the "emotion pictures" found in prehistoric caves represent turning points in human awareness • Examines a wide range of beast-people films ranging from the 1931 Dracula to the Twilight series (2008–2012) and the 2014 Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, showing how viewers connect to the films and the potential positive and negative impacts they have

The Frighteners follows the quest of Peter Laws, a Baptist minister with a penchant for the macabre, to understand why so many people love things that are spooky, morbid and downright repellent. He meets vampires, hunts werewolves in Hull, talks to a man who has slept on a mortuary slab to help him deal with a diagnosis, and is chased by a chainsaw-wielding maniac through a farmhouse full of hanging bodies. Staring into the darkness of a Transylvanian night, he asks: What is it that makes millions of people seek to be disgusted and freaked out? And, in a world that worships rationality and points an accusing finger at violent video games and gruesome films, can an interest in horror culture actually give us safe ways to confront our mortality? Might it even have power to re-enchant our jaded world? Grab your crucifixes, pack the silver bullets, and join the Sinister Minister on his romp into our morbid curiosities.

Evil, death, demons, reanimation, and resurrection. While such topics are often reserved for the darker mindscapes of the vampire subgenre within popular culture, they are equally integral elements of religious history and belief. Despite the cultural shift of presenting vampires in a secular light, the traditional figure of the vampire within cinema and literature has a rich legacy of serving as a theological marker. Whether as a symbol of the allure of sin, as an apologetic for assorted religious icons, or as a gateway into a discussion of liberationist theology, the vampire has served as a spiritual touchstone from Bram Stoker's Dracula, to Stephen King's Salem's Lot, to the HBO television series True Blood. In Such a Dark Thing, Jess Peacock examines how the figure of the vampire is able to traverse and interconnect theology and academia within the larger popular culture in a compelling and engaging manner. The vampire straddles the ineffable chasm between life and death and speaks to the transcendent in all of us, tapping into our fundamental curiosity of what, if anything, exists beyond the mortal coil, giving us a glimpse into the interminable while maintaining a cultural currency that is never dead and buried.

From slightly demented humans to spinetingling paranormal encounters, each outlandish occurrence is detailed with thorough research and recounted with a storyteller's crafted voice.

Period costume dramas are major box-office commodities, exploiting the lucrative gap between blockbusters and art films with their mixture of rich visuals, popular sensibility, and literary association. "Heritage cinema" is all too often discussed from literary (not cinematic) perspectives, and criticism of the films has long been overshadowed by the question of a film's fidelity (or lack of) to the original text. This volume of essays redresses the balance by examining the relationship between literature and film, representing both the view--and the critics of the view--that heritage cinema's elaborate aesthetics owe more to nostalgia than to historical accuracy. In her introduction to the volume, Ginette Vincendeau makes a case for the genre as an important and critically neglected form of popular cinema. Film / Literature / Heritage includes discussions of a wide selection of adaptations from Shakespeare to William Burroughs, as well as interviews with the screenwriters and adaptors of major films from Elizabeth to LA Confidential, and directors from Martin Scorsese to Peter Greenaway. Contributors are drawn from the best industry, academic, literary, and journalistic commentators on both sides of the Atlantic.
