A cadaverous feast, an exquisite corpse brought to life before your eyes! Writer, journalist and mad scientist, Emma Westwood has edited and curated an essential collection of writing about one of the all-time classics of horror cinema, James Whale’s Bride of Frankenstein.
From Jon Towlson’s analysis of the film’s censorship to Dr Dan Golding’s post-mortem of Franz Waxman’s score.

A perfect surgeon’s bucket of glistening and glorious essays.
