Various types of comedy are discussed, outlining the important differences between spoofing, serious-spoofing, parody and satire. Seminal films such as Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, Love at First Bite, Vampire in Brooklyn, Dracula: Dead and Loving It and What We Do In the Shadows are featured.
More importantly, this book demonstrates how comedy is central to both the common perception of the vampire and the genre’s ever-evolving character, making it an essential read for those interested in the laughing undead and creatures that guffaw in the night.
