Dressed in a blue suit, presenter Mark Gatiss tours the capitals of
Europe to give us a potted history of European horror cinema. Beginning
in Belgium, he thence proceeds to Slovakia, Germany, France, Italy and
Spain; along the way he interviews several of the major players in the
genre, including Dario Argento, who speaks to him in a mixture of
English and Italian, depending on his mood.
Thematically speaking, HORROR EUROPA argues with some justification
that horror cinema can be seen as a response to social and economic
upheaval. In the aftermath of World War One, the German horror cinema
was in the ascendant, as directors and producers alike tried to
re-establish the country as an artistic powerhouse after a crippling
conflict, as well as responding to the severe economic crisis of the
time. Films such as THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI (1920) and NOSFERATU
(1922) could be seen as responses to the prevailing socio-cultural
conditions, as well as being influenced by artistic movements such as
Expressionism. Likewise in the post-1945 period French horror cinema
was shaped by the fallout from four years of Nazi occupation as well as
the excesses of the Vichy government; films such as LES DIABOLIQUES
(1955) dramatized fears of moral and social breakdown.
In the Sixties, Italian horror cinema came into its own as a result of
the work of Mario Bava, who developed a style all his own combining
thriller and horror elements, all filmed in a lurid color palette in
which individual sequences assumed more significance than
plot-coherence. Even today these films are quite disturbing to watch
for their sheer unexpectedness of content and form.
In more recent years, Spanish horror cinema has set the tone as well as
the theme for much Euro-horror - partly this was due to the political
situation as the country emerged from years of dictatorship under
General Franco into a more democratic style of government.
As a presenter, Gatiss is both knowledgeable yet willing to learn from
the insights of his interviewees. Sometimes the film includes
irritating reaction shots where he is shown nodding enthusiastically at
his interviewee, even though he is speaking a different language to
them. On the whole, however, he remains a plausible guide,
interspersing his commentary with the occasional moment of wry humor.
HORROR EUROPA is an ideal documentary for anyone seeking an overview of
the genre, as well as reminding specialists of some of their favorite
