Description - British Horror Cinema by Steve Chibnall

The horror film is now one of the most popular and talked-about film genres, and yet, outside of the Hammer studio, very little has been written about British horror. Going beyond Hammer, British Horror Cinema investigates a wealth of horror filmmaking in Britain, from early chillers like The Ghoul and Dark Eyes of London to acknowledged classics such as Peeping Tom and The Wicker Man. Contributors explore the contexts in which British horror films have been censored and classified, judged by their critics and consumed by their fans. Uncovering neglected modern classics like Deathline, and addressing issues such as the representation of family and women, they consider the Britishness of British horror and examine sub-genres such as the psycho-thriller and witchcraft movies, the work of the Amicus studio, and key filmmakers including Peter Walker. British Horror Cinema also features a comprehensive filmography and interviews with key directors Clive Barker and Doug Bradley. Chapters include: *the 'Psycho Thriller' *the British censors and horror cinema *femininity and horror film fandom *witchcraft and the occult in British horror *Horrific films and 1930s British Cinema *Peter Walker and Gothic revisionism Brigid Terry, Steve Chibnall,Ian Conrich, Leon Hunt, Peter Hutchings, Mark Kermode, Kim Newman, Marcelle Perks, Julian Petley, Steven
