Description - Horror, The Film Reader by Mark Jancovich

Horror, The Film Reader brings together key articles to provide a comprehensive resource for students of horror cinema. Mark Jancovich's introduction traces the development of horror film from The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari to The Blair Witch Project, and outlines the main critical debates. Combining classic and recent articles, each section explores a central issue of horror film, and features an editor's introduction outlining the context of debates. Sections include: * Theorising horror traces attempts to identify the defining features of the genre and account for the enduring appeal of horror films * Gender, sexuality and the horror film explores masculinity and feminity in horror films, focussing on female victims and heroes, issues of the gaze and the monstrous, and queer readings * Producing horrors looks at the context in which films are made, from James Whale's Frankenstein to the Hammer studio, tracing horror's relationship to both 'low culture' and avant-garde cinema * Consuming fears considers the changing audience of horror, studying female horror fans, the critical reception of The Silence of the Lambs, and exploring how Psycho changed cinema going. Includes essays by: Harry M. Benshoff, Rhona Berenstein, Noel Carroll, Brigid Cherry, Carol Clover, Barbara Creed, Paul O'Flinn, Joan C. Hawkins, Peter Hutchings, Mark Jancovich, Andrew Tudor, Linda Williams and Robin Wood. Contributors include: Harry M. Benshoff, Rhona Berenstein, Noel Carroll, Brigid Cherry, Carol Clover, Barbara Creed, Paul O'Flinn, Joan C. Hawkins, Peter Hutchings, Mark Jancovich, Andrew Tudor, Linda
