Description - Masks in Horror Cinema: Eyes Without Faces by Alexandra Heller-Nicholas
Masks in Horror Cinema explores the endurance of the mask in this genre. As a transformative device, masks are approached historically and cross-culturally to examine how masked rituals intersect with power, ideology and identity. The power of the mask evolves in horror movies, reflecting new contexts and rendering them a persistent and dynamic aspect of horror's iconography.
