Synopsis

One of the few books to address the horror film from any kind of critical position. Unique - The first history of the horror film to approach it from a queer perspective. Written with detail and thoroughness - covers all eras of the horror film and correlates specific types of movie monsters to the historical social conditions which produced them. Explores how popular culture encodes and demonizes queerness within the generic format of the horror film.
