Horror Film : A Critical Introduction, Paperback / softback Book

Horror Film : A Critical Introduction Paperback / softback

Part of the Film Genres series


Throughout the history of cinema, horror has proven to be a genre of consistent popularity, which adapts to different cultural contexts while retaining a recognizable core.

Horror Film: A Critical Introduction, the newest in Bloomsbury's Film Genre series, balances the discussions of horror's history, theory, and aesthetics as no introductory book ever has.

Featuring studies of films both obscure and famous, Horror Film is international in its scope and chronicles horror from its silent roots until today.

As a straightforward and convenient critical introduction to the history and key academic approaches, this book is accessible to the beginner but still of interest to the expert.
