European Nightmares : Horror Cinema in Europe Since 1945 Hardback

Edited by Patricia Allmer, David Huxley, Emily Brick


This volume is the first edited collection of essays focusing on European horror cinema from 1945 to the present.

It features new contributions by distinguished international scholars exploring British, French, Spanish, Italian, German and Northern European and Eastern European horror cinema.

The essays employ a variety of current critical methods of analysis, ranging from psychoanalysis and Deleuzean film theory to reception theory and historical analysis.

The complete volume offers a major resource on post-war European horror cinema, with in-depth studies of such classic films as Seytan (Turkey, 1974), Suspiria (Italy, 1977), Switchblade Romance (France, 2003), and Taxidermia (Hungary, 2006).
