The castle on the hill. The fog on the moor. A baying hound howling at the moon. A vampire takes flight. And an evil scientist creates a Man-Made Monster…
All of these are popular images we have of horror stories and films. But there is more to horror than that. The best horror frightens us, questions the world we live in, and most importantly, asks questions about ourselves.
Now, through Emerald Publishing, two exciting examinations of Gender in Contemporary Horror on TV and in Film have burst, like the living dead from their graves, out into the open! With another volume completing the trinity-of-evil out later in the year, these cutting-edge volumes have brought together cream-of-the-crop writers to explore a diverse range of horror subjects linked to gender-based themes across television, film and other forms of media such as graphic novels, and board and video games.
Edited by Dr Steven Gerrard, Dr Samantha Holland and Professor Robert Shail, these are a ghoulish treat. Dare you read them…alone?
