Product Overview

This critical examination of modern horror cinema highlights particularly how such films reflect social anxieties of their times, representing the most popular, accessible expression of society''s everyday fears, but also expressing much about the nation''s political values. This revised edition includes new chapters which update the horror genre through the eighties, nineties, and the present. New material focuses on such directors as Brian DePalma, David Cronenberg, and M. Night Shyamalan; high-profile remakes; and wildly popular Asian millennial horror. The book includes more than 800 photographs as well as interviews with William Friedkin, Robert Aldrich, George A. Romero, Curtis Harrington, and William Castle.
