UCB Moffitt PN1995.9.H6 B24 1995
This fascinating study relates horror film to recent interpretations of the body and the self, drawing from feminist film theory, psychoanalytic theory, cultural criticism and gender studies. Applying the term "horror" broadly, this work includes discussions of black comedy, thrillers, science fiction, and slasher films. Central to this book is the view of horror as a modern iconography and "discourse" of the body. Badley's thought-provoking analysis of films by directors Tim Burton, Tobe Hooper, George Romero, Ridley Scott, Brian De Palma, David Lynch, David Cronenberg, Jonathan Demme, and Clive Barker, will be of interest to both scholars and students.

What is the attraction of horror films? Do they have any socially redeeming features? Rockett offers some surprising and provocative answers to these questions in his analysis of the cinema of cruelty. He looks at film as a means of expressing the dark side of human nature and examines the essential ingredients that go into the making of a horror film, the variations that are found within the genre, and the links between the best horror cinema and Artaud's Theatre of Cruelty. Echoing Artaud, Rockett argues that human beings are attracted to horror in films because of an unconscious craving for a reality in which the demonic supernatural acts as a "living whirlwind," "devouring the darkness" and bringing viewers closer to the transcendence they are actually seeking. The final chapter shows how the finest works in the horror genre achieve this underlying aim. [publisher description]

"Splatter film was first introduced in George Romero's neo-classic 'Night of the Living Dead' released in 1968. This film and others of its kind use gore and graphic violence to show that evil is outside the sphere to which moral judgments apply. Splatter films differ from typical horror films because they revel in the special effects of gore as an artform. They are part of postmodern art and depict postmodern condition as a vehicle for cultural transformation." [Magazine Index]

"Focuses on 2 interrelated changes in horror films of the last 25 years: a tendency for the "horror" to become internalized; and the use of what the author calls "bubbling flesh" to signify the internalized horror. Taking two films, the 1958 The Fly and its 1986 remake, and treating them as (paranoid) fantasies, the author explores what he takes to be the unconscious meanings of these changes. Although both films present oedipal as well as preoedipal conflicts, and although both employ paranoid mechanisms of negation and projection of an unacceptable wish, the earlier film also makes greater use of repression to keep the preoedipal wishes farther from consciousness. The earlier film is also more successful in its projection: In the later film the projective mechanisms fail and the projected returns to its original locus. The particular unacceptable wish is a radically passive wish for merger with the mother, a merger wish so radical that it can be seen in terms of H. Guntrip's (1969) "return to the womb" wishes, and so passive that it can be seen as a nearly pure form of Freud's death drive. The differences between the 2 films are associated with societal changes in the past decades, and especially with traditionally conceived gender role changes."

"Pain is crucial to how audiences relate to the horror film, but not as a vehicle through which audiences can sympathize with the monster's victims. Rather, it is the monster's pain that dictates audience positioning in the horror film. Horror films present two contrasting modes of monstrous suffering: masochism and menstruation. These two options determine audience identification in gendered terms. Masochism is a vital aspect of the construction of male monsters, who initiate their sadistic rampages with acts of self-mutilation. The female counterpart to the act of self-mutilation is menstruation, a narrative event that puts the viewer in an uncomfortably close relationship to the female monster. These differences between the masochistic and menstrual plots of the genre expose an underlying conservatism in a potentially radical genre." [Art Index]

"In Skin Shows, her study of gothic horror, Judith Halberstam argues that '[m]onsters are meaning machines'. Narratives about monsters create meaning by defining the border between normal and monstrous desire. This essay offers a close reading of horror films from three very different periods of the genre's history-- Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, The Haunting, and Scream--to demonstrate how these films represent queer desire as monstrous, disruptive and violent. Reading these cinematic representations alongside Christian discourses of sodomy demonstrates that the study of religion and the study of popular culture can inform each other, that theological meaning can be found in the artifacts of popular culture and that these artefacts can only be fully understood by attending to their theological meanings. The essay concludes with suggestions regarding how such artifacts can be engaged to support queer political projects." [Ingenta]

Between 1958 and 1962, Castle became famous for the stunts he used to promote his low-budget horror films. They included insurance against causing 'death by fright,' glasses that caused the viewers to see 'ghosts' and electrical charges wired into theater seats. His classic 'The Tingler' is analysed.

"Comments on the current popularity of horror films, citing the success of "The Sixth Sense," "The Blair Witch Project," "The Haunting" and "Stigmata." Recalls some early horror pictures, such as the 1916 debut of Frankenstein in a 16-minute short, and the 1913 work "The Werewolf." Asserts that "The Exorcist" was a peak for the genre in 1972, as were the films featuring Freddy Krueger, Jason, and Michael Myers, and that horror was brought back to the limelight by the pop-cultural spin on its formula: "Scream." Contends that aside from "Scream" the formula seems to remain the same, offering "photogenic kids being knocked off by maniacs accompanied by loud music and endless false alarms."

"American youth culture saw the rise of horror films with classic monsters during the late 1950s. Popular adaptations of Gothic fiction by Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Edgar Allen Poe were reflective of adolescent interests and opinions. However, change did occur from terror to comedy with Rock 'n' roll music and its lyrics that resulted in youthful adaptation of horror themes. To adult listeners, these songs were silly and nonsense in nature." [Magazine Index]

"Maintaining that some of the most terrifying realist horror offerings in cinema can be found in gangster movies, Don Diego suggests that the the iconic film gangster be included among the established American horror icons. Drawing on the example of Brian DePlama's 1983 version of "Scarface" and several other gangster films, Don Diego notes that their combination of suspence, horror, and mayhem that surpass many traditional horror films. She traces the use of stylized scenes of carnage in such films and dicusses the shared elements of the two genres. Similarities with horror can be seen in gangster films' use of violence, the horrific nature of mob activities, the portrayal of gangsters as subhuman, and audience's morbid fascination with the genre."

"Horror films are not very enjoyable if the viewer believes that the fictions are only fictions and, thus, the monsters are not quite as frightening as they should be. These films present very little to reward the viewer's curiosity except for presenting grotesque figures, since most of the plots of these films are simple and oftentimes predictable. Perhaps one of the few ways to enjoy horror films is to allow them to recreate negative emotions of fear that are sometimes experienced in life." [Magazine Index]

These films specifically address the concerns and values of the affluent yuppie society that is caught in a period of recession. The evil characters in the horror movies are projections of subdued aspirations, like traditional monsters, and threaten materiality more than mortality. These movies also rely on the visual and narrative conventions of classic horror films. Films of both genres are compared and contrasted." [Magazine Index]

"The author discusses several horror films of the 1950s that used scenes of hypnosis as marketing gimmicks, such as "HypnoVista" in "Horrors of the Black Museum," "Psycho-Rama" in "My World Dies Screaming," "Hypno-Magic" in "The Hypnotic Eye," and "Percepto" in "The Tingler." One crucial component of 1950s horror was "the fear of the increasing top-down management of both economic and psychic life in rationalized, postwar America." A larger explanation includes the "complex interweaving of the aesthetic, technological, social, and economic histories of American film during the industry's precipitous and sustained decline in box-office attendance after the war." As the star system declined and younger audiences became over-familiar with genre conventions, production dropped and movies used outlandish plots and publicity stunts to draw attention. Advertising was perceived to be behind the times. Trailers grew in importance to campaigns, and the marketing began to reflect influences from the study of psychology. The characters and narrative techniques from several hypnosis horror films of the 1950s are discussed." [IIPA]

"Humphries extensively analyzes several horror films that depict serial killers and focuses on what he terms hitthe presence of an unquenchable "hitdeath hitdrive" that exists within each serial killer character and is enacted hitin each film. Drawing hitthe concept of hitthe "hitdeath hitdrive" from Sigmund Freud's psychoanalysis, Humphries also applies Jacques Lacan's concept of "jouissance" - hitthe human's need for greater and greater amounts of pleasure - and hitthe notion of an entity that represents a human's object of desire. Examining serial killer films such as "hitThe Hitcher," "Seven," and "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer," Humphries illustrates how hitthe murderers hitin each film fuse their incessant hitdrive towards gruesome carnage with a search for hitthe ultimate object of their wrath; such a quest, he argues, is hitin actuality hitthe serial killer's quest for his own hitdeath."

" In a discussion of the connection between hitGothic literature and horror films, Morgan examines the importance of realistic and semi-realistic films that appeared in the 1980s and combined elements of the film noir and horror genres. He concentrates especially on Brian Hutton's "The First Deadly Sin" (1980), Brian DePalma's "Blowout" (1981), Richard Tuggle's "Tightrope" (1984), Alan Parker's "Angel heart" (1987), and Adrian Lyne's "Fatal Attraction" (1987). He maintains that all the films conflate crime and particularly noir conventions with hitgothic ones to produce a crossbreed form, one in which the protagonist becomes seemingly vulnerable and "descends into the dark night of the soul usually associated with horror invention.""

"Horror has literary, popular cultural and film appeal, but has not been included in the theoretical framework that encompasses tragedy, comedy and other major forms. There have been works on Gothic and its aesthetics and theory, one of the earliest being 'One the Pleasure derived from Objects of Terror' by Aiken and Barbauld, 1775. Gothic tales can be seen as closed systems, with little information on actual dates and locations. Horror does not give pleasure in real life, but horror as an art form can be experienced both as intellectual prception and as a bodily registration." [Magazine Index]

"Kendall Watson's theory of fiction as make-believe relies on a cognitive interpretation of fear as requiring an intentional object and a belief that it is dangerous. However, fear does not always have an intentional object, as shown by instinctive fears caused by falling, loud noises, sudden movements, excess novelty or contagion from the fears of others. Furthermore, fear need not involve belief that one is in danger. Fear may be felt for others who are in danger or may be stimulated by thinking about danger. The fear occasioned by horror movies involves sympathetic fear for the characters." [Magazine Index]

"Discusses the gender socialization of horror. The horror genre has continued to fascinate audiences through the combination of frightening plots with nonverbal elements. Horror films seem to tap an inner vein that is subliminal and emotional in nature. Increasingly, they have incorporated the ever-popular ingredients of violence and sex. In this chapter, the authors contend that they also fulfill important social and psychological functions. The evolution of the horror film and its early imagery is explored. Coping with fear is one of the most basic human emotions. Horror triggers vicarious fears. Not only can viewers derive enjoyment from the thrill that horror provides, horror also gives them a chance to "act out" deep-seated gender-based emotions. Males use it as a vehicle to display their mastery of fear and danger. Females, on the other hand, use horror-viewing situations as an opportunity to seek comfort from their male companion."

Studies of cognition show that Americans get much of their political information from audiovisual media. Therefore, attention to popular films can help us learn how genre conventions communicate politics. The popular genre of horror uses subtexts to help people face political evils in their everyday lives. Many of the evils lately concern the politics of communication, and this is evident in a wide range of horror films, recently including Phone Boo Ring (2002), and The Mothman Prophecies (2001).

"Postmodern horror films do not have well defined boundaries, and are irrational. Contrasting elements, like life and death, good and evil, and normal and abnormal, are sometimes indistinguishable. The post-1968 films produce an experience of fear through their environment and setting, and through the use of devices like comedy, and melodrama. The films portray an unstable world in which violence and irrationalism are a part of everyday life. The portrayal of violence in the films relies on exhibiting explicit violence, creative death, and mutilated body. They also lack narrative closure." [Magazine Index]

Results indicate that male protagonists consistently outnumbered females and females were more often depicted as victims at least until recently. However, the most common depictions were those of aggression and victimization involving characters of undetermined gender. COPYRIGHT 1998 Eastern Communication Association. [Magazine Index]

The pastoral world of innocence was lost and characters gained the forbidden knowledge. Noir took away the supernatural aspects of horror films. It brought back horror films from a foreign setting to credible domestic landscapes. Horror films also enriched the genre of film noir by raising the crime film from its proletarian origin to a fanciful world of metaphoric powers." [Magazine Index]

"Horror film functions both as a threat and a catharsis by confronting us with our fear of death, the supernatural, the unknown and irrational, ''the other" in general, a loss of identity, and forces beyond our control. Over the last century, religious symbols and themes have played a prominent and persistent role in the on-screen construction of this confrontation. That role is, at the same time, ambiguous insofar as religious iconography has become unhinged from a compelling moral vision and reduced to mere conventions that produce a quasi-religious quality to horror that lacks the symbolic power required to engage us at the deepest level of our being. Although religious symbols in horror films are conventional in their frequent use, they may have lost all connection to deeper human questions."

"Employing the extremes of self-reflexivity with copious intertextual references to earlier horror landmarks, postmodern horror texts revitalized the ailing genre in the mid-1990s and continue to boast commercial success. A certain kinship has existed between postmodernism and horror for quite some time. The examination of the interconnections facilitates a greater understanding of contemporary horror cinema as well as a new model through which to view the genre as a whole. Both are fundamentally concerned with parallel questions about how we perceive and make sense of the world around us and both offer comparable models for ordering the knowledge we possess about the external world."

"A survey was conducted to determine the antecedents of the exposure to and appeal of horror films. Audience members leaving the theater after viewing Halloween II were interviewed using a questionnaire that contained measures of specific reasons for liking horror films as well as measures of several individual-difference variables. A model emerged from structural equation analysis indicating that three important factors in the appeal of horror films are (a) the audience's desire to experience the satisfying resolutions usually provided in these films, (b) the audience's desire to see the destruction often found in these films, and (c) the sensation-seeking personality traits of audience members for these films. In addition, age and gender were important predictors. Horror films were enjoyed more by males and by younger viewers."

"What is the appeal of horror? Various attempts have been made to answer this question, generally combining arguments about the nature of horror texts with arguments about the distinctive character of horror consumers. The most common attempts at general explanation are grounded in concepts drawn from psychoanalytic theory, some depending quite directly on Freud's 'return of the repressed' argument in his discussion of 'the uncanny', others utilizing the framework of 'structural psychoanalysis' to explore the ways in which the unconscious structures forms of representation. Examples of both forms of analysis are discussed - largely in relation to horror movies - exemplified in the recent work of Wood, Twitchell, Creed and Clover. General explanations which do not use psychoanalytic arguments are less common, though Carroll has recently offered one such approach which is given consideration here. It is argued that these attempts at posing general explanations of the appeal of horror are, at worst, inappropriately reductive and, at best, insufficiently specific, failing to distinguish the diverse pleasures that heterogeneous horror audiences take from their active involvement in the genre. Alternative, more particularistic approaches are considered (exemplified in aspects of work by Biskind, Carroll, Dika, Jancovich and Tudor) which seek to relate textual features to specific social circumstances. It is argued that such approaches pre-suppose a social ontology centred upon active social agents who use cultural artefacts as resources in rendering coherent their everyday lives. This is in some contrast to attempts to provide general explanations of horror's appeal where the tacit model is one in which human agents are pre-constituted in key respects, horror appealing, therefore, because it gratifies pre-established desires. It is suggested that the former, active and particularistic conception is to be preferred and that this necessitates a renewed attempt to grasp the diversity of what is, after all, a heterogenous audience capable of taking diverse pleasures from their favoured genre."

Author Abstract: "This experiment assesses the impact of two exposure strategies on children's emotional and cognitive reactions to a frightening movie scene. Children from two grade levels (kindergarten and first vs. second through fourth) received a desensitization treatment in which modeled exposure to a live earthworm was factorially varied with exposure to graphic photographs of worms taken from a horror film. Children then viewed a frightening scene involving worms taken from this same film. Results indicated that exposure to photographs increased children's enjoyment of the movie segment and reduced fear reactions to the scene. In contrast, the live exposure strategy was effective in reducing fear reactions to the movie only among boys. However, live exposure did alter children's affective reactions to and judgments of worms themselves. The findings are discussed in terms of current theories of desensitization and information processing." COPYRIGHT International Communication Association 1993. [Magazine Index]

Author Abstract: This experiment assesses the effectiveness of two reality explanations on children's reactions to a frightening program. Children from two age groups (5-6 vs. 7-9 years) were assigned to one of three conditions before watching a frightening movie scene: special tricks explanation, real life explanation, or no explanation. Results revealed that neither of the reality instructions influenced younger children's emotional or cognitive reactions to the program. In contrast, the special tricks explanation reduced older children's emotional responses to the movie, but had no impact on their interpretations of the program. Unexpectedly, the real life explanation did not influence older children's emotional reactions, and had only a limited effect on interpretations of the program. The findings are discussed in terms of developmental differences in perceived reality. COPYRIGHT Speech Communication Association 1991. [Magazine Index]

"The writer discusses how certain 1940s horror films were revised to meet the needs of wartime propaganda during World War II. The horror film declined to B-movie status during the 1940s as a result of the real horrors of the war and therefore ceased to command wide audiences or critical respect. Certain studio horror films produced after Pearl Harbor can be viewed as historical products influenced by wartime propaganda themes defined by the U.S. government's Office of War Information (OWI). Hollywood's cooperation with the government in the creation of wartime propaganda in horror films is documented in the OWI's Bureau of Motion Picture files, which show that changes in film content can often be traced to the process of direct OWI/studio interaction. The writer goes on to discuss several wartime horror films, including Columbia's Return of the Vampire, a particularly intriguing genre variation, in which Bela Lugosi as Count Dracula stalks England during the Nazi Blitz."

Worland examines the movie and compares and contrasts its central character, its plot, and its overall theme to previous Price star vehicles of the 1950s and 1960s as well as the 1925 silent version of "The Phantom of the Opera."

The films of John Carpenter cover a tremendous range and yet all bear his clear personal stamp. From the horrifying (Halloween) to the touching (Starman) to the controversial (The Thing) to the comic (Big Trouble in Little China), his films reflect a unique approach to filmmaking and singular views of humanity and American culture. This analysis of Carpenter's films includes a historical overview of his career, and in-depth entries on each of his films, from 1975's Dark Star to 1998?s Vampires. Complete cast and production information is provided for each.

Recently, cinema has been inundated with 1970s/1980s 'slasher' horror canon 're-imaginings,' such as Halloween (2007). Comparing remakes to originals, the remake texts allegorically address contemporary concerns and power structures. Cultural implications of slasher remakes include hyperemphasis of the originals' hegemony and misogyny. Ironically, the remakes contain optimistic endings, pointing to hegemonic, misogynistic futures. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]

The films of John Carpenter cover a tremendous range and yet all bear his clear personal stamp. From the horrifying (Halloween) to the touching (Starman) to the controversial (The Thing) to the comic (Big Trouble in Little China), his films reflect a unique approach to filmmaking and singular views of humanity and American culture. This analysis of Carpenter?s films includes a historical overview of his career, and in-depth entries on each of his films, from 1975?s Dark Star to 1998?s Vampires. Complete cast and production information is provided for each. The book also covers those films written and produced by Carpenter, such as Halloween II and Black Moon Rising, as well as Carpenter?s work for television. Appendices are included on films Carpenter was offered but turned down, the slasher films that followed in the wake of the highly-successful Halloween, the actors and characters who make repeated appearances in Carpenter?s films, and ratings for Carpenter?s work. Notes, bibliography, and index are included. [publisher's description]

"Martin Harris analyzes hitthe "Halloween" series of films, with a focus on "Halloween III: Season of hitthe Witch," in order to assess hitthe prevalence and endurance of modern horror movie franchises through a discussion of hitthe second sequel's promotion and reception. What makes "Halloween III" especially interesting in this context is hitthe way hitthe narrative of hitthe conflict between commercialism and art surrounding hitthe film is reflected in hitthe film itself. Harris also argues that hitthe economic realities of Hollywood more directly explain hitthe continuation of horror franchises than does postmodern theory." [IIPA]

"American director John Carpenter boasts one of the most consistent and coherent oeuvres in modern cinema, in spite of his marginalization by critics. His cinematic triumphs, including Assault on Precinct 13, Halloween, and The Fog, far outnumber his minor or problematic movies. Although he has been outcast largely on account of shifting fashions, Carpenter stands alone as the last genre filmmaker in the United States." [Art Index]

"Examines science fiction films of the 1950's (made during the Cold War) and their remakes in the 1970's and 1980's (made in the post-1960's, after Vietnam and Watergate) in conjunction with stories told by social scientists during the same eras. The authors provide a subversive reading of social scientific datasets and science fiction films and pay special attention to both versions of The Thing (1951, 1982) as relevant examples of Cold War and post-1960's statements. Social scientific and film productions of the 1950's correlate with optimistic public sentiments of the Cold War era in regard to the abilities of the military, government, and medicine to solve social problems. The more recent reproductions conjure images of a much more pessimistic view of institutions. Readings of social scientific products, science fiction films, and their remakes can inform social theories in general and postmodern social theories in particular." [America: History and Life]

Other conflicts were tackled in the Nightmare movies, such as conflicts between the youth and the police; between young people and work; and between young people and religion."

The article presents the author's view on horror and cultural dimensions of the film series directed by Wes Craven including "Scream," "Scream 2," and "Scream 3." According to the author, the Scream trilogy is based on certain assumptions related to media effects theory that argues about the effect of repeated watching of violent and horror acts on a person's orientation to commit violence. The films analyzes popular culture as politics of modern era.

"The "Scream" Trilogy, "Hyperpostmodernism," and the Late Nineties Teen Slasher Film." Journal of Film and Video v. 57 no. 3 (Fall 2005) p. 44-61
UC users only
"The films in the Scream trilogy are examples of hyperpostmodernism. This trilogy, which together grossed the highest combined box office ever for a horror franchise, emerged as the representative texts of the slasher film as well as of the teen film of the late 1990s, significantly influencing the entertainment industry as a whole. More significantly, it helped legitimize the slasher/horror/exploitation genre, with great acclaim from both the public and the critics. Its films represent a distinctive, more advanced form of postmodernism characterized by a heightened, self-conscious degree of intertextual referencing and self-reflexivity, and by a propensity for ignoring film-specific boundaries by actively using strategies strategies that have further blurred the boundaries that once separated discrete media--referencing, "borrowing," and influencing the styles and formats of other media forms, including television."

"The focus on consumerism that turns people into zombies whose desires are controlled by cultural training to want has been exploited in many American films including George A. Romero's zombie trilogy. These films show people returning from the dead or just being taken over so that they no longer have control or emotions. Many of the films also show looting and 'free shopping' as a sign of civilization's collapse because that is what the desires pressed upon people for more and more material goods can result in."

"The article presents studies of several international movies that underwent remake due to political correction. These films include "Rollerball," directed by Norman Jewison and "Dawn of the Dead," directed by George A. Romero. It states that the works of Jewison have offered insufficient historical information especially on elaboration of totalitarian society and dystopian vision. On the other hand, the works of Romero made wrong distinct perspective to select shopping malls as the footage for mindless zombies. The author emphasizes that the movies did not get the essence of political economic topics." [EBSCO]

UC users only
"Romero's masterpiece about cannibal zombies plaguing the world is set in a US shopping center, redefining the zombie so as to infect consumer identity. The popular perception of mindless consumer as zombie is owed strictly to Dawn of the Dead (1979), and extends far beyond the film's genre, demographics and era. This film - itself a commodity - has earned a place in the American imagination by undermining that very imagination's dependence on commodity culture. A combination of film analysis, cultural studies and personal narrative, this essay endeavors to tell the story of the story called Dawn of the Dead by locating the postmodern zombie historically in popular culture, analyzing the film as a satire of what Romero calls 'the false security of consumer society', exploring Dawn as a commodity itself (one appropriated by the very consumer culture Romero sought to subvert), considering Dawn as a master tale spawning 'rip-offs' and hybrids, and articulating all the while the parallels between Dawn's postmodern zombie and the North American consumer."

"Splatter film was first introduced in George Romero's neo-classic 'Night of the Living Dead' released in 1968. This film and others of its kind use gore and graphic violence to show that evil is outside the sphere to which moral judgments apply. Splatter films differ from typical horror films because they revel in the special effects of gore as an artform. They are part of postmodern art and depict postmodern condition as a vehicle for cultural transformation." [Expanded Academic Index]

The remake differs from the original film in that it offers a variety of different explanations, rather than a single one, for the plague of zombies. Romero's zombies can be interpreted as representations of an alienated underclass, those workers and consumers who have become displaced by economic and political developments." [Magazine Index]

Zombie firms are those firms that are insolvent and have little hope of recovery but avoid failure thanks to support from their banks. This paper identifies zombie firms in Japan, and compares the characteristics of zombies to other firms. Zombie firms are found to be less profitable, more indebted, more dependent on their main banks, more likely to be found in non-manufacturing industries and more often located outside large metropolitan areas. Overall, larger size makes the firm less likely to be a zombie, but among small firms, relatively larger firms are more likely to be protected and become zombies. Controlling for profitability, the exit probability for zombie firms does not differ from that for non-zombies. Zombie firms tend to increase employment by more (but do not reduce employment by more) than non-zombies. Finally, when the proportion of zombie firms in an industry increases, job creation declines and job destruction increases, and the effects are stronger for non-zombies.

As the story ends, Ben, one of the protagonists who fight zombies, is shot dead by law enforcers who have mistaken for him for a zombie. The death of the African-American hero is seen by many as manifestation of racial discrimination in the 1960s. Another scene that mirrors racial tension is when a white female protagonist trembles upon seeing Ben, apparently not because he looks like a zombie, but because of his race." [Ebsco]

The article discusses the influence of the 1968 film "Night of the Living Dead" as social criticism and as the first modern horror film to use contagion as a theme. It notes that "Night of the Living Dead" diverges from traditional vampire and zombie films in that it removes the seductiveness of surrender from the formula. Its influence is seen as the threat of communicability and the power of one scratch to change one's identity forever.

They allow for an enhanced recognition and vivid appreciation of the racist cycle of suffering, the crucial roles of patriarchal entitlement, class struggle, the commercialization of human relations, and urban alienation in the Lewton's films."

"George Romero's 'Night of the Living Dead' has been remade by Tom Savini. The remake differs from the original film in that it offers a variety of different explanations, rather than a single one, for the plague of zombies. Romero's zombies can be interpreted as representations of an alienated underclass, those workers and consumers who have become displaced by economic and political developments."

"The article examines the cultural significance and importance of the Victor Halperin's horror film "White Zombie." The author contends that when read critically through the context of colonial and postcolonial theory, several alarming themes and subtextual messages are apparent in the film. He argues that instead of enlightening western audiences about the cultural realities of Haiti, the film merely exploits rumors of voodoo practices and paganism. He asserts that racial dichotomies are only enforced by portraying whites as universally righteous and casting blacks as potentially wicked." [Ebsco]

Zombie firms are those firms that are insolvent and have little hope of recovery but avoid failure thanks to support from their banks. This paper identifies zombie firms in Japan, and compares the characteristics of zombies to other firms. Zombie firms are found to be less profitable, more indebted, more dependent on their main banks, more likely to be found in non-manufacturing industries and more often located outside large metropolitan areas. Overall, larger size makes the firm less likely to be a zombie, but among small firms, relatively larger firms are more likely to be protected and become zombies. Controlling for profitability, the exit probability for zombie firms does not differ from that for non-zombies. Zombie firms tend to increase employment by more (but do not reduce employment by more) than non-zombies. Finally, when the proportion of zombie firms in an industry increases, job creation declines and job destruction increases, and the effects are stronger for non-zombies.

The English Hammer horror films not only resuscitated the creatures found in American horror films of the 1930s, they also cut them up and sewed them back together as hybrids that were as audacious as they were deadly. The Hammer films also treated violence, sex, and childhood in a daring manner." [Art Index]

"Hammer's cosy violence." Sight & Sound v. ns6 (August 1996) p. 10-13
"In light of the August 1996 month-long Hammer season at the Barbican Cinema, London, the writer discusses some of the films produced by the Hammer studios. He points out that the history of the studio teaches us that the uneasy symbiotic relationship between British film and television goes back a very long way. The keynote of the Hammer project, he argues, was the smuggling in of something faintly subversive, a distant recognition of British national vices, secrets, or uncertainties under the guise of a sensational entertainment. He shows that the Hammer films are absolutely typical of English culture in the way they insist that extremes of violence and extremes of cosiness can and must coexist. The films discussed include The Curse of Frankenstein, Dracula, The Quatermass Xperiment, The Mummy, and Curse of the Werewolf." [Art Index]

"This article considers the ways in which a range of films (made between 1957 and 1974) by British director Terence Fisher represented Europe in general, and Transylvania in particular. Fisher was able to take advantage of laisser-faire managerial conditions at Hammer in the 1950s, and the studio itself profited from the economic and legislative changes in 1950s British cinema. Fisher was able to gain a modicum of control over the scripting and editing processes, and, because he shared the aesthetic approach of his art director Bernard Robinson, was able to make a series of films which had the same visual style and approach to cinematic and geographical space. Fisher's Transylvania films worked by stripping the protagonists' demeanour bare, and by using irony and disavowal as a means of presenting an imaginary country where the audience's national, social and sexual fears could be safely explored."

Many classic horror movies have been banned in UK due to their hardcore portrayal of death and violence. The British Board received a major threat due to the increase in videos in the 1980s, as previously banned movies were now easily made public through these videos. The release of the uncensored version of 'The Evil Dead' reveals the inability of the BBFC to censor horror movies." [Magazine Index]

The horror film produced by Hammer flourished in the late 1950s. The British-made films changed the look of horror films by reveling in sexuality and gore. 'The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) was Hammer's first gothic horror film. The failure of 'Phantom of the Opera' in 1962 spelled the end of Hammer's success.

"Balmain discusses hitMario hitBava'hits 1963 horror film "Ragazza che sapeva troppo" ("The Evil Eye") with a focus on how it does not fit into the prescribed notion of "realistic" horror films as set by Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" and Michael Powell's "Peeping Tom" in 1960. The film marked the creation of a different horror/thriller genre hybrid known as "giallo," and set the genre's codes and conventions. Balmain asserts that the globalization of modern horror cinema has led to the silencing of its many variations, and consequently, the impact of auteurs such as Bava on the development of the horror film has been neglected. She emphasizes that hitBava'hits negation of psychoanalysis in "The Evil Eye" in both plot and theme sets it apart from other realistic horror films." [IIPA]

Italian horror films of the 1960s were filled with aristocratic vampires and vengeful ghosts. They did not usually recreate any specific time period but were set sometime in the past. No one was innocent in these films and beauty often hid the darkest evil.

UC users only
Author Abstract: The content of slasher films was examined, focusing on what portion of the violence is directed toward and committed by women vs. men and the survival rates, the juxtaposition of sex and violence for male and female victims, and differences between male and female survivors vs. nonsurvivors. Five student coders analyzed 56 slasher films (474 victims). Female and male victims were portrayed equally frequently in these films. Male characters were as likely to die as female characters as a result of the attack; however, more female than male characters survived the attacks. The slashers were primarily men. Sexiness was paired with nonsurvival of female victims, whereas male nonsurvivors were portrayed as possessing negative masculine traits. The reinforcement of the good vs. bad woman dichotomy and the portrayed cost of unmitigated extreme masculinity in men in slasher films are discussed. COPYRIGHT Plenum Publishing Corporation 1990.

"The author discusses teen slasher films and how their constructs relate to late-20th century family structures. Adults in these films are either absent or useless, so the teen characters must overcome the supernatural killer on their own. As divorce became more common in the second half of the century, the family unit became weaker. In the slasher films of the late 1980s and 90s, the actions of the parents are what put the children at risk. The survivor characters, the teens who see their friends killed throughout the movie, possess similar traits: they are smart and quick-thinking as well as caring. Several hithorror movies, such as the "Friday the 13th" and "Nightmare on Elm Street" series, are discussed." [IIPA]

"Analysis of Fred Molitor and Barry S. Sapolsky's research on the portrayal of women in slasher films refutes their interpretation. They concluded that violence is less frequently targeted against women than men and that there is no link between sex and aggression. However, they do not indicate their reference point for these comparisons. Compared with other genres, slasher films have a higher percentage of female victims. Molitor, Sapolsky and J.B. Weaver's data, read in conjunction with other mass-media research, actually serves to highlight the ways in which slasher films are violent against women." [Magazine Index]

Recently, cinema has been inundated with 1970s/1980s 'slasher' horror canon 're-imaginings,' such as Halloween (2007). Comparing remakes to originals, the remake texts allegorically address contemporary concerns and power structures. Cultural implications of slasher remakes include hyperemphasis of the originals' hegemony and misogyny. Ironically, the remakes contain optimistic endings, pointing to hegemonic, misogynistic futures. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]

"Violence towards women in slasher films: a reply to Linz and Donnerstein. (response to Daniel Linz and Edward Donnerstein [above]) Journal of Broadcasting & Electronic Media v38, n2 (Spring, 1994):247-250.
"Research that refuted Daniel Linz and Edward Donnerstein's assertions about women being victimized in slasher films was an effort to empirically verify their claims. The research compared male and female victims and refuted their assertion that women are more often the victims in such movies. In responding to the research, Linz and Donnerstein have suggested the need for a cross-genre comparison. To adopt this new criteria, the comparison film genre needs to be defined. The analysis will be affected by the the kind of films chosen. If the films have few female characters, it will seem like women are disproportionately victimized." [Magazine Index]

"This study investigates gender-specific descriptions and perceptions of slasher films. Sixty Euro-American university students (30 males and 30 females) were asked to recount in a written survey the details of the most memorable slasher film they remember watching and describe the emotional reactions evoked by that film. A text analysis approach was used to examine and interpret informant responses. Males recall a high percentage of descriptive images associated with what is called rural terror, a concept tied to fear of strangers and rural landscapes, whereas females display a greater fear of family terror, which includes themes of betrayed intimacy, stalkings, and spiritual possession. It is found that females report a higher level and a greater number of fear reactions than males, who report more anger and frustration responses. Gender-specific fears as personalized through slasher film recall are discussed with relation to socialization practices and power-control theory. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre scared me to death. It was intensely unpleasant, even though it's a cheap splatter flick about some teenagers who get slaughtered by some deranged lunatics in rural Texas somewhere. I guess the most freaky thing about the movie is all the screaming. The one girl who barely escapes the chainsaw guy screams all throughout the movie. She is terrorized unrelentlessly, and after a series of close calls with the chainsaw she is finally rescued by a trucker. I was drained after seeing that film. The gore and graphic violence made me feel awful, almost guilty, for watching it." [SpringerLink]

"Adolescents' enjoyment of graphic horror: effects of viewers' attitudes and portrayals of victim." Communication Research v20, n1 (Feb, 1993):30 (21 pages).
UC users only Author Abstract: A study was conducted to examine the roles that adolescents' attitudes about sexuality and punishment play in their enjoyment of R-rated 'slasher films.' Ninety-six high school students completed a series of attitude questionnaires and rated their perceptions of a videotaped preview of a slasher film that varied the sexuality in the portrayasexual) with the gender of the victim who was killed at the film's conclusion. More permissive sexual attitudes and lower levels of punitiveness were associated with greater enjoyment of frightening films. However, traditional attitudes toward females' sexuality were positively associated with gore-watching motivations (e.g., watching slasher films 'to see the victims get what they deserve'). The manipulations of sexual behavior and gender of victim in the video preview had little effect on ratings of enjoyment overall. However, punitive attitudes toward sexuality were associated with greater overall enjoyment of the previews, and punitiveness was associated with greater enjoyment of the previews featuring sexuality. For male subjects, more traditional attitudes about females' sexuality were associated with greater enjoyment of previews featuring female victims. COPYRIGHT Sage Publications Inc. 1993.

"The notion of murder as art or aestheticized murder appears to be occurring with increasing frequency in Hollywood film productions. The 1990s marks the emergence of a new cinematic trend where murderers are depicted as semiotically informed people who follow the outline of a pre-established narrative manifest in a shared literature of images and then subsequently process their aesthetically arranged corpses through another layer of reportorial and/or electronic discourse."

"Discusses the role of heroines and hityouth in slasher films of the 1980s, specifically the "Nightmare on Elm Street," "Friday the 13th," and "Hellraiser" franchises. Focuses on the feminist, mental, and social issues that the heroines and monsters represent. Describes the idea of the hitFinal Girl - the lone female who fights and defeats the main villain - as the champion for overcoming oppression of both men and societal authority, while the monsters are horrible killers that stalk and eliminate members of the same twisted societies that created them. Suggests, ultimately, that the characters in slasher films find the boundaries between themselves and the monsters becoming fluid - they confront the wretched or repressed impulses within themselves as the monster emerges, bridging the gap between upstanding society and its unprivileged monsters."

In order to address this issue, a content analysis of 10 slasher movies was conducted. Although the data reveal that death and destruction are predominant components of slasher films, there is no evidence of a systematic bias in the appearances of deaths of protagonists as a function of gender. Other content attributes of these films are examined and their implications discussed. COPYRIGHT Broadcast Education Association 1991. [Magazine Index]

"The writer discusses how The Blair Witch Project, directed by Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Myrick, functions as a mock documentary. The film is about three student filmmakers who go missing in the Maryland woods while making a documentary on the myth of the Blair Witch. It uses some transparent strategies to highlight the fabricated nature of documentary representations, such as using young documentary filmmakers as the central protagonists. It tries to guide viewers toward a documentary mode of engagement through its construction of a documentary look: A video recorder is used to create a feeling for viewers that they are watching the story unfold in an unmediated way. In many ways, however, these strategies are heavy-handed and obvious, lacking the subtlety and skillfulness that characterize the same strategies in other mock documentaries. The Blair Witch Project does succeed in moving mock documentary out of the "arthouse" and into the mainstream, but it offers little to challenge documentary proper." [Art Index]

"Mary Shelley's 1817 novel Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus is now widely regarded as one of the founding texts of the science fiction and horror genres. The modern myth it established has been enormously influential across a whole range of media and cultural forms. Here, I want to examine how its story was retold in two of the most successful American television series of the last decade of the twentieth century and the first of the twenty-first: The X-Files , which ran from 1993 until 2002; and Buffy the Vampire Slayer , which ran from 1997 until 2003. I will focus on particular episodes from each series: 'The Postmodern Prometheus', which first went to air in November 1997, as part of the fifth season of The X-Files ; and the 'Adam' sequence from Buffy 's fourth season, a set of four linked episodes, comprising 'The I in Team', 'Goodbye Iowa', 'The Yoko Factor' and 'Primeval', first broadcast during 2000, on 8 and 15 February and 9 and 16 May, respectively. First, however, I want to say something about the more general characteristics of the two series."

"This reassessment of 1950s American horror film relates it to the cultural debates of the period and to other examples of the horror genre-novels and comics. Through close analysis of a wide range of films, such as Psycho, I Was A Teenage Werewolf, and Creature From the Black Lagoon, the author argues that horror films of the 1950s developed a critique of conservatism, conformity, mass society, and masculinity. In addition, he contends that, while many critics have seen contemporary horror as the production of a break from that of the 1950s, most of the key elements within recent horror films and novels were established during the 1950s. The book contains the following three parts: "Creatures From Beyond: Rationalism and Resistance in the Invasion Narratives"; "The Outsider Narratives"; and "Resituating Psycho: Paranoid Horror and the Crisis of Identity at the End of the Decade "."

It is concluded that the movie is a metaphor for the process of psychotherapy, in which unconscious forces remain dominant if the Ego attempts to deal with them by forceful repression." [PsychInfo]

"Initially seen as a novelty item, 3-D cinema of the 1950s has typically been dismissed as a gimmick by critics and historians. Here, Telotte gives a clear understanding of the historical view of 3-D film, using Paul Virilio's recent work on how the cinema and other modern communication technologies have affected people's sense of reality. In addition, by looking at one of the most famous 3-D films, Jack Arnold's The Creature from the Black Lagoon in terms of Virilio's notion of tele-contact, one might better gauge both the appeal and disturbance of 3-D film."

"The author discusses teen slasher films and how their constructs relate to late-20th century family structures. Adults in these films are either absent or useless, so the teen characters must overcome the supernatural killer on their own. As divorce became more common in the second half of the century, the family unit became weaker. In the slasher films of the late 1980s and 90s, the actions of the parents are what put the children at risk. The survivor characters, the teens who see their friends killed throughout the movie, possess similar traits: they are smart and quick-thinking as well as caring. Several hithorror movies, such as the "Friday the 13th" and "Nightmare on Elm Street" series, are discussed." [IIPA]

"Discusses the role of heroines and hityouth in slasher films of the 1980s, specifically the "Nightmare on Elm Street," "Friday the 13th," and "Hellraiser" franchises. Focuses on the feminist, mental, and social issues that the heroines and monsters represent. Describes the idea of the hitFinal Girl - the lone female who fights and defeats the main villain - as the champion for overcoming oppression of both men and societal authority, while the monsters are horrible killers that stalk and eliminate members of the same twisted societies that created them. Suggests, ultimately, that the characters in slasher films find the boundaries between themselves and the monsters becoming fluid - they confront the wretched or repressed impulses within themselves as the monster emerges, bridging the gap between upstanding society and its unprivileged monsters."

Although scientific and technological progress have been key to Japan's economic success, most Japanese science fiction suggests ambivalence and fear of disaster. These films have progressed from 'secure' disaster scenarios of the 'Godzilla' series to nostalgic views of unavoidable disaster, as in the film 'Nippon chinbotsu,' and finally to nihilistic visions of a grim future in the 1989 film 'Akira.'"

The article provides a historical perspective on how the original film "Gojira" became "Godzilla, King of the Monsters." The story of how Gojira became Godzilla is a tale of two countries and two cheesy movies. This story involves racism, the atomic bombing of Japan and the testing of the hydrogen bombs and the resulting radioactive pollution. The transformation of Gojira to Godzilla is also a tale of the collision of politics, art and commerce. Gojira, released in 1954, was the original kaiju eiga (the Japanese phrase for "monster movie").

Shapiro traces the evolution of Atomic Bomb Cinema in U.S. and Japanese films from the 1950s and '60s. Utilizing the theories of Erik Erikson, John Collins, and Eric Cassell, this essay interprets Atomic Bomb Cinema through the lenses of crisis, apocalypse, and suffering. After contextualizing the films in relation to The Time Machine, the essay analyzes four films, On the Beach, The Incredible Shrinking Man, Mosura tai Gojira, and Ikimono no Kiroku.

"From Godzilla to Train Man -- A Study of the Japanese Self Image in the Context of the West." Asian Profile; Feb2009, Vol. 37 Issue 1, p17, 10p
The article explores the development of self-image among the Japanese people and the depiction of such self-image in the films "Godzilla" and "Train Man." An explanation of George Herbert Mead's theory of self, and its relation to the structure of the Japanese self, is offered. How the Japanese showed their sense of inferiority since the late 19th century is described. According to the author, the sense of inferiority displayed by the Japanese is the factor that associates "Godzilla" with "Train Man." He argues that a detailed analysis of the films will reveal the connection between their characters, specifically their sense of inferiority.

The article examines the construction and erasure of racial difference in films featuring the Creature, particularly "The Creature Walks Among Us" and "Monster on Campus." Similar to King Kong, the Creature is an ethnographic monster whose main purpose is to concretize racial difference. In John Sherwood's "The Creature Walks Among Us," conflicts about race and gender in the first two films are made explicit in many ways that are both problematic and promising. While the film challenges the evolutionary hierarchy of the rape narrative, "Monster on Campus" appears to support it in overstated terms.

"Beyond the forest: Terence Fisher and Transylvania." Studies in European Cinema 3 | Issue: 2 Cover date: November 2006 Page(s): 143-151
"This article considers the ways in which a range of films (made between 1957 and 1974) by British director Terence Fisher represented Europe in general, and Transylvania in particular. Fisher was able to take advantage of laisser-faire managerial conditions at Hammer in the 1950s, and the studio itself profited from the economic and legislative changes in 1950s British cinema. Fisher was able to gain a modicum of control over the scripting and editing processes, and, because he shared the aesthetic approach of his art director Bernard Robinson, was able to make a series of films which had the same visual style and approach to cinematic and geographical space. Fisher's Transylvania films worked by stripping the protagonists' demeanour bare, and by using irony and disavowal as a means of presenting an imaginary country where the audience's national, social and sexual fears could be safely explored."

"The role of Dr. Frank N. Furter in the movie 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' is analogous to that of the Greek god Dionysus in Euripides 'The Bacchae.' The movie is a postmodern, gay version of the play, whose portrayal of Dionysus emphasizes three main attributes of his character. Music for him is chaotic and sensual, he is prone to making grand and commanding entrances, and he dies despite being immortal. The movie infuses the character of Dr. Frank N. Furter with these traits to rebel against the institutions prevailing in its time, simultaneously embracing gay subculture and admitting its instability." [Expanded Academic Index]

"Toward a Sociology of Cult Films: Reading Rocky Horror." The Sociological Quarterly Volume 33 Issue 2 Page 191 - June 1992
UC users only
This article provides a sociological reading of cult films, in particular, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Cult films are secular documents, celebrated as sacred texts by audiences and used as shared foci to collectively create rituals and belief systems. They differ from popular re-releases, fad films, films with cult qualities, and critical cult films in that they involve typical people in atypical situations, sympathetic deviance, challenges to traditional authority, reflections of societal strains, and paradoxical and interpretable resolutions. Examination of the Rocky Horror text and the cult activities that occur during its viewing, reveal it as a paradoxical indictment and validation of traditional societal arrangements.

"Lou Adler's The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) and Stephan Elliott's Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994) share an obsession with the fetish, and both locate the fetish on the desiring body of the male. This essay uses psychoanalytic film theory to explore these renderings of the fetish and argues that the films deploy radically different economies of desire; the fetish in Rocky Horror is grounded in a sadistic masculinity, while in Priscilla, the fetish serves as a referent for a masochistic, even utopian principle of 'being'. However, while the political values that the two films give to the fetish as spectacle are quite different, as are the grounding aesthetics and the space allowed to women, ultimately, both films remain unable to enact a sustained, strategic, and comprehensive resistance to traditional, fixed cinematic renderings of gender for women."

The article the presents the criticism on the 1975 film "The Stepford Wives." It says that the film presents masculine supremacy and other forms of exploitation from crucial elements of technological science. It also mentions that the film shows how metaphors of gendered struggle and violence are dependent on the representations of technological science and explains dystopianism in the context of technological science and gender relations.

Looking back at three films (The Night of the Hunter, House, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), this essay proposes a new way to read horror politically, moving away from allegories of “horrible content” in favor of an attention to the horrors of form and how “secondary” background details assert themselves.
