It is enjoyed by audiences everywhere, but also seen as a malign influence by others. In thi Horror cinema is a hugely successful, but at the same time culturally illicit genre that spans the history of cinema. It continues to flourish with recent cycles of supernatural horror and torture porn that span the full range of horror styles and aesthetics. It is enjoyed by audiences everywhere, but also seen as a malign influence by others. In this Routledge Film Guidebook, audience researcher and film scholar Brigid Cherry provides a comprehensive overview of the horror film and explores how the genre works. Examining the way horror films create images of gore and the uncanny through film technology and effects, Cherry provides an account of the way cinematic and stylistic devices create responses of terror and disgust in the viewer. Horror examines the way these films construct psychological and cognitive responses and how they speak to audiences on an intimate personal level, addressing their innermost fears and desires. Cherry further explores the role of horror cinema in society and culture, looking at how it represents various identity groups and engages with social anxieties, and examining the way horror sees, and is seen by, society.

    I'm a little surprised by the low ratings for this book. It's a scholarly overview of the horror genre written in a clear and interesting manner. It may be too technical for many but if you are looking for a well-written critical review, this is for you.

    An exceptional book - one which successfully balances commentary on various aspects of horror films, from their history, to their creators' artistry, to what critics and theorists suggest about their meaning. What's more, Cherry achieves this in an engaging, succinct fashion. The book reads well and moves quickly, using plenty of examples. Anyone interested in reading a top notch, scholarly but approachable book on the horror film genre should place this volume at the top of their list.

    Fascinating. I was a bit lost in the psychoanalytic section but it's not the author's fault.
