Recreational Terror
Recreational Terror (July 1997)
Women and the Pleasures of Horror Film Viewing
Isabel Cristina Pinedo - Author

Challenges the conventional wisdom that violent horror films can only degrade women and incite violence.

"This book makes an important contribution to the study of the horror film, a field loaded with articles and texts but without the clear direction given it in Pinedo's fine study. Pinedo has seen some 600 films, and the wealth of this experience is reflected in the book. She makes distinctions that are neither obvious...(Read More)

Suren Lalvani - Author

It Looks At You
It Looks At You (January 1995)

This is a study of the "returned gaze" from the cinema screen, demonstrating that the films that we watch watch us, guide us, control our gaze, and enforce societal codes.

This book is a study of one of the most insidious and pervasive phenomena in th...(Read More)
 
 
Hauntings
Hauntings (December 1994)
Popular Film and American Culture 1990-1992
Joseph Natoli - Author

This book is about the way that popular film brings to a "sayable" level that which haunts us in the media headlines.

It uses contemporary films to comment upon broader social issues: violence, homophobia, sexual abuse, television, capitalism, class, marriage, ecology, democracy, greed, subcultures, and the list could go on. The fears of America--the hauntings by the Ro...(Read More)

Re-Viewing British Cinema, 1900-1992
Re-Viewing British Cinema, 1900-1992 (July 1994)
Essays and Interviews
Wheeler Winston Dixon - Editor

"Rarely have I read an anthology in which all of the essays are so uniformly excellent, especially so consistently well written. Indeed, many of the essays read as if they spring from the same voice--an important part of the pleasure of this work. There has been a veritable boom in the U.S. and Britain recently of scholarship on the British cinema; this work will take its place at the top of this growing list." -- David Desser, University of Illinoi...(Read More)
 
 
Schooling in the Light of Popular Culture
Schooling in the Light of Popular Culture (June 1994)
Paul Farber - Editor
Eugene F. Provenzo Jr. - Editor
