The Journal of the Fantastic in the ArtsEach chapter delves deeply into its task of examining the seminal horror films of the period for their conscious and unconscious meanings from a variety of social science perspectives.
Its theme forces the reader to engage in an internal dialogue about what is sacred and profane, titillating or obscene, horrifying or camp. Overtly, the book provides a police interrogation room for viewing the horror film audience while viewing the horror film. Covertly, the book also holds a mirror up to the readers and their own fragile or jaded sensibilities about the origins of 'horroritica' in film.
