Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 230 pages. Dimensions: 8.6in. x 5.3in. x 0.6in.Misfit Sisters assesses female characterization in recent screen horror, examining how a female rite of passage can be seen to operate in such texts as Scream, The Craft, Ginger Snaps and The Ring. Drawing parallels with folk tales it evaluates the trials female protagonists undergo in their journey to womanhood, arguing that the focus given to female characters and experiences, the powers they are given, and the ways in which they are tested demand that the genre be critically re-appraised.
