9780745312026: Trash Aesthetics: Popular Culture and Its Audience (Film/Fiction)

Patterns of production and consumption are one of the foundation stones of media studies in the 1990s. Taking the audience as its starting point, this collection of essays focuses on aspects of audience response, interaction and manipulation in a diverse range of films, from "high culture" literary adaptations ("The Scarlet Letter", "Pride and Prejudice" and "Schindler's List") to comic book adaptations ("Tank Girl", "Judge Dredd") and genre horror movies such as "The Shining" and "Nightmare on Elm Street.". A concluding essay explores the differences and the similarities between adaptations of "high" and "low" cultural forms in a mass film media.
