9781137488503: The Revolting Child in Horror Cinema: Youth Rebellion and Queer Spectatorship

The monstrous child is the allegorical queer child in various formations of horror cinema: the child with a secret, the child 'possessed' by Otherness, the changeling child, the terrible gang. This book explores the possibilities of 'not growing up' as a model for a queer praxis that confronts the notion of heternormative maturity.

About the Author:

Andrew Scahill is Lecturer in the Department of English at Georgetown University, USA.

Review:

"Deftly weaving together similar strands of queer theory, childhood studies, and horror film scholarship, Andrew Scahill argues for the queer pleasures and revolutionary potentials inherent in the figure of the monstrous child. His work makes a significant contribution to the growing scholarship on childhood and monstrosity, offering fresh perspectives on iconic bad kids from Rhoda (The Bad Seed) to Regan (The Exorcist). Informed, informative, and fun-to-read, The Revolting Child in Horror Cinema explores why we love to hate our monstrous offspring." - Harry Benshoff, author of Monsters in the Closet: Homosexuality and Horror Film

"Andrew Scahill knows that childhood can be scary. His new book seeks to explain the real terrors of The Exorcist and Village of the Damned by using a convincingly sharp, jargon-free discussion of queer theory that breathes new life into cinematic texts weighed down by past interpretations. Politically vibrant and thoughtfully subversive, The Revolting Child in Horror Cinema is a welcome addition to the growing number of cultural studies on horror." - W. Scott Poole, author of Monsters in America and Vampira

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 240 pages. Drawing together film theory, queer theory, childhood studies, and reception studies, The Revolting Child in Horror Film explores the possibilities of not growing up as a model for a queer praxis that confronts the notion of heternormative maturity. Many horror films are homophobic in their anxiety about nonnormative childhood and yet they provide a space for queer pleasure. The monstrous child is the allegorical queer child in various formations of horror cinema: the child with a secret, the child possessed by Otherness, the changeling child, the terrible gang. As gays and lesbians have been culturally deemed arrested in their maturity, the link between queer and childhood has always been a tacit one. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9781137488503
