Review:

'This collection deserves attention from anyone interested in the interrogation and enjoyment of the Hollywood Slasher film. Offering staunch, articulate, and passionate arguments for adopting formalist methodologies in the study and appreciation of the Hollywood Slasher genre, these essays make valuable contributions to existing horror film scholarship, extending the discussion beyond socio-ideological and theoretical perspectives.' Valerie Wee, National University of Singapore

'Style and Form in the Hollywood Slasher Film is a welcome addition to critical works on the genre. Wickham Clayton brings together a very focused set of essays exploring the aesthetics and formal structures of the slasher film. The contributors explore a wide range of slasher films, both the typical examples and the unexpected, pushing at the boundaries of the form. This collection will provide interest and raise challenging questions for readers of all levels, shedding new light on formalist approaches to the genre.' Brigid Cherry, Research Fellow in Screen Media, St Mary's University, Twickenham

'With exciting essays on the slasher subgenre from classic to revisionist films, this timely collection offers a rich vein of enquiry and superb range of scholarship on slasher stylistics. Style and Form in the Hollywood Slasher Film opens up the field of slasher studies for a new generation, challenging dominant theories and offering advanced and innovative perspectives.' Sorcha Ní Fhlainn, Lecturer in Film Studies and American Literature, Manchester Metropolitan University

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 272 pages. While existing work on modern horror tends to focus on a small range of exceptional examples of the genre, and generally finds value in the films through the application of sociopolitical, psychoanalytic, or other theoretical frameworks, the broader trend of the for-profit Hollywood studio produced andor distributed texts and the elements of their construction have been largely ignored. Style and Form in the Hollywood Slasher Film aims to fill this existing gap in scholarship on horror. This book collects essays from a range of academics to consider the place of some of these films within the history of the slasher, how their construction provides a more complex experience than initially conceived, what this can tell us about the genre, and how a study of form can support and aid theoretical analyses. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 9781137496461
