The Horror Film

Horror Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Horror Film by Stephen Prince Book Resume:

In this volume, Stephen Prince has collected essays reviewing the history of the horror film and the psychological reasons for its persistent appeal, as well as discussions of the developmental responses of young adult viewers and children to the genre. The book focuses on recent postmodern examples such as The Blair Witch Project. In a daring move, the volume also examines Holocaust films in relation to horror. Part One features essays on the silent and classical Hollywood eras. Part Two covers the postWorld War II era and discusses the historical, aesthetic, and psychological characteristics of contemporary horror films. In contrast to horror during the classical Hollywood period, contemporary horror features more graphic and prolonged visualizations of disturbing and horrific imagery, as well as other distinguishing characteristics. Princes introduction provides an overview of the genre, contextualizing the readings that follow. Stephen Prince is professor of communications at Virginia Tech. He has written many film books, including Classical Film Violence: Designing and Regulating Brutality in Hollywood Cinema, 19301968, and has edited Screening Violence, also in the Depth of Field Series.

Dixie Horror Palace

Horror Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Dixie Horror Palace by Gérard Dôle Book Resume:

Le mythe du vampire au féminin Dixie Horror Palace renoue avec la tradition victorienne de la femme vampire et propose une nouvelle détective des Ténèbres, Arabella Kenealy. Cette jeune femme médecin, féministe avouée, est bien décidée à faire ses armes parmi les enquêteurs chevronnés de la police criminelle londonienne. L’excentrique Lord Syfret l'a chaudement recommandée à Sir John Fox, chef de Scotland Yard, qui après hésitation décide de lui accorder sa confiance. Dans la première aventure, « Dixie Horror Palace », Miss Arabella se lance sur la piste des Rôdeuses du crépuscule auxquelles l’on prête les pires intentions. L’impitoyable traque conduit la nouvelle détective des ruelles sordides de l’East End aux rives du Loch Ness où le surnaturel l’attend de pied ferme. Sous un ciel de plomb, la lande infinie devient le fantastique théâtre d’un affrontement sans précédent. Arabella Kenealy devra élucider le mystère de la maison hantée qui sanglote, et celui de la créature ailée égorgeant des promeneuses solitaires. Elle revient ensuite dans une seconde enquête tout aussi extraordinaire où « La Vampire de cire » menace Londres. Le lecteur trouvera en complément « L’Enfant hanté » (« The Haunted Child », 1896), une aventure de Lord Syfret par Arabella Kenealy (1859-1938), inédite en français, ainsi qu’un historique des femmes vampires par François Ducos. Gérard Dôle nous présente un roman qui reprend la tradition du vampire sous forme d’enquêtes. EXTRAIT Le crépuscule s’avançait, inquiétant, indistinct. Des massifs violâtres fermaient l’horizon, et, à cette heure tardive, derrière leurs silhouettes fuligineuses, un soleil couchant à demi éteint n’éclairait plus que les hauteurs confuses de Hampstead. L’austère coupole de Saint-Paul gonflait son dôme sombre. Un remorqueur siffla tristement sur la Tamise. C’était vraiment un personnage excentrique que Lord Syfret, l’un des plus dignes mais aussi l’un des plus singuliers membres de la gentry britannique. Son extravagance ne se révélait toutefois pas immédiatement, tant elle était parée d’un épais vernis mondain. Au physique, il avait le teint pâle, les cheveux gris, les yeux bleu-vert, les sourcils très accusés, le nez romain. Sa moustache et sa barbiche, de la même teinte que sa chevelure, cachaient une bouche dont les lèvres minces couvraient des dents aiguës. Sa mise était élégante : il portait invariablement un habit noir de la plus belle étoffe, un pantalon étroit de même nuance, et un gilet mauve à fleurs d’or brochant sur le tout. Lord Syfret vivait de façon solitaire dans une grande demeure du Victoria Embankment, sise en amont de Hungerford Bridge, à trois pas de l’Aiguille de Cléopâtre. À quoi s’y occupait-il ? Seule Mrs Hogskin, sa gouvernante, eût su le dire, mais elle gardait les lèvres scellées quand on la questionnait sur son maître. A PROPOS DE L’AUTEUR Gérard Dôle est à la fois journaliste, historien, musicien, chanteur, auteur-compositeur et, bien entendu, écrivain. En 1967, il s’essaie à la chanson à texte dans des cabarets de la Rive gauche tels que L’École Buissonnière de René-Louis Laforgue, L’Écluse ou L’Échelle de Jacob. Il passe même à Bobino en 1968, en première partie du récital de Catherine Sauvage et de Guy Béart. Retenons une série de disques qui font de lui un spécialiste de la musique acadienne de Louisiane et un grand amoureux des orgues de Barbarie, mêlant parfois musique et littérature populaire comme dans La Chanson de Nestor Burma (1982) en collaboration avec Tardi et Léo Malet, et La Complainte de Harry Dickson (1984). Gérard Dôle est aussi l’auteur d’une étude savante sur L’Histoire musicale des Acadiens (L’Harmattan, Paris, 1995), et de nombreuses nouvelles fantastiques publiées tant en France qu’aux États-Unis.

The Horror Film

Horror Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Horror Film by Peter Hutchings Book Resume:

The Horror Film is an in-depth exploration of one of the most consistently popular, but also most disreputable, of all the mainstream film genres. Since the early 1930s there has never been a time when horror films were not being produced in substantial numbers somewhere in the world and never a time when they were not being criticised, censored or banned. The Horror Film engages with the key issues raised by this most contentious of genres. It considers the reasons for horror's disreputability and seeks to explain why despite this horror has been so successful. Where precisely does the appeal of horror lie? An extended introductory chapter identifies what it is about horror that makes the genre so difficult to define. The chapter then maps out the historical development of the horror genre, paying particular attention to the international breadth and variety of horror production, with reference to films made in the United States, Britain, Italy, Spain and elsewhere. Subsequent chapters explore: The role of monsters, focusing on the vampire and the serial killer. The usefulness (and limitations) of psychological approaches to horror. The horror audience: what kind of people like horror (and what do other people think of them)? Gender, race and class in horror: how do horror films such as Bride of Frankenstein, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Blade relate to the social and political realities within which they are produced? Sound and horror: in what ways has sound contributed to the development of horror? Performance in horror: how have performers conveyed fear and terror throughout horror's history? 1970s horror: was this the golden age of horror production? Slashers and post-slashers: from Halloween to Scream and beyond. The Horror Film throws new light on some well-known horror films but also introduces the reader to examples of noteworthy but more obscure horror work. A final section provides a guide to further reading and an extensive bibliography. Accessibly written, The Horror Film is a lively and informative account of the genre that will appeal to students of cinema, film teachers and researchers, and horror lovers everywhere.

Horror at the Drive-in

Horror Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Horror at the Drive-in by Gary Don Rhodes Book Resume:

Drive-in movie theaters and the horror films shown at them during the 1950s, 60s, and early 70s may be somewhat outdated, but they continue to enthrall movie buffs today. More than just fodder for the satirical cannons of Joe Bob Briggs and Mystery Science Theatre 3000, they appeal to knowledgeable fans and film scholars who understand their influence on American popular culture. This book is a collection of eighteen essays by various scholars on the classic drive-in horror film experience. Those in Section One emphasize the roles of the drive-in theater in the United States--and its cultural cousin, Australia. Section Two examines how horror operated at the drive-in, the rhetoric used in coming attraction trailers, horror film premieres at drive-ins, double features, and the preproduction, production, and marketing of Last House on the Left. Section Three addresses the effects of the Vietnam War and counter-culture on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and the Cold War on Cat Women of the Moon. Section Four explores gender issues and sexuality, two of the most common and most important subjects of horror film analysis. Section Five covers drive-in culture via Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte, 2000 Maniacs, and the films of Mario Bava. Section Six investigates a variety of issues, such as the drive-in horror film's embrace of DNA, the use of cinematic form to create a non-Hollywood look in Wizard of Gore, and the many different prints and running times of I Drink Your Blood.
