In diesem umfangreichenWerk gibt Georg Seeßlen einen umfassenden Überblick über das Genre des Horrorfilms. Dabei beschränkt sich seine Untersuchung keineswegs nur auf den klassischen Horrorfilm, sondern schließt auch dessen Vorläufer, den phantastischen Film als ihm verwandtes Genre mit ein. Gewalt und Angst kommen seit jeher gesellschaftliche und psychologische Funktionen zu, die sich auch die unterhaltenden Medien wie Literatur und Film zu Nutze machen. Woher aber kommt die Lust an dieser Angst? Seeßlen beschäftigt sich eingehend mit dem Phänomen Horror als Unterhaltungssujet und tut dies unter Einbeziehung unterschiedlicher Gesichtspunkte. Ausgehend von den literarischen Wurzeln der Gothic Novels im 19. Jahrhundert erläutert Seeßlen einige Angstmuster und deren mediale Umsetzung in Muster der Angsterzeugung. Desweiteren ergeben sich in diesem Licht wiederkehrende Figuren, Gegenstände und Handlungsorte, die genretypisch sind und fast schon ikonenhafte Züge tragen: Vampire und Wiedergänger, die Burg des Schreckens oder Blut sind nur einige davon. Das Werk bietet zudem einen umfangreichen chronologischen Abriss der Geschichte des Horrorfilms, beginnend beim frühen deutschen phantastischen Stummfilm der 10er und 20er Jahre und dem klassischen Horrorfilm Hollywoods, über die ab Mitte des Jahrhunderts immer drastischer werdenden Monster-, Zombie- und Teenage-Horrorfilmen hin zu den Trash-, Gore- und Splatterfilmen, die sich ab den 70-er Jahren im Wesentlichen nur noch auf das genaue Zeigen blutiger Gewalt und wahrer Schlachtszenen spezialisieren. Darüber hinaus gibt "Der Horrorfilm" einen motivischen Querschnitt durch das Horror-Genre, der unter anderem wiederkehrende Themen wie Teufel und Dämonen, Tiere als Akteure des Terrors oder die Familie als Ort des Schreckens untersucht. Anhand vieler Filmbeispiele verfolgt Seeßlen die Zyklen und Wellen des Horror-Genres bis zur Jahrtausendwende.

The Routledge Companion to World Cinema explores and examines a global range of films and filmmakers, their movements and audiences, comparing their cultural, technological and political dynamics, identifying the impulses that constantly reshape the form and function of the cinemas of the world. Each of the forty chapters provides a survey of a topic, explaining why the issue or area is important, and critically discussing the leading views in the area. Designed as a dynamic forum for forty-three world-leading scholars, this companion contains significant expertise and insight and is dedicated to challenging complacent views of hegemonic film cultures and replacing outmoded ideas about production, distribution and reception. It offers both a survey and an investigation into the condition and activity of contemporary filmmaking worldwide, often challenging long-standing categories and weighted—often politically motivated—value judgements, thereby grounding and aligning the reader in an activity of remapping which is designed to prompt rethinking.

Any on-screen schmuck can take down a wolfman with a silver bullet. It takes a certain kind of hero to hoist that wolfman overhead into an airplane spin, follow with a body slam, drop an atomic elbow across his mangy neck, leg-lock him until he howls, and pin his furry back to the mat for a three-count. It takes a Mexican masked wrestler. Add a few half-naked vampire women, Aztec mummies, mad scientists, evil midgets from space, and a goateed Frankenstein monster, and you have just some of the elements of Mexican masked wrestler and monster movies, certainly among the most bizarre, surreal and imaginative films ever produced. This filmography features some of the oddest cinematic showdowns ever concocted--Mexican masked wrestlers battling monsters, evil geniuses and other ne'er-do-wells, be it in caves, cobwebbed castles or in the ring. From the 1950s to the 1970s, these movies were staples of Mexican cinema, combining action, horror, sex, science fiction and comedy into a bizarre amalgam aimed to please the whole family. Chapters examine the roots of the phenomenon, including the hugely popular masked wrestling scene and the classic Universal horror films from which Mexican filmmakers stole without compunction. Subsequent chapters focus on El Santo, Blue Demon, and Mil Mascaras, the three most prominent masked wrestlers; wrestling women; other less prominent masked wrestlers; and the insane mish-mash of monsters pitted against the heroes. Each chapter includes background information and a full filmography, and a wide assortment of striking illustrations--posters, lobby cards and other graphic material, some better than the movies they advertised--accompany the text.

As the horror subgenre du jour, found footage horror's amateur filmmaking look has made it available to a range of budgets. Surviving by adapting to technological and cultural shifts and popular trends, found footage horror is a successful and surprisingly complex experiment in blurring the lines between quotidian reality and horror's dark and tantalizing fantasies. Found Footage Horror Films explores the subgenre's stylistic, historical and thematic development. It examines the diverse prehistory beyond Man Bites Dog (1992) and Cannibal Holocaust (1980), paying attention to the safety films of the 1960s, the snuff-fictions of the 1970s, and to television reality horror hoaxes and mockumentaries during the 1980s and 1990s in particular. It underscores the importance of The Blair Witch Project (1999) and Paranormal Activity (2007), and considers YouTube's popular rise in sparking the subgenre's recent renaissance.

The Historical Dictionary of Middle Eastern Cinema covers the production and exhibition of cinema in the Middle East and in communities whose heritage is from the region and whose films commonly reflect this background. It covers the cinemas of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen. In addition, it includes the non-Arab states of Turkey and Iran, as well as the Jewish state of Israel. To a substantial degree, cinema has served to define the character of the peoples and nations of the Middle East. With that in mind, the content and arrangement of entries in this volume works to introduce and emphasize both the national and transnational character of Middle Eastern cinema, which includes not only its indigenous but its colonial aspects as well, both external and internal to the geographical regions themselves. This is done through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and over 500 cross-referenced dictionary entries on individual films, filmmakers, and actors. It also covers the range of cinematic modes, from documentary to fiction, representational to animation, generic to experimental, mainstream to avant-garde, and entertainment to propaganda.
