Abject Terrors

Surveying the Modern and Postmodern Horror Film

Tony Magistrale

Abject Terrors is an expansive study of the most significant films from the prolific horror genre – from its origins in the 1920s and 1930s, to its contemporary representations. This survey brings together close analyses of individual motion pictures, demonstrating the interconnections among these filmic texts and their contribution to defining quintessential aspects of the modern and postmodern horror film.
