Editorial Reviews


"An informative yet entertaining look into one of the most popular forms of global culture, the American Horror Film...Dr. Kooyman looks at the filmmaking environment and through his top-notch research logically lays out his conclusions on how some of the most popular and culturally significant directors negotiate authorial identities within the global environment." (Professor Danny Shipka, Oklahoma State University) "After decades of subsistence in the margins of academic scholarship, horror film criticism has made its way into the mainstream...As the field gets more crowded, original critical approaches to horror cinema are becoming harder to find... Ben Kooyman has found such an original angle - an angle that should satisfy the larger community of horror film fans as much as an academic audience... (Associate Professor Steffen Hantke, Sogang University) "This book investigates contemporary horror film directors as artisans whose "self-fashioning" practices at once continue a tradition of the artist/author as "product/producer," and engage complex philosophical inquiries constellating about issues of identity formation and performance." (Professor Jay McRoy, Department of English and Cinema Studies, University of Wisconsin- Parkside)"
