2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By M. K. Madden on August 25, 2006
Format: Paperback
At first I thought this book was going to focus on the psychological thriller genre, but it goes way beyond that. The book is about "psychological science fiction," and it analyzes the ways that movies use psychological ideas in their plots and characters. I found it very easy and enjoyable to read. It's not a text book, nor is it a heavy academic study. It's a light read on a very interesting subject. I think that anyone interested in film - especially film and media studies students - will find this book fascinating. I found the book very useful as a film grad student doing research on horror, thriller, and sci-fi genres. Highly recommended!

More About the Author

William Indick is Professor of Psychology at Dowling College, a small liberal arts college on the banks of the Connetquot River, on the southern shore of eastern Long Island. His latest book, "The Digital God: How Technology will Reshape Spirituality in the Digital Age," will be published by McFarland Publishers in 2015. "The Digital God" explains how spirituality evolved, how it develops in people from infancy through adulthood, how it is hardwired in the brain, and how the influences of digital media may reshape the experience of spirituality in the near future. It's the first book to explore the influence of media on spirituality, and the only book that predicts the impact of the digital environment on our experience of the spiritual world. The title refers to the possible future of spiritual experience, a future in which our perception of God is forged out of a digital interface between our own internal image of the divine, virtual reality technology that produces real perceptions, and neurological devices that stimulate specific areas of the brain that are associated with spiritual perceptions.

Dr. Indick received his bachelors in psychology from New York University in 1993, his masters in music therapy from New York University in 1996, and his Ph.D. in developmental psychology from Cornell University in 2001. Dr. Indick teaches courses, delivers seminars, and writes books in the area of media psychology. If you have any questions about his books or would like to engage him for a seminar, please e-mail him at
