Product description


"West may not have intended to write a feminist book about horror films, but in many ways that's exactly what she did.... West is a self-professed devotee of the genre...well-researched... An interesting read for horror fans and cinephiles alike."--Booklist; "West's invaluable insight is educational but rarely dry. Even if you're familiar with every movie profiled in the book, you're likely to look at them in a new light - in addition to learning a few interesting facts"--Broke Horror Fan; "[West] makes a very convincing argument for the re-evaluation of these [films], particularly through a fiminist lens. West shows herself to be an incredibly talented and gifted writer, able to deftly analyze films that were otherwise disrespected and actually make the case stick.... a very, very good, very effective book that should be placed in the pantheon of must own books about horror movies"--Daily Grindhouse; "an interesting chronicle of one of the most overlooked decades of horror cinema.... The book reads like a trip down memory lane, and West never condescends or trash-talks the quality of the lesser entries of the decade.... Fans of this unique period in horror films will surely find a lot to reminisce over and think about from a new perspective in this text"--Horror News Network; "drops many insightful hints to the movies...a wonderful book"--The Horror Times.

About the Author

Alexandra West has written about genre films for The Toronto Star, Rue Morgue Magazine and Offscreen Film Journal. In 2012, she co-founded the Faculty of Horror podcast, exploring the films’ analytical side. She lives in Toronto, Ontario.

2.0 out of 5 stars Reads like a first draft. A rare misstep from McFarland.
