Product description


By reinstating the repressed mother and femme castratice in classic Freudian theory, and by extending Julia Kristeva's discussion of horror and abjection to fresh critical objects, Barbara Creed accessibly and convincingly demonstrates the relevance and productivity of psychoanalytic theory for cultural analysis.
–Annette Kuhn, University of Glasgow

A substantial contribution to knowledge of the horror film . . . the first study to concentrate specifically on the monstrous-feminine.
–E. Ann Kaplan

Witty, succinct, a pleasure to read. The critique of Freudian theory comprises a total re-conceptualization of the status of the feminine within psychoanalytic debate.
–Sneja Gunew
