Halloween Issue: Nightmares, Nations and Innovations

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationSpecial issue


In this special edition, articles explore the ways in which the horror genre functions in all its multifarious forms outside of film/TV, to explore the synergies between the horror film and popular culture. By approaching horror away from the screen, we examine the interconnections between the complex forces at work on both sides of the horror equation: the economies of modern entertainment industries and production practice, cultural and political forums, spectators and fans.
