Women occupy a privileged place in horror film. Horror is a space of entertainment and excitement, of terror and dread, and one that relishes the complexities that arise when boundaries – of taste, of bodies, of reason – are blurred and dismantled. It is also a site of expression and exploration that leverages the narrative and aesthetic horrors of the reproductive, the maternal and the sexual to expose the underpinnings of the social, political and philosophical othering of women. This book offers an in-depth analysis of women in horror films through an exploration of ‘gynaehorror’: films concerned with all aspects of female reproductive horror, from reproductive and sexual organs, to virginity, pregnancy, birth, motherhood and finally to menopause. Some of the themes explored include: the intersection of horror, monstrosity and sexual difference; the relationships between normative female (hetero)sexuality and the twin figures of the chaste virgin and the voracious vagina dentata; embodiment and subjectivity in horror films about pregnancy and abortion; reproductive technologies, monstrosity and ‘mad science’; the discursive construction and interrogation of monstrous motherhood; and the relationships between menopause, menstruation, hagsploitation and ‘abject barren’ bodies in horror. The book not only offers a feminist interrogation of gynaehorror, but also a counter-reading of the gynaehorrific, that both accounts for and opens up new spaces of productive, radical and subversive monstrosity within a mode of representation and expression that has often been accused of being misogynistic. It therefore makes a unique contribution to the study of women in horror film specifically, while also providing new insights in the broader area of popular culture, gender and film philosophy.

From the vengeful ghosts of J-horror to the walking dead in 28 Days and World War Z, from the creepiness of Spain's haunted houses to the graphic gore of the New French Extremism, horror is everywhere in the twenty-first century. This lively and illuminating book explores over 100 contemporary horror films, providing insightful and provocative readings of what they mean while including numerous quotes from their creators. Some of these films, including The Babadook, The Green Inferno, It Follows, The Neon Demon, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, The Witch, are so recent that this will be one of the first times they are discussed in book form. The book is divided into three main sections: 'nightmares', 'nations' and 'innovations'. 'Nightmares' looks at new manifestations of traditional fears, including creepy dolls, haunted houses and demonic possession as well as vampires, werewolves, witches and zombies; and also considers more contemporary anxieties such as dread of home invasion and homophobia. 'Nations' explores fright films from around the world, including Australia, Canada, Czechoslovakia, France, Germany, India, Japan, Norway, Russia, Serbia, Spain and Sweden as well as the UK and the US. 'Innovations' focuses on the latest trends in terror from 3D to found-footage films, from Twilight teen romance to torture porn, and from body horror and eco-horror to techno-horror. Parodies, remakes and American adaptations of Asian horror are also discussed.

From the cheaply made "tax-shelter" films of the 1970s to the latest wave of contemporary "eco-horror," Canadian horror cinema has rarely received much critical attention. Gina Freitag and Andr� Loiselle rectify that situation in The Canadian Horror Film with a series of thought-provoking reflections on Canada's "terror of the soul," a wasteland of docile damnation and prosaic pestilence where savage beasts and mad scientists rub elbows with pasty suburbanites, grumpy seamen, and baby-faced porn stars. Featuring chapters on Pontypool, Ginger Snaps, 1970s slasher films, Quebec horror, and the work of David Cronenberg, among many others, The Canadian Horror Film unearths the terrors hidden in the recesses of the Canadian psyche. It examines the highlights of more than a century of Canadian horror filmmaking and includes an extensive filmography to guide both scholars and enthusiasts alike through this treacherous terrain.

There is no denying that Meir Zarchi’s I Spit On Your Grave (1978) deserves its title as one of the most controversial films ever made. While many condemn it as misogynistic, others praise it for raising uncomfortable issues about sexual violence. While its reputation as a cult film has undoubtedly been cemented by its unique position in the 1970s/80s exploitation era and the "video nasties" scandal, it has also become mythologized by its own official and unofficial franchises. David Maguire examines why the film still continues to provoke fierce debate forty years on, investigating not just the historical, social, and political landscape into which the film was first released—and condemned—but also examining how it is has inadvertently become ground zero for the rape-revenge genre due to its countless imitators. The book explores how academic study has reevaluated the film’s importance as a cultural statement on gender, the conflicting readings that it throws up, the timeless appeal of its story as examined through folklore and mythology, and its updating to reflect contemporary issues in a post-9/11 world of vengeance and retaliation.

Wissenschaftlicher Aufsatz aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Medienpädagogik, Note: 1,7, Technische Universität Chemnitz (Pädagogik des E-Learning und der Neuen Meidien), Veranstaltung: Instruktionspsychologische Aspekte des E-Learning, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In vielen Situationen des Alltags sowie des Arbeitslebens müssen Menschen mit verschiedensten Medien interagieren, um für sie relevante Informationen erhalten und somit ihre jeweiligen Ziele erreichen zu können. Dabei kann es vor allem in Situationen, in welchen die Aneignung von neuem Wissen notwendig ist, hilfreich sein, wenn dabei die durch das verwendete Medium vermittelten Inhalte an die kognitive Architektur und damit an die mentalen Ressourcen des Lernenden angepasst werden. Die Betrachtung verschiedener Anwendungsbereiche zeigt, dass die Berücksichtigung der vorhandenen kognitiven Ressourcen vor allem bei der Entwicklung von multimedialen Lernumgebungen, nicht nur hilfreich, sondern von enormer Bedeutung für die Wissensvermittlung ist. Aufgrund dieser Bedeutung für die Optimierung von Lernprozessen gab und gibt es nach wie vor starke Bestrebungen, Mittel und Wege zu finden, um die kognitive Belastung während des Lernens zuverlässig und präzise vorhersagen zu können.

Clark Ashton Smith (1893-1961) ist H. P. Lovecrafts vergessener literarischer Gefährte aus den Tagen des Weird Tales Magazine. Seine Dark Fantasy ist von halluzinatorischer Intensität. Viele Fans halten C. A. Smiths Werk sogar für bedeutsamer als das von H. P. Lovecraft. Im Festa Verlag erscheinen die gesammelten Erzählungen von Clark Ashton Smith in sechs Bänden. Geordnet nach Zyklen, jeder Zyklus mit einer Einführung des amerikanischen Fantastikexperten Will Murray. Dazu weitere Texte über Smiths Leben und Werk. Circa 120 Geschichten in neuer Übersetzung - von den ersten Schreibanfängen 1910 bis zur letzten zu Lebzeiten veröffentlichten Story 1958. Mehr als 60 deutsche Erstveröffentlichungen. Jeder Band Hardcover, Leseband, Schutzumschlag in der Festa Lederoptik, je circa 25 Erzählungen, je etwa 400 Seiten. Band 1: Die Stadt der Singenden Flamme Band 2: Die Grabgewölbe von Yoh-Vombis Band 3: Das Labyrinth des Maal Dweb Band 4: Die Bestie von Averoigne Band 5: Die Totenbeschwörer von Naat Band 6: Der doppelte Schatten Clark Ashton Smith (1893 - 1961) war einer der großen Meister der amerikanischen Horror- und Dark Fantasy-Literatur. H. P. Lovecraft schrieb über sein Vorbild und engen Freund: 'Was echte dämonische Ausstrahlung und Ideenreichtum anbelangt, wird Mr. Smith von keinem lebenden oder toten Schriftsteller übertroffen.' Und das ist bis heute so geblieben; Smiths bizarrre Geschichten sind von halluzinatorischer Intensität. Ray Bradbury: 'Unglaubliche Welten, unwahrscheinlich liebliche Städte und noch weitaus fantastischere Lebewesen ... Man schreite über die Schwelle seiner Erzählungen, und man stützt in Farbe, Laute, Geschmack, Geruch und Textur: in die Sprache.'
