Monsters in the closet: Homosexuality and the Horror Film (Inside Popular Film MUP) - Paperback

ISBN: 0719044731

[SR: 708696], Paperback, [EAN: 9780719044731], Manchester University Press, Manchester University Press, Book, [PU: Manchester University Press], Manchester University Press, One of the few books to address the horror film from any kind of critical position. Unique - The first history of the horror film to approach it from a queer perspective. Written with detail and thoroughness - covers all eras of the horror film and correlates specific types of movie monsters to the historical social conditions which produced them. Explores how popular culture encodes and demonizes queerness within the generic format of the horror film., They are half-human horrors, strange and scary aliens, the seemingly-normal-but-deadly danger that lurks around the corner: Hollywood monsters, or homosexuals? Horror fiction has always portrayed society's greatest fears as monstrous incarnations of "the other," so it should be no surprise that there has always been a clear homoerotic subtext in horror films--from Frankenstein to Interview with the Vampire. Harry M. Benshoff's Monsters in the Closet details how Hollywood monsters have not only been a reflection of homosexuals, but that changes in the horror film have actually mirrored changes in attitudes toward homosexuality in our society. Discussing hundreds of classic (and not so classic) movies, Benshoff provides new insight into horror and science fiction films and into how popular culture presents ideas about homosexuality to a broad audience. , 521000, Performing Arts, 1474, Dance, 11160393011, Individual Directors, 1099186, Magic & Illusion, 271614011, Reference, 2154, Theater, 1, Arts & Photography, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4495, History & Criticism, 4484, Movies, 86, Humor & Entertainment, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 194811011, Theory, 4484, Movies, 86, Humor & Entertainment, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10703, Nonfiction, 10705, Activism, 10710, Bisexuality, 10712, Civil Rights, 10714, Coming Out, 10744, Philosophy, 10746, Sexuality, 292220, Transgender, 301889, Gay & Lesbian, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10207, Criticism & Theory, 10204, History & Criticism, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 16244291, Gay & Lesbian, 11298, Specific Demographics, 11232, Social Sciences, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 491552, Film & Television, 684277011, Performing Arts, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 491460, Gay & Lesbian Studies, 468214, Social Sciences, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books

Monsters in the Closet: Homosexuality and the Horror Film - new book

ISBN: 9780719044731

ID: 978071904473

Monster in the Closetis a history of the horrors film that explores the genre’s relationship to the social and cultural history of homosexuality in America. Drawing on a wide variety of films and primary source materials including censorship files, critical reviews, promotional materials, fanzines, men’s magazines, and popular news weeklies, the book examines the historical figure of the movie monster in relation to various medical, psychological, religious and social models of homosexuality. While recent work within gay and lesbian studies has explored how the genetic tropes of the horror film intersect with popular culture’s understanding of queerness, this is the first book to examine how the concept of the monster queer has evolved from era to era. From the gay and lesbian sensibilities encoded into the form and content of the classical Hollywood horror film, to recent films which play upon AIDS-related fears. Monster in the Closet examines how the horror film started and continues, to demonize (or quite literally “monsterize”) queer sexuality, and what the pleasures and “costs” of such representations might be both for individual spectators and culture at large.
