Spanish Horror Film

    By

    This book explores the horror boom since the 1960s. This is the first in-depth study in English of a rich cinematic tradition and its recent revival. It studies issues of production, audience and regulation and highlights the importance of Spanish horror film in the European horror tradition and the global culture of psychotronia. It provides an overview of key directors, cycles and representative films, such as Pan's Labyrinth and Aftermath and includes detailed analysis of the work of directors such as Jesus Franco, Amando de Ossorio, Narciso Ibanez Serrador, Eloy de la Iglesia, Jaume Balaguero, Nacho Cerda and Guillermo del Toro's 'Spanish' films. This is the first critical study on Spanish horror film to be published in English. It is an overview of key directors, cycles and representative films as well as of more obscure and neglected horror production. It also includes a focus on critical and cult contexts of reception in Spain, Great Britain and USA.
