Reviews

"A nuanced understanding of the importance of horror to queer audiences, especially with regards to the politics of representation."--Natasha Patterson, Simon Fraser University
One of the most engaging, well-informed analyses of queer representations in North American horror films."--Rob Cover, professor of Digital Communication
"Waldron, a scholar and queer historian, sees the horror genre as a means of catharsis and reclamation for the community, although representation is still marginalized in the medium. The author shows how political and social events helped influence queer depictions on screen. ...This well-researched and thought-provoking analysis will be a welcome addition to film studies collections.--Library Journal
