Summary
"Embodiment and Horror Cinema seeks to altogether redefine the concept of "body horror." Taking the four tissue types as its frame of reference, it works to shift emphasis from the contents of the horror film, from its monsters and violence, to the "organicity" of its audiovisual, narrative, and affective registers. The films that each of its eight chapters covers will serve as tutor texts useful to the reader in thinking through the shock, discomfort, and other affective charges that come about when certain organs, fluids, or cell networks assume more of an emphasis than the other elements up there on the screen"--
