An important contribution to the field, Horror International fills a very real need for scholarly work that reaches beyond American horror and engages international production. The book is particularly strong in its scope-not only gialli, Hong Kong cinema, and Spanish horror, but Thai cinema, Egyptian films, [and] Dutch and Romanian horror are covered here. In addition to providing excellent analyses of individual films, national cinemas, and international trends, the book engages important theoretical debates and discusses the impact of new technology (such as Anchor Bay's excellent DVD series). This will be a great book for classroom use as well as for individual scholarship."--John Hawkins "Indiana University, author of Cutting Edge: Art-Horror and the Horrific Avant-garde " The advantages of this book over its competition are that it includes the greatest number of national cinemas, shows the greatest variety of critical approaches and is the most up to date. The scope of the volume is impressive. The scholarship is uniformly excellent. The editors have done a good job choosing the topics and contributors and editing the selections for style. The essays are of high quality, relatively easy to read. The book would be appropriate as a required text or as supplementary reading in undergraduate or graduate classes on horror cinema or on trends in global cinema. It may also appeal to educated fans of horror.--Journal of Film and Video
