Summary
"This revised edition of Dark Dreams explores the evolution of the modern horror film. It divides horror into three varieties (psychological, demonic and apocalyptic) and demonstrates how horror cinema represents popular expression of everyday fears while revealing the forces that influence American values. Directors given a close reading include Hitchcock, De Palma, Cronenberg, Del Toro, Haneke, and Polanski"--Provided by publisher
