About this item

In the space of contradiction between the local and the intercultural, horror storytelling encourages a shared space that recognizes the human experience along with the cacophony that comes from the jarring effects of cultural differences. Sometimes these differences are the source of anxiety itself. We share horrors, both real and imagined, and while it might seem that horrors would cause us to turn away, they instead have the power to bring us together. For the past fifty years horror film directors from around the world have shared their cinematic nightmares, reaching across boundaries, their work resonating in different cultural contexts.
In this collection of essays, readers will encounter powerful thinking about how this fear is explored among horror filmmakers, horror film viewers, and even horror film scholars. International Horror Film Directors offers a fresh look at a number of cult film directors such as Guillermo del Toro, Lars Von Trier and David Cronenberg, and an introduction to lesser written-about horror directors such as Richard Franklin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Juan López Moctezuma and Alexandre Aja.
