The Wounds of Nations: Horror Cinema , Historical Trauma and National Identity

The Wounds of Nations: Horror Cinema , Historical Trauma and National Identity by Linnie Blake
English | Oct. 15, 2008 | ISBN: 0719075939 | 208 Pages | PDF | 1.53 MB

The Wounds of Nations  explores the ways in which horror films allow international audiences to deal with the horrors of recent history--from genocide to terrorist outrage and nuclear war to radical political change.
Far from being mere escapism or titillation, it shows how horror (whether it be from 1970s America, 1980s Germany, post-Thatcherite Britain or post-9/11 America) is in fact a highly political and potentially therapeutic film genre that enables us to explore, and potentially recover from, the terrors of life in the real world. Exploring a wide range of stylistically distinctive and generically diverse film texts, Blake proffers a radical critique of the nation-state and the ideologies of identity it promulgates, showing that horror cinema can offer us a disturbing, yet perversely life affirming, means of working through the traumatic legacy of recent times.
