Remaking Horror PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Remaking Horror free pdf Remaking Horror chronicles the American horror genre in its development of remake titles from the 1930s to 21st century films. The book investigates Gus Van Sant's 1998 remake of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960) as the watershed moment when the horror genre opened its doors to the possibility of that horror movie--classic, modern, B-movie, and more--might be remade for contemporary audiences. Staple horror franchises--Halloween (1978), Friday the 13th (1980), and A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)--are highlighted along with their remake counterparts in order to illustrate how the genre has embraced a phenomenon of remake productions and what the future of horror holds for American cinema. More than 25 original films, their remakes, and the movies they influenced are presented in detailed discussions throughout the text.
