I've just had word from Edinburgh University Press that my manuscript has just received a positive peer review and will be going into production imminently. I am so excited! My expected date of publication is November this year. Contemporary British Horror Cinem: Industry, Genre and Society offers a scholarly overview of UK horror film production since the year 2000, analysing the cultural and economic context of the genre's revival in close detail. Drawing on significant industrial practices, writers, directors and filmic trends, the book analyses issues of production and representation in relation to some of the most popular and obscure films. Combining industrial research and primary interview material with detailed textual analysis, the book aims to look beyond the dominant paradigms which have explained away British horror in the past, and sheds light on one of the most dynamic and distinctive, yet scarcely talked about, areas of contemporary British film production. The book considers high profile theatrical releases, as well as direct-to-DVD and self-distributed movies, to give as full a picture as possible of British horror film production in the twenty-first century.
