Critical Approaches to the Horror-Comedy Film - Chapters Sought

Tuesday, April 30, 2019

With a cinematic legacy that traces back to the silent film era, the horror-comedy hybrid is a cornerstone of American filmmaking and yet, it is a particularly difficult sub-genre to pin down. By representing what Noël Carroll referred to as opposite sides of the same coin, horror and humor tap into similar aspects of cultural dread in order to create in audiences the specific physiological experiences of fear and laughter, respectively. Horror-comedy films speak to our emotional connection to film and yet, there is limited critical analysis devoted to this sub-genre. This edited collection is our answer to that oversight.
