Phallic Panic (Paperback): Barbara Creed Phallic Panic (Paperback)
Barbara Creed
R751 R654 Discovery Miles 6 540 Save R97 (13%) Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The horror film has always been populated by male monsters, many of which do carry out monstrous acts of violation, rape and castration. The horror film is also filled with male monsters who grow fur, change shape, bleed and give birth. What is it that defines male monstrosity? How does the male monster differ from the female monster? In contrast to the monstrous-feminine, the male monster is almost always defined in close relation to its sexual other, that is, the male monster is a feminised creature linked to woman, nature and the animal. Woman is the prototype, the male monster her impression.

The Monstrous-Feminine - Film, Feminism, Psychoanalysis (Paperback): Barbara Creed The Monstrous-Feminine - Film, Feminism, Psychoanalysis (Paperback)
Barbara Creed
R867 Discovery Miles 8 670 Ships in 10 - 15 working days


In almost all critical writings on the horror film, woman is conceptualised only as victim. In The Monstrous-Feminine Barbara Creed challenges this patriarchal view by arguing that the prototype of all definitions of the monstrous is the female reproductive body.
With close reference to a number of classic horror films including the Alien trilogy, The Exorcist and Psycho, Creed analyses the seven `faces' of the monstrous-feminine: archaic mother, monstrous womb, vampire, witch, possessed body, monstrous mother and castrator. Her argument that man fears woman as castrator, rather than as castrated, questions not only Freudian theories of sexual difference but existing theories of spectatorship and fetishism, providing a provocative re-reading of classical and contemporary film and theoretical texts.

Darwin's Screens - Evolutionary Aesthetics, Time and Sexual Display in the Cinema (Paperback): Barbara Creed Darwin's Screens - Evolutionary Aesthetics, Time and Sexual Display in the Cinema (Paperback)
Barbara Creed
R764 Discovery Miles 7 640 Out of stock

Darwin's Screens addresses a major gap in film scholarship - the key influence of Charles Darwin's theories on the history of the cinema. Much has been written on the effect of other great thinkers such as Freud and Marx but very little on the important role played by Darwinian ideas on the evolution of the newest art form of the twentieth century. Creed argues that Darwinian ideas influenced the evolution of early film genres such as horror, the detective film, science fiction, film noir and the musical. Her study draws on Darwin's theories of sexual selection, deep time and transformation, and on emotions, death, and the meaning of human and animal in order to rethink some of the canonical arguments of film and cinema studies.
