Contemporary British Horror Cinema: Industry, Genre and Society charts the rebirth of the British horror film in the twenty-first century, paying close attention to both the cultural and economic factors that contributed to the horror genre’s buoyancy amid UK film production. Using primary research – including data from funding institutions and primary interview material with key industry players – and detailed film analysis, this book will show in what ways horror offered a significant contribution to British film production post-2000, and how it evidenced diversity across a broad spectrum of filmmakers, industrial trends, technologies and social issues.
