This critical anthology sets out to explore the boom that horror cinema and TV productions have experienced in Spain in the past two decades. It uses a range of critical and theoretical perspectives to examine a broad variety of films and filmmakers, such as works by Alejandro Amenabar, Alex de la Iglesia, Pedro Almodovar, Guillermo del Toro, Juan Antonio Bayona, and Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza. The volume revolves around a set of fundamental questions: What are the causes for this new Spanish horror-mania? What cultural anxieties and desires, ideological motives and practical interests may be behind such boom? Is there anything specifically "Spanish" about the Spanish horror film and TV productions, any distinctive traits different from Hollywood and other European models that may be associated to the particular political, social, economic or cultural circumstances of contemporary Spain?

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a superb study of contemporary Spanish horror film and TV productions from a transnational framework of analysis." -Jorge Perez, University of Kansas, USA

"Timely and relevant, this book offers sophisticated and lucid readings of contemporary films and television and brilliantly maps the recent `Spanish horror mania' whilst advancing the academic study of Spanish horror in theoretically and historically informed ways. This is an indispensable book for anyone wishing to understand the recent boom in horror in Spanish film and television." -Sarah Wright, Royal Holloway, University of London
