The Dread of Difference: Gender and the Horror Film
Austin: U of Texas P, orig. Although, as Grant indicates, more recent [End Page ] horror scholarship has turned its attention toward other sites of sociopolitical oppression, such as race and class, repressed sexual energy — and the various heteronormative, patriarchal and familial structures that produce it — has long been an important site of critical attention for scholars of horror. For the contributors of this anthology, the sexual repression that animates the Western and especially Hollywood horror film manifests time and again — in monsters, lesbian vampires, mad scientists and serial killer slashers — as the fear of sexual and gender difference. Regrettably, however, the perennial overreliance on psychoanalysis as the theoretical approach of choice in explicating horror films has had the effect of obscuring many of the sociopolitical tensions that are also palpable in much of Western horror cinema.

More specifically, Get Out offers representations of Black masculinity that push against the stereotypical and reductive ways that Black men have often been depicted in horror cinema. The portrayal of Black men in Get Out takes shape in ways influenced by a range of relationships featured in the film. As such, scrutiny of Get Out yields insight into the construction of Black masculinity in horror film, including how on-screen inter- and intra-racial relations are implicated in this. The writing that follows focuses on how Get Out offers complex and scarcely featured representations of Black masculinity, and boyhood, in horror. As part of such discussion, there is analysis of the entanglements of on-screen gender and racial politics, which contribute to the nuances of depictions of Black masculinity in Get Out. Sobande, F.

Why do we watch and like horror films? This review provides the first synthesis of the empirical literature on the psychology of horror film using multi-disciplinary research from psychology, psychotherapy, communication studies, development studies, clinical psychology, and media studies. A number of limitations in the literature is identified, including the multifarious range of horror stimuli used in studies, disparities in methods, small sample sizes, and a lack of research on cross-cultural differences and similarities. Ideas for future research are explored.
