Author Topic: Euro Horror: Classic European Horror Cinema in Contemporary American Culture  (Read 1587 times)

Another academic study of European horror films has appeared. Pennsylvanian professor Ian Olney has published Euro Horror: Classic European Horror Cinema in Contemporary American Culture through the Indiana University Press.  The book is listed as a 'revised and expanded edition', but I've never heard of it before now.

http://www.amazon.com/Euro-Horror-European-Contemporary-Directions/dp/025300652X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1364443173&sr=1-1&keywords=ian+olney

Amazon has a Kindle edition available for ten bucks, a standard priced paperback, and the usual insane academic pricing for the hardcover.  The Google books preview gives a reasonable idea of what's inside -

I'm glad writers are paying more attention to European horror, but I'm hopeful a worthwhile non-academic study will come along eventually.

Yeah, I know   ;D   Honestly if authors of books like this would just dump the stuffy (and really quite pointless) academic add-ons, I'd find the volumes much more appealing.
