The importance of horror’s current position in the global film market cannot be overlooked, with both small and large horror releases from across the world enjoying commercial and critical success as never before. Since 2000, the horror genre has undergone a multitude of developments, which have occurred across a range of cultures and types of media. That many of these development are yet to receive a full examination by academic writing is addressed in this exciting and much-needed edited collection. New Blood advances on preceding scholarship to provide an overview of both the established and emerging directions in which the horror genre is moving and, by offering up-to-date frameworks for approaching horror media tied to a series of appropriate case studies, it will prove a valuable addition to the shelves of researchers, students and fans of horror.
