Fucking fascinating. Maybe a little too much Freud. Apologies for the dreadful cover showing in your feed.
Carol J. Clover's 'Her Body, Himself: Gender in the Slasher Film' remains one of my faves of the collection, I realize that's my final girl bias showing through.
I think I honestly enjoyed Thomas Doherty's 'Genre, Gender and The Aliens Trilogy' (written back when it was just a trilogy) because those films made such an impression on me. 1/?
⚠️ALL THE WARNINGS. If you're worried about it, there's probably at least a mention in this essay collection, and there are also black and white stills from the films in question. BEWARE. 7h
