Download or read The Most Dangerous Cinema PDF, written by Bryan Senn and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2013-11-01 with total page 296 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: People hunting people for sport—an idea both shocking and fascinating. In 1924 Richard Connell published a short story that introduced this concept to the world, where it has remained ever since—as evidenced by the many big- and small-screen adaptations and inspirations. Since its publication, Connell’s award-winning “The Most Dangerous Game” has been continuously anthologized and studied in classrooms throughout America. Raising questions about the nature of violence and cruelty, and the ethics of hunting for sport, the thrilling story spawned a new cinematic subgenre, beginning with RKO’s 1932 production of The Most Dangerous Game, and continuing right up to today. This book examines in-depth all the cinematic adaptations of the iconic short story. Each film chapter has a synopsis, a “How Dangerous Is It?” critique, an overall analysis, a production history, and credits. Five additional chapters address direct to video, television, game shows, and almost “dangerous” productions. Photographs, extensive notes, bibliography and index are included.

Book The Turn to Gruesomeness in American Horror Films  1931 1936

Download or read The Turn to Gruesomeness in American Horror Films 1931 1936 PDF, written by Jon Towlson and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2016-09-13 with total page 241 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Critics have traditionally characterized classic horror by its use of shadow and suggestion. Yet the graphic nature of early 1930s films only came to light in the home video/DVD era. Along with gangster movies and "sex pictures," horror films drew audiences during the Great Depression with sensational content. Exploiting a loophole in the Hays Code, which made no provision for on-screen "gruesomeness," studios produced remarkably explicit films that were recut when the Code was more rigidly enforced from 1934. This led to a modern misperception that classic horror was intended to be safe and reassuring to audiences. The author examines the 1931 to 1936 "happy ending" horror in relation to industry practices and censorship. Early works like Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932) and The Raven (1935) may be more akin to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) and Hostel (2005) than many critics believe.
