Write The First Customer Review

This collection of essays critically interrogates contemporary visualizations of the Gothic and the monstrous in film and media. The ongoing fascination with evil, as simultaneously repellant and irresistibly attractive in the Hollywood film, criminological case studies, popular culture, and even public policy, points to the emergence of "Gothic criminology," with its focus on themes such as blood lust, compulsion, godlike vengeance, and power and determination.
