Monstrous Children and Childish Monsters: Essays on Cinema's Holy Terrors

Edited by Markus P.J. Bohlmann and Sean Moreland



278 pages



Monster-Children have long held the attention of viewers, perhaps because of the juxtaposition between their child-like innocence and their childish mischievousness. This book contains a collection of essays that critically examine representations of monstrous children in popular cinema since the 1950s. Articles cover topics such as the villainization of infertile women in horror films, unexpected evil in Rosemary's Baby, adoption in The Turn of the Screw, and mutant child seers in contemporary Spanish horror film.
