Shocks to the System - Subversive Horror Films

"Shocks to the System is a website dedicated to the ‘subversive’ strain of horror films produced in Britain and America from 1932 to the present day.

The horror cycle flourishes in times of ideological crisis and national trauma - such as the Great Depression, the Cold War, the Vietnam era and post 9/11; Shocks to the System argues that a succession of film-makers working in the field, from James Whale and Tod Browning onwards, have used the horror genre – and the shock value it affords - to challenge dominant ideologies during these times.

Shocks to the System traces a line of thematic development in the films themselves - and in the shared concerns of producers and directors as varied as George Romero, Pete Walker, Michael Reeves, Herman Cohen, Wes Craven and Brian Yuzna - leading to the current cycle of apocalyptic horror films reflecting post 9/11 anxieties and the recent economic recession."
