Abstract / Summary

The cinema of the occult celebrates the irrational and the magical, and it offers powerful and seductive narratives of desire, transgression, and fantasy. In this challenging, fresh, and wide-ranging approach to the themes of witchcraft, paganism, possession, and voodoo, Tanya Krzywinska explores the thrills of terror, ecstasy, and power offered by cinema's unholy romance with magic and demonic forces. She offers close textual studies of films from diverse genres, including The Devils, Lost Highway, Angel Heart, The Wicker Man, Black Narcissus, White Zombie, Twin Peaks, Videodrome, and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, as well as the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
