“Screening the Dark Side of Love: From Euro-Horror to American Cinema,” co-edited by Karen A. Ritzenhoff and Karen Randell

“This collection explores the complex relationship between love and sex . . . The essays fully engage the subject, examining films in relationship to violence, performative spectatorship, censorship, race, physical disability, and domestic violence . . . [They] problematize notions of sexuality and ask provocative questions. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty.” – CHOICE

“How can love be understood globally as a problematic transgression rather than the narrative of ‘happy endings’ that Hollywood has offered? The contributors utilize varying methodologies of textual analysis, psychoanalytic models, and cultural critique and engage with a broad range of films to explore issues of gender identity and spectatorship.”  –The Publisher

“Karen Randell is the program leader in Film and Television in the School of Media at Southampton Solent University.”  -The Publisher
