In a reading of the formal aspects in film imagery in contemporary British films spanning social realist, melodrama and horror genres, Hockenhull demonstrates how the spiritual aspects of landscape and nature mobilise a Neo-Romantic effect. She traces the influence of Romanticism and notions of the Sublime in key British films including 'Sweet Sixteen', 'The Queen', 'Ratcatcher', 'Eden Lake', '28 Days Later', 'My Summer of Love' and 'The Last Great Wilderness'. Operating at the intersection between film theory, art theory and aesthetics, this is a vital contribution which enables a fuller, multidimensional understanding of cinematic experience." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index.

In recent years, this has changed dramatically. The undead are fast and ferocious in 28 Days Later… (2002) and World War Z (2013). In Warm Bodies (2013) and In the Flesh (2013–2015), they are thoughtful, sensitive and capable of empathy. These sometimes radically different depictions of the undead (and the still living) suggest critical inquiries: What does it mean to be human? What makes a monster? Who survives the zombie apocalypse, and why? Focusing on classic and current movies and TV shows, the author reveals how the once-subversive modern zombie, now more popular than ever, has been co-opted by the mainstream culture industry. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 978147666730 Contents: Acknowledgments -- Preface: Dawn of a Zombie Scholar -- Introduction: The Shifting Culture of the Modern Zombie -- 1.
