Drawing on a wide variety of Hollywood and other examples, this impressive group of contributors considers a wide range of film adaptations, remakes and fan productions from various industrial, textual and critical perspectives. Their case studies discuss new versions of popular texts such as The Manchurian Candidate, Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Stepford Wives. They provide new perspectives on the unlimited cultural production of classics like The Wizard of Oz, Wuthering Heights and The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, and they analyze the groundbreaking work of fan appropriations, including Batman and Spiderman fanvids, and fanfic trailer revisions for The Shining and television's The Adventures of Merlin." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index; Tertiary/Undergraduate, Postgraduate ISBN: 9781137263346 Contents: -- list of illustrations -- acknowledgments -- notes on contributors -- introduction: remake,remodel / Kathleen Loock and Constantine Verevis -- pt.
