Extra info for Christine
Alien is an old-dark house movie set in space; Resident Evil a computer game adaptation that combines gameplay-style cut scenes with conventions of science fiction and horror. 1) that otherwise contains all the signifiers of the postmodern zombie with the grabbing hands of the zombie hoard and besieged heroes with improvised weapons: ‘A Romantic Comedy. With Zombies’. And these films are not at all unusual in their mixing of generic features. In fact, genre hybrids have always been a factor in the evolution and transformation of genres, and John Hill (1998:100) lists generic hybridity as one of the key features of postmodern cinema – so we might expect genre hybrids to be widespread.
In Halloween, the final girl does not ‘kill’ the monster alone: Michael is also shot by Dr Loomis. In Friday the 13th – as viewers of Scream should know, even if prior to this they had made the same mistake as Casey – the killer was the mother of Jason, masquerading as her son who only became the monster in subsequent films. A Nightmare on Elm Street introduces a much stronger supernatural theme into the formula in the shape of a monster who can invade and kill through dreams (rather than stalking his victims in real life).
And since horror itself has a basis in older forms of storytelling such as myth and folklore, it is apparent that horror fiction generally (in whatever medium) might fulfill some necessary psychological or social function, being an essential dimension, for many individuals, of the ‘human condition’. The logical conclusion, then, is that this human need is also key to explaining the genre’s enduring qualities. Despite the fact that horror is variously depicted as trash culture, suitable viewing only for hormone-ridden teens, or as a dangerous social problem inciting viewers to acts of actual violence, filmmakers have continued to be attracted to the genre across the globe and audiences have flocked to their films to be – by choice – scared, grossed out, transfixed, amused and even sexually aroused.
