Kurzbeschreibung

Gender and Sexuality in Latin American Horror Cinema explores the different mechanisms and strategies through which horror
films attempt to reinforce or contest gender relations and issues of sexual
identity in the continent. The book explores issues of machismo, marianismo,
homosociality, bromance, among others through the lens of horror narratives
and, especially, it offers an analysis of monstrosity and the figure of the
monster as an outlet to play out socio-sexual anxieties in different societies
or gender groups. The author looks at a wide rage of films from countries such
as Cuba, Peru, Mexico and Argentina and draws points of commonality, as well as
comparing essential differences, between the way that horror fictions –
considered by many as low-brow cinema - can be effective to delve into the way
that sexuality and gender operates and circulates in the popular imaginary in
these regions.
