Example text

But Tudor himself points out the problem with this in Monsters and Mad Scientists (1989). Under such a model the factor X of the horror film might be taken as being a supernatural monster, say. Any film that contained such a monster would be a horror film, and any film that did not would not belong to the genre. Noel Carroll (1990) takes this argument further and suggests that horror films must contain a frightening and disgusting monster. Carroll claims (1990:39–40) that since the monster (Brundlefly) retains the sympathy of the heroine even when he has become a monstrous revolting half human-half fly creature that therefore by this definition The Fly is not a horror film.

Such an approach to genre has at its core the contradictory notions of on the one hand identifying the key characteristics or essential features of the genre drawn from typical films belonging to that genre and on the other of typing films so as to place them into particular genres. Those films often taken as prime examples of a genre give rise to a certain set of characteristics then taken as defining the genre (a cyclical process which can become self-defeating). In this way, a genre can become a self-defining entity – adefinition can be selective, excluding films that are too dissimilar to a pre-supposed definition, or it can be so wide that the definition becomes too unwieldy or ambiguous.

Horror cinema is thus often ‘presold’ by dint of its popularity and common cultural currency in other forms (fans of horror film are also likely to consume it in these other media). 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.
