Illustrates how contemporary horror films explore visceral and emotional reactions to the attacks and how they underpin audiences' fears about their safety. This title examines how scary movies have changed as a result of 9/11 and, conversely, how horror films construct and give meaning to the event in a way that other genres do not.
