About the Author

Alexandra West has written about genre films for The Toronto Star, Rue Morgue Magazine and Offscreen Film Journal, and regularly contributes to Shock Till You Drop, Famous Monsters of Filmland and Diabolique. In 2012, she co-founded the Faculty of Horror podcast, which explores the analytical side of horror films. She lives in Toronto, Ontario.


"West may not have intended to write a feminist book about horror films, but in many ways that's exactly what she did.... West is a self-professed devotee of the genre...well-researched... An interesting read for horror fans and cinephiles alike."--Booklist; "West's invaluable insight is educational but rarely dry. Even if you're familiar with every movie profiled in the book, you're likely to look at them in a new light - in addition to learning a few interesting facts"--Broke Horror Fan; "[West] makes a very convincing argument for the re-evaluation of these [films], particularly through a fiminist lens. West shows herself to be an incredibly talented and gifted writer, able to deftly analyze films that were otherwise disrespected and actually make the case stick.... a very, very good, very effective book that should be placed in the pantheon of must own books about horror movies"--Daily Grindhouse; "an interesting chronicle of one of the most overlooked decades of horror cinema.... The book reads like a trip down memory lane, and West never condescends or trash-talks the quality of the lesser entries of the decade.... Fans of this unique period in horror films will surely find a lot to reminisce over and think about from a new perspective in this text"--Horror News Network.
