Aesthetics of Horror: Constructing Horror in the Horrifying Cinema

 
9783639126211: Aesthetics of Horror: Constructing Horror in the Horrifying Cinema

This dissertation explores the various elements that produce the horror effects in film, and the pleasure that is associated with them. The aesthetics of horror is also a critical area discussed while the sources of horror, such as the sublime, the grotesque, and montage, are examineed. In Chapter 1, based on Edmund Burke¿s work on the sublime and the beautiful, several sources of the sublime, such as astonishment, obscurity, power, privation, vastness, infinity, light and darkness, suddenness of sound and ugliness, are examined for their effectiveness in evoking horror. Chapter 2 deals with horror generated by grotesque imagery, using Mikhail Bakhtin¿s writings on the Rabelaisian imagery. The grotesque bodies discussed in this chapter are giants, fantastical human beings, oaths, curses and abusive expressions, carnivalesque and epic grotesque anatomy. The paradoxical nature of the grotesque will also be examined to explain how it appeals and repels at the same time. The last chapter proposes that, since horror has a rigid narrative structure, montage is thus an effective technique in evoking filmic horror.
