An exhilarating reinvention of the gothic novel, inspired by the iconic characters of our greatest myths and nightmares. The body of a young girl is found mangled and murdered in the woods of Hemlock Grove, Pennsylvania, in the shadow of the abandoned Godfrey Steel mill. A manhunt ensues—though the authorities aren't sure if it's a man they should be looking for. Some suspect an escapee from the White Tower, a foreboding biotech facility owned by the Godfrey family—their personal fortune and the local economy having moved on from Pittsburgh steel—where, if rumors are true, biological experiments of the most unethical kind take place. Others turn to Peter Rumancek, a Gypsy trailer-trash kid who has told impressionable high school classmates that he's a werewolf. Or perhaps it's Roman, the son of the late JR Godfrey, who rules the adolescent social scene with the casual arrogance of a cold-blooded aristocrat, his superior status unquestioned despite his decidedly freakish sister, Shelley, whose monstrous medical conditions belie a sweet intelligence, and his otherworldly control freak of a mother, Olivia. At once a riveting mystery and a fascinating revelation of the grotesque and the darkness in us all, Hemlock Grove has the architecture and energy to become a classic in its own right—and Brian McGreevy the talent and ambition to enthrall us for years to come.

Libérez la bête en vous ! Hemlock Grove (Pennsylvanie) n'est plus une petite ville paisible. Dans les bois, le corps mutilé d'une jeune fille vient d'être retrouvé. Une chasse à l'homme est lancée. Au sein de la communauté, cependant, une angoissante question se fait jour : ce meurtre est-il vraiment l'œuvre d'un homme ? Et si certains en savaient plus qu'ils ne voulaient bien le dire ? C'est sans doute le cas de Peter Rumancek, jeune gitan qui vient d'emménager en ville avec sa mère et qui a raconté aux élèves du lycée qu'il était un loup-garou. Ou de Roman Godfrey, héritier local, qui fait preuve auprès de ses camarades d'un complexe de supériorité pathologique, alors que sa petite sœur Shelley souffre d'une maladie monstrueuse. Les deux garçons – que tout oppose – vont se rapprocher à la suite de ce meurtre pour tenter d'en percer le mystère. Parallèlement, la famille de Roman s'efforce de cacher les étranges expériences scientifiques effectuées par le Dr Johann Pryce au sein de la société Godfrey... Page-turner impitoyable, chronique adolescente dark en diable, roman gothique 2.0, Hemlock Grove est une plongée sans retour dans le miroir inversé du rêve américain. C'est aussi une série
Quality-TV als Unterhaltungsphänomen

Type: BOOK - Published: 2015-11-20 - Publisher: Springer-Verlag
Ausgangspunkt des Buches ist die Auseinandersetzung mit sogenannten Qualitätsserien als prototypische Produkte des Fernsehens im Zeitalter der kulturellen Konvergenz. Es wird angenommen, dass Qualitätsunterhaltung eine besondere kulturell gebundene, komplexe und bereichernde Rezeptionserfahrung ermöglicht. Sie dient – so das Argument – daher als Nachfragetreiber in einer direkten Produkt-KundInnen-Beziehung. Die Besonderheit des Buches besteht in der Integration unterschiedlicher kommunikations- und medienwissenschaftlicher, medienpsychologischer aber auch ökonomischer Ansätze im Modell des Quality-TV-Unterhaltungserlebens (QTV-UE). Ziel ist ein umfassenderes Verständnis des Wechselspiels von Produktion, Allokation und Rezeption qualitativ hochwertiger, unterhaltsamer Kreativgüter.​

Horror Television in the Age of Consumption

Type: BOOK - Published: 2017-11-15 - Publisher: Routledge
Characterized as it is by its interest in and engagement with the supernatural, psycho-social formations, the gothic, and issues of identity and subjectivity, horror has long functioned as an allegorical device for interrogations into the seamier side of cultural foundations. This collection, therefore, explores both the cultural landscape of this recent phenomenon and the reasons for these television series’ wide appeal, focusing on televisual aesthetics, technological novelties, the role of adaptation and seriality, questions of gender, identity and subjectivity, and the ways in which the shows’ themes comment on the culture that consumes them. Featuring new work by many of the field’s leading scholars, this collection offers innovative readings and rigorous theoretical analyses of some of our most significant contemporary texts in the genre of Horror Television.
Mastering Fear

Type: BOOK - Published: 2018-07-12 - Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing USA
Mastering Fear analyzes horror as play and examines what functions horror has and why it is adaptive and beneficial for audiences. It takes a biocultural approach, and focusing on emotions, gender, and play, it argues we play with fiction horror. In horror we engage not only with the negative emotions of fear and disgust, but with a wide range of emotions, both positive and negative. The book lays out a new theory of horror and analyzes female protagonists in contemporary horror from child to teen, adult, middle age, and old age. Since the turn of the millennium, we have seen a new generation of female protagonists in horror. There are feisty teens in The Vampire Diaries (2009–2017), troubled mothers in The Babadook (2014), and struggling women in the New French extremity with Martyrs (2008) and Inside (2007). At the fuzzy edges of the genre are dramas like Pan's Labyrinth (2006) and Black Swan (2010), and middle-age women are now protagonists with Carol in The Walking Dead (2010–) and Jessica Lange's characters in American Horror Story (2011–). Horror is not just for men, but also for women, and not just for the young, but for audiences of all ages.
The Netflix Vision of Horror

Since the emergence of on-demand streaming platforms, television as a storytelling medium has drastically changed. The lines between TV and cinema are blurred. Traditionally, television relied on narrative forms and genres that were highly formulaic, striving to tease the viewer onward with a series of cliffhangers while still maintaining viewer comprehension. Now, on platforms such as Netflix, the lack of commercial breaks and the practice of "binge-watching" have led to a new type of television flow that urges viewers to see and consume a series as a whole and not as a fragmented narrative. This book examines the structuring methods of 13 Netflix original horror series, including Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Stranger Things, Hemlock Grove, The Haunting of Hill House, and Santa Clarita Diet. Although these shows use television as the medium of storytelling, they are structured according to the classical rules of film.
Company of Wolves

Co-written by Irish filmmaker Neil Jordan and British novelist Angela Carter, and based on several short stories from Carter's collection The Bloody Chamber, The Company of Wolves (1984) is a provocative reinvention of the fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood. Unraveling a feverish metaphor for the blossoming of a young girl’s sexuality and her subsequent loss of innocence, the film entwines symbolism and metaphor with striking visuals and grisly effects. Released in the early 1980s, a time which produced several classic werewolf films (including An American Werewolf in London and The Howling), The Company of Wolves sets itself apart from the pack with its overtly literary roots, feminist stance, and art-house leanings. The film’s narrative takes the form of a puzzle box, unfolding as dreams within dreams, and stories within stories, which lead further into the dark woods of the protagonist's psyche, as she finds herself on the cusp of womanhood. This Devil’s Advocate explores all these aspects, as well as placing the film in the context of the careers of its creators and its position as an example of the "Female Gothic."
Class Divisions in Serial Television

Categories: Performing Arts
Type: BOOK - Published: 2016-12-21 - Publisher: Springer
This book brings the emergent interest in social class and inequality to the field of television studies. It reveals how the new visibility of class matters in serial television functions aesthetically and examines the cultural class politics articulated in these programmes. This ground-breaking volume argues that reality and quality TV’s intricate politics of class entices viewers not only to grapple with previously invisible socio-economic realities but also to reconsider their class alignment. The stereotypical ways of framing class are now supplemented by those dedicated to exposing the economic and socio-psychological burdens of the (lower) middle class. The case studies in this book demonstrate how sophisticated narrative techniques coincide with equally complex ways of exposing class divisions in contemporary American life and how the examined shows disrupt the hegemonic order of class. The volume therefore also invites a rethinking of conventional models of social stratification.
