The horror film reveals as much, if not more, about the British psyche as the heritage film or the social realist drama. But like a mad relative locked in the attic, British horror cinema has been ignored and maligned. Even when it has been celebrated, neglect is not far behind and what studies there have been have been have concentrated largely on the output of Hammer, the best-known producers of British horror. But that is only part of the story. It’s a tradition that encompasses work by both celebrated auteurs such as Hitchcock and Polanski, as well as a series of opportunistic, often-unashamed hacks. Frightmares is an in-depth analysis of the home-grown horror film, each chapter anchored by a close study of two or more key titles, consisting of textual analysis, production history, marketing and reception. Although broadly chronological, attention is also be paid to the thematic links, emphasising both the wide-range of the genre and highlighting some of the less-explored avenues. Chapters focus on the origins of British horror and its foreign influences, Hammer (of course), the influence of American International Pictures, notably their Vincent Price films, and other American filmmakers, the ‘savage Seventies’ and the new wave of twenty-first century British horror.

The Life And Times Of A D Blumlein

Burns, a physicist retired to a second career in the history of electrical engineering, presents the second biography of Blumlein (1903-42) this year. He describes how the British electronics engineer contributed enormously to the fields of telephony and electrical measurements, monophonic and stereophonic recording and reproduction, high definition television, electronics, antennas and cables, and radar systems of various types. Because the policy of the company he worked for discouraged publishing, only two learned society papers exist, there is no collection of personal letters, and most his friends and coworkers are dead, Burns has had to draw heavily on the 128 patents granted him between 1927 and 1942, but relegates the technical material to chapter-end notes for the sake of those who just want a good story.

Part sitcom, part sketch show, part "Kitchen Sink," part "Northern Gothic," The League of Gentlemen is one of British television’s most innovative and enduring comedy series. Set in the northern town of Royston Vasey, the series introduced viewers to homicidal Local Shop keepers Tubbs and Edward, vindictive training officer Pauline, demonic butcher Hilary Briss, and the nightmarish circus owner Papa Lazarou. Such was the series’ effect that the word "local" would never seem the same again. The majority of these grotesque characters were played by Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith, who created and wrote the series with Jeremy Dyson. In addition to creating a unique world, where the mundane collided with the macabre, the League showcased a versatility in its performers rarely seen in TV comedy. Leon Hunt’s entertaining and illuminating study offers the most sustained analysis of the series. Drawing on original interviews with Dyson and Gatiss, he traces the League’s evolution, from fringe theater to radio to television, from sketch-based material to the longer narratives of the Christmas Special and the contentious third series. Hunt contextualises the series as a "cult classic," discussing its place within traditions of British comedy, its references to horror and fantasy and its creation of a grotesque and self-contained world.
