"This is ambitious and thought-provoking film scholarship, poised at the crossroads of horror studies, childhood studies, and trauma studies. This crossdisciplinary range is enhanced by a rewarding transnational focus (moving across the U.S., Spain, and Japan) as well as an in-depth consideration of millennial horror (including such influential films as The Ring and The Others). Balanzategui’s approach is original, stimulating, and valuable for a diverse array of research areas."

"I strongly recommend this excellent book. Given its strong scholarship, breadth and depth of inquiry, as well as the inclusion of diverse contexts of production and reception, the volume is certain to become an important resource for researchers on horror film, transnational cinema, and, more generally, film studies."
