Australian Gothic

A Cinema of Horrors

A study of a distinctly Australian, Gothic film tradition.
 
Recognized since at least the 1970s, Gothic resemblances in Australian film remain understudied. This book offers the first comprehensive study of the Gothic in Australian cinema. Tracing images of familiarity, monstrosity, hybridity, and sublimity on screen, Jonathan Rayner maps a distinctively national Gothic tradition in Australian film.
