This anthology comprises essays that study the form, aesthetics and representations of LGBTQ+ identities in an emerging subgenre of film and television that the editors dub “New Queer Horror.” New Queer Horror designates horror that is crafted by directors or producers who identify as gay, bi, queer, or transgendered, or works that feature homoerotic, or explicitly homosexual, narratives with “out” LGBTQ+ characters. Unlike other studies, this anthology argues that New Queer Horror projects contemporary anxieties within LGBTQ+ subcultures onto its characters and into its narratives, building upon the previously figurative role of Queer monstrosity in the moving image. New Queer Horror thus highlights the limits of a metaphorical understanding of queerness in the horror film in an age where its presence has become more unambiguous. Ultimately, this anthology aims to show that in recent years New Queer Horror has turned the focus of fear upon itself, on its own communities and subcultures.
