Gary L. Pullman's thoughtful blog on the theory and practice of horror writing had a nice write-up of my comments on psychoanalytic theory and the horror genre from Knowing Fear. I can't do the piece justice in a few sentences. Part I is an excellent read and well worth the time,though I am less enthusiastic about Part II, which focuses on providing Christian interpretations of horror.
I am an author and researcher focusing on pop culture, science, and history. Bylines: New Republic, Esquire, Slate, etc. There's more about me in the About Jason tab.
