Massacred by Mother Nature: Exploring the Natural Horror Film Paperback by Lee Gambin

Since Alfred Hitchcock gave us The Birds, the natural horror film (where animals or insects cause tremendous damage to the human population) has become a much-loved subgenre, but one seldom referenced. This book offers insightful critiques on Them!, Squirm, Orca, The Pack, The Day of the Animals, Prophecy, Tentacles, and over 100 titles. Gambin thoroughly scrutinizes the social and political impact of these films, dissects their fundamental stock standards, offers informative anecdotes, critiques specific narrative devices, and offers an analyses of performance, audience appreciation, and the filmmaking craft.
