Personal profile

Key Research Interests and Expertise


My research focuses upon the alternative philosophies of American horror and science fiction films - in particular, low budget exploitation films, "badfilm" and "bad" films, and cult cinema.

My research interests are in: American Horror Films, specifically Horror/Sci-Fi Films of the 1950s; American Social Critics in the 1950s; the Films of William Castle (1958-1968); the Philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche; Existentialism, particularly 1950s American existential discourse; the Cold War (1945-1963); the Philosophy of Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
