Adaptation is not only a key cultural practice and strategy for filmmakers, but it is also a theme of major importance within horror cinema as a whole. Horror film's history is full of adaptations that have drawn from fiction or folklore, or that have assumed the shape of remakes of pre-existing films. However, the horror genre itself also abounds with its own myriad transformations and transmutations. This collection of essays - many written by leading authorities in the discipline of cinema studies - demonstrates the significance of the adaptative process in the theory, practice and thematics of horror film."--book jacket." ;
