  • I was a teenage psycho killer : Halloween and the history of youth horror cinema -- Familial and societal failure : reading youth and ideology in Halloween -- A triptych of youth : teenagers, preadolescents, and young adults in Halloween -- The mise en abyme of youth : the Halloween franchise.
  • "John Carpenter's 1978 horror hit Halloween was once considered the be-all, end-all of teen slasher cinema and was regarded as the first, the best, and the most influential American slasher film. Recent revisions in film history, however, have challenged Halloween's comfortable place in the canon of youth horror cinema. This study argues that Halloween need not be the first nor the most influential youth slasher film for it to hold a special place in the history of youth cinema. In a manner like no other film, Halloween draws from the themes, imagery, and obsessions that fuelled youth horror cinema since the 1950s - Gothic atmosphere, atomic dread, twisted psychology, and alienated teenage monsters - and ties them together in the deceptively simple story of a masked killer stalking babysitters on Halloween night. Along the way, the film delivers a savage critique of social institutions and their failure to protect young people. Halloween also depicts a cadre of compelling and complicated youth characters: teenage babysitters watching over preadolescents as a killer, who is viciously avoiding the responsibilities of young adulthood, stalks them through the shadows. This book explores all these aspects of Halloween, including the franchise it spawned"--
