January 2013 issue of Choice (the review publication of the ALA):
Picart and Browning's book is a learned and, in places, intriguing study of monsters, with an emphasis on motion pictures, by established authorities in various fields. The editors divide the pieces more or less evenly into seven sections: "General Theories of Monstrosity" (five essays, including an extract from Stephen Prince's "Dread, Taboo and The Thing," first published in Wide Angle, 1988); "Teratologies of Nationality and Race" (three essays); "In between Fear and Desire" (three); "Queer Theory and Boundary Crossings" (two essays, one of them Judith [Jack] Halberstam's "Seed of Chucky: Transbiology and the Horror Flick"); "Criminology, Law, and Teratologies: Between the Real and the Reel" (four essays); "The Biological Monstrous and Gender: The Human-Animal-Machine Divides" (four); and " Teratologies and Ethics" (three, e.g., an extract from Dominick LaCapra's "Reopening the Question of the Human and the Animal"). The varied choice of authors and subjects leaves nothing to be desired. In addition, a 14-page bibliography, a 13-page index, and notes on contributors add an appropriate finish to this valuable resource. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, researchers/faculty, and professionals. -- R. Blackwood, emeritus, City Colleges of Chicago
