Horror’s Collective Memory: Gregory Waller ‘Introduction to American Horrors’

“Taking the horror film as our guide we can and should begin to rethink the nature of ‘influence’ and ‘imitation’ and the meaning of ‘genre’ and ‘formula’ in contemporary popular culture – in so doing we inevitably rethink our own understanding of horror as well”

Gregory A. Waller, ‘Introduction’ from American Horrors (1987, University of Illinois Press) reproduced in The Horror Reader.
