    I.B.Tauris 2006; US$ 14.95

    From silent films to contemporary blockbusters, religion has always proved a popular theme for the cinema.

    Silent cinema was never truly silent. Performances were more often than not accompanied by live music -- whether from a solo pianist or a small orchestra -- and the noise of audiences more than made up for the lack of a soundtrack accompanying the film. It was from the origins of cinema onwards to the coming of sound in 1929 with The Jazz Singer that... more...

  • Horror Filmsby Colin Odell; Michelle LeBlanc

    Oldcastle Books 2010; US$ 14.57

    Horror is one of cinema's most disreputable genres. Frequently dismissed or reviled by critics, the horror film nevertheless provides a way of confronting our fears in a safe environment.
