"Sharply written, fiercely intelligent."-Flick Attack

"Syfy Channel, horror film aficionados, and film students will no doubt be enthralled by this volume. The book challenges all readers to consider ecological messages, no matter what the mode of presentation."-Patricia Ann Owens, Journal of the Illinois State Historical Society

"From cannibals to cockroaches, Robin L. Murray and Joseph K. Heumann fill a major gap in the field with this wide-ranging treatment of horror in ecocinema. Scholarship of this kind contributes tremendously to the expansion of ecocriticism from the study of 'literature' per se to the understanding of how environmental themes, such as anthropomorphism and gendered landscapes, occur in visual culture."-Scott Slovic, coeditor of Numbers and Nerves: Information, Emotion, and Meaning in a World of Data

"Compelling. . . . Clear and meticulous. Another tremendous contribution to the field of ecocinema studies."-Stephen Rust, coeditor of Ecocinema Theory and Practice

"[Readers] will find in this new book solid scholarship, broad research in the cinematic references necessary to approach the topics, and insightful analysis and juxtaposition of films . . . all contributing to our understanding of how 'horror' is among us now in the very real prospects of violent and sudden climate change."-Charles J. Stivale, editor of Gilles Deleuze: Key Concepts
