The taste for horror is arguably as great today as it has ever been.

Since the turn of the millennium, the horror genre has seen various developments emerging out of a range of contexts, from new industry paradigms and distribution practices to the advancement of subgenres that reflect new and evolving fears.

New Blood builds upon preceding horror scholarship to offer a series of critical perspectives on the genre since the year 2000, presenting a collection of case studies on topics as diverse as the emergence of new critical categories (such as the contentiously named 'prestige horror'), new subgenres (including 'digital folk horror' and 'desktop horror') and horror on-demand ('Netflix horror'), and including analyses of key films such as The Witch and Raw and TV shows like Stranger Things and Channel Zero.

Never losing sight of the horror genre's ongoing political economy, New Blood is an exciting contribution to film and horror scholarship that will prove to be an essential addition to the shelves of researchers, students and fans alike.
