520    "A leading Gothic and food scholar, Piatti-Farnell offers 
       an insightful examination of the social and cultural 
       anxieties that surround food. Acknowledging the centrality
       of eating to survival and culture, she explores how food 
       horror undermines the normality of food by confronting us 
       with its abject realities. Often unsettling, sometimes 
       revolting, but always enlightening, Piatti-Farnell's 
       analysis gives the reader a lot to chew over; food for 
       thought for the horror fan or scholar alike. Bon Appetit."
       - Stacey Abbott is a Reader in Film and Television Studies
       at the University of Roehampton, UK. She is the author of 
       Undead Apocalypse: Vampires and Zombies in the 21st 
       Century (2016) This book offers a critical analysis of the
       relationship between food and horror in post-1980 cinema. 
       Evaluating the place of consumption within cinematic 
       structures, Piatti-Farnell analyses how seemingly ordinary
       foods are re-evaluated in the Gothic framework of 
       irrationality and desire. The complicated and often 
       ambiguous relationship between food and horror draws 
       important and inescapable connections to matters of 
       disgust, hunger, abjection, violence, as well as the 
       sensationalisation of transgressive corporeality and 
       monstrous pleasures. By looking at food consumption within
       Gothic cinema, the book uncovers eating as a metaphorical 
       activity of the self, where the haunting psychology of the
       everyday, the porous boundaries of the body, and the 
       uncanny limits of consumer identity collide. Aimed at 
       scholars, researchers, and students of the field, 
       Consuming Gothic charts different manifestations of food 
       and horror in film while identifying specific socio-
       political and cultural anxieties of contemporary life
