The Things That Keep Us Up At Night: Reel Bio-horror by Victoria Sutton.
This book celebrates the new subgenre of biohorror and biothriller movies which has grown rapidly in the last two decades, building on a classic past beginning with Nosferatu (1922) and The Seventh Seal (1957) moving through the Biotechnology Revolution to the movies that use engineered and natural attacks from Mother Nature. All of these movies bring an amazing view of human nature in a disaster, a pandemic and sometimes a collapse of society.
This book examines 48 movies representative of this biohorror subgenre with a look through the science and the law. Could this really happen? What laws do we have to protect us? What science do we have that can combat these biological threats? A book that will keep you up at night.
