Review:

"This exceptionally clever book offers an animated romp through contemporary horror films, highlighting links between this popular genre and cultural anxieties about youth and education. Grunzke argues that horror movies' characterization of mad scientists, school bullies, dysfunctional families, and the creepy aspects of school hallways, college dorms, and summer camps provide a mirror with which Americans have identified their own social fears about youth, knowledge, and education." - Kate Rousmaniere, Professor of History of Education, Miami University, Ohio, USA.

"Grunzke stretches the history of education to unexamined places of learning brilliantly, with acid irony and scholarly verve. He makes the horror film, a storied cinematic genre, a teaching institution. It mirrors adolescent angst, lacing the picture with personal terrors and humor, experiences routinely omitted from historical excursions. Grunzke gives them life and consequence." - Donald Warren, Professor Emeritus, Education History and Policy, Indiana University, USA
