SCIENCE FICTION DOUBLE FEATURE: THE SCIENCE FICTION FILM AS CULT TEXT. Ed. by J. P. Telotte. Liverpool University Press, 2015. Distributed by Oxford University Press. 256 pp. ISBN 9781781381830 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Critical discussion of cult cinema has often noted its tendency to straddle or ignore boundaries, to pull together different sets of conventions, narrative formulas, or character types for the almost surreal pleasure to be found in their sudden juxtapositions or narrative combination. With its own boundary-blurring nature - as both science and fiction, reality and fantasy - science fiction has played a key role in such cinematic cult formation. This volume examines that largely unexplored relationship, looking at how the sf film's own double nature neatly matches up with a persistent double vision common to the cult film. It does so by bringing together an international array of scholars to address key questions about the intersections of sf and cult cinema: how different genre elements, directors, and stars contribute to cult formation; what role fan activities, including "con" participation, play in cult development; and how the occulted or "bad" sf cult film works.
