Tensions in Exorcism Cinema

This page contains the links for all of the posts published on this blog referencing the Tensions in Exorcism Cinema project.  This project utilizes various critical theories (e.g. feminism, Marxism, post-colonialism, post-modernism, queer theory) to scrutinize the representation of possession and exorcism in film depictions.

This project has culminated in the book Possessed Women, Haunted States: Cultural Tensions in Exorcism Cinema from Lexington Books: https://rowman.com/ISBN/9781498519090

There appear to be at least five clusterings of movies that make up exorcism cinema: Pre-Exorcist Series, The Exorcist Series, 1970s Exploitations Series, Modern True Movies Series, and Modern B-Movies Series.

Thus, this page organizes the writings on this project and can be used to locate and jump around these writings.
