Lethal Repetition: Serial Killing in European Cinema
By: Richard Dyer (author)Paperback
For such a rare phenomenon, serial killing gains a lot of attention on film, often presented as an ever-growing danger, either symptomatic of the times we live in or an abiding feature of human existence. Richard Dyer explores the plethora of assumptions, influences and ideas behind the many representations of serial killers in European cinema.
