Splatter Capital argues that the emphatically messy brand of horror mobilized in gore films is extremely responsive to the internal contradictions that threaten the future sustainability of capitalist accumulation.
Shedding light on the revolutionary potential of cinema and how it reflects, even and especially in its margins, the economic and political fears of its day, Splatter Capital acts as a source of both theoretical and practical knowledge for surviving the horror movie we collectively inhabit.
Praise for Splatter Capital:
“… for the fans of these films who’ve always wondered about the ineluctable appeal of visceral, shocking violence on screen, and perhaps why it all feels so strangely familiar.” – We Are the Mutants
“We need more engagements like Splatter Capital, especially if we hope that radical political philosophy should not be locked within the ivory tower.” – Canadian Society for Continental Philosophy
