Abstract

This article appears in a volume which constitutes an important contribution to the study of Hispanic popular culture, both in terms of theoretical concerns about the definitions of popular culture and in terms of the insights it offers into a wider range of popular cultural phenomena. My chapter focuses on one of the most neglected popular genres in Spanish film studies and identifies the need for an archaeology of horror in Spanish film, arguing that the analysis of Spanish horror offers a productive way into the discussion of key debates such as culture and subculture, canon and criticism and reading protocols within the field of Spanish cultural studies. The piece establishes the theoretical and methodological groundwork for my project on Spanish horror film from the late 1960s to the present which will finally lead to the publication of the first critical history of the hitherto neglected area of Spanish horror.
