Sorry about the eternal reminding, I'm feeling like an OAP right now, HOWEVER, that post about the art show below reminded me of a book I read 4 years ago called The Monstrous Feminine, by Barbara Creed, about females in horror fims and the symbolism and relations of their feminity to horror. She looks at films such as Alien, Poltergeist, Psycho and Little Shop of Horrors. It's got lots of psychoanalysis and film analysis, and although I take all the theories with a pinch of salt, its definitely worth a read...
