Even though it's not directly related to modern horror film, Franco
Moretti's "The Dialectic of Fear" in New Left Review #136 (1982) is a good
cultural/literary critique that is quoted around...thus gaining in
"hipness". Also, btw, as a bit of trivia, Franco Moretti is Nanni Moretti's
(he of Caro Diario fame) academic brother...
I guess it's useless  to tell you about Carol Clover's _Men, Women and
Chainsaws_ and Waller's _American Horrors_...
