From the Inside Flap
We have needed a book like this for decades: a new understanding of film spectatorship in light of home video. Caetlin Benson-Allott offers a smart and often unexpected reconsideration of watching movies on small screens that ingeniously brings together film theory, industrial history, and horror flicks, weaving a complex yet crystalline account. This ambitious book deserves to be a new foundational text. Lucas Hilderbrand, author of "Inherent Vice: Bootleg Histories of Videotape and Copyright"
..".Incredibly engaging and compelling in its grappling with an underrepresented area of study that richly deserves the kind of full-bodied treatment this author gives it. Hats off."Barbara Klinger, author of "Beyond The Multiplex: Cinema, New Technologies, and the Home""
