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 See all Product description
