Joan Hawkins, Cutting Edge: Art-Horror and the Horrific Avant-garde (Minneapolis and London: University of Minnesota Press, 2000), 326pp. Pb. ISBN 0-8166-3414-9

This review argues that Hawkins contributes an important argument to contemporary debates on the subversiveness of "art-horror" in destabilising common assumptions of taste and the aesthetic strategies of underground movies generally.
