Early life[ edit ] Barbara Creed is a well-known Australian commentator on film and media. She is a graduate of Monash and La Trobe University , completing her doctrinal thesis and research on the cinema of horror.

Her current research includes human rights and animal ethics on screen. Her work seriously considers the subjects of feminism, psychoanalysis, and post-culturalism. Creed wrote an essay on Kristeva and film in for the British Film Journal. Key Focuses[ edit ] Women in horror films have been consistently represented and portrayed as weak, submissive, and highly sexualized. Creed argues that within horror films, the male gaze is oftentimes the central focus.

This exemplifies how sexually active women are harlots , who warrant their own death, wherein only the "pure" women deserve the live. According to Kristeva, abjection is the failure to distinguish what constitutes as "self", and what is "other". She explains this by focuses on how horror emphasizes boundaries of humanity and beyond. Creed examples that in examples where the monster is clearly defined as male, its status as male identifies it with a lack, and hence defines it as feminized.

Creed critically examines the history of the "witch" from the middle ages to the rise of Catholicism. Creed discusses how this creates a fear that women are allegedly actively trying to castrate men.
