La bestia interior

Hydes, licántropos y otras figuras teriantrópicas en el imaginario audiovisual

(The inner beast. Hydes, werewolves and other therianthropic figures in the audiovisual imaginary)

This book is an invitation to explore the different faces of the cinematographic treatment of the beast that lives inside the human being. Through its pages parade werewolves, Mr. Hyde, cat women and other crosses of human being and beast, in a journey that goes from the founding texts of Greco-Latin culture to contemporary cinema and from classic Hollywood to Eastern European auteur cinema. The themes and places that this book visits offer the reader the possibility of looking directly at those inner beasts, which are nothing more than incarnations of what scares us about ourselves.

Coordinated by Ángel Sala and Jordi Sánchez-Navarro, The Beast Within has contributions from the coordinators themselves and from Lluís Rueda, Violeta Kovacsics, Marta Torres, Diego López and Mike Hostench. In the texts of these authors, the reader will find texts of a diverse nature, in a polyphony of formats and styles that brings new perspectives and new ideas about a myth of fantastic cinema that continues to enjoy great vitality.
