    Similarly, those who see fit to critique psychoanalytic theories of the horror film almost always have alternative, incompatible or so it may seem paradigms in mind. Theorizing the Uncanny: 5. In the process, the infant assumes a mastery over the body that it does not have, and this self-deception forms the basis for the development of the infant's ego. The most important tenets of psychoanalysis are defined and described in the "Core Concepts" section, including theories of motivation, unconscious processes, transference and countertransference, defense and resistance, and gender and sexuality. But unless and until the necessary qualifications are proffered, they stand in evident conflict with one another as the predominant genders of monster and victim are reversed in each.

    You would leave your poor house behind and all your problems with The Horror Film and Psychoanalysis book and family and you would go into the cinema and there they would have penthouses and white telephones and the women were lovely and the men always had an appropriate witticism to say and things were funny, but they always turned out well, and the heroes were genuine heroes and it was just great. Rather, the two are cousins, responses to the problems of selfhood and identity, sexuality and pleasure, fear and anxiety as they manifest themselves in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. That boy grew up to be Woody Allen, a man who must have spent at least as much of his life in psychoanalysis as he has in the cinema, and the man who, more than anyone else, made shrinks famous on film. How else could one account for the astonishingly abrupt shift in the American horror film from the progressive, exploratory, often radical late s—70s to the reactionary and repressive s?
