Abstract

How do Antipodean films and television programmes represent their own sense of the Gothic? What does the contemporary Gothic look like on the large and small screen in productions from Australia and New Zealand? New ways of watching film and television via popular streaming services have seen a reinvigoration of this ‘most domestic of media’. What does this look like ‘Down Under’ in the twenty-first century? This introduction to the collection traces representations of the Gothic in film and television in Australia and New Zealand in the twenty-first century. It attends to the development and mutation of the Gothic in these post- or neo-colonial contexts, concentrating on the generic innovations of this temporal and geographical focus.
