Biography

Zach Price teaches and researches in the fields of contemporary cinema, visual effects, and medical humanities. His work specializes in medical aesthetics of the body and narratives of bodily transformation in horror, thriller, and science fiction films.

He is working on his first book project, Molecular Terror: Biopolitics and Visceral Effects in Contemporary Cinema, which investigates the resurgence of a “molecular vision” both within Hollywood and global movie industries. He argues that the digital revolution in visual effects over the last thirty years has restructured the politics of cinema’s immersion in the body and altered the metaphors filmmakers use to depict sickness.

He has published in Horror Studies on plastic surgery in Pedro Almodóvar’s The Skin I Live In, and in Screen on flat affect and post-industrial vampires.
