Simian Horror in Rise and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Linnaeus University, Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Department of Languages. (LNUC Concurrences in Postcolonial Studies)
2015 (English)In: Animal Horror Cinema: Genre, History and Criticism / [ed] Johan Höglund, Katarina Gregersdotter, Nicklas Hållén, Palgrave Macmillan, 2015, 224-239 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter discusses how Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes query the normative notion that humanity is the natural sovereign of the Earth. The chapter argues that these recent films eschew the allegorical dimension that informs the first generation of films in favour of a more direct engagement with human/animal concerns. The study discusses these concerns with the help of the concepts Homo Sacer and the Anthropological Machine developed by Giorgio Agamben and argues that the Planet of the Apes series disturbs and horrifies its audience not primarily because it pits the animal against the human in a Darwinian struggle, but because it shows the borders that separate the two to be artificial and imaginary.
