"Gender is monstrous in the horror film and it exceeds even the category of human. The genders that emerge triumphant at the gory conclusion of a splatter film are literally post human, they punish the limits of the human body and they mark identities as always stitched, sutured, bloody at the seams, and completely beyond the limits and the reaches of an impotent humanism."
–Judith Halberstam. "Skin Shows: Gothic Horror and the Technology of Monsters". Chapter "Bodies That Splatter: Queers and Chainsaws".
