This is a talk I gave this Thursday at the 'Mark of the Devil: On a Classic Exploitation Film'-conference in Tamsweg (close to where the movie was shot). Here's the key paragraph from the abstract submitted in November 2013: My proposed presentation will zero in on the struggle for authorship between Armstrong and Hoven, primarily as related through the paratexts included in the Blu-Ray release, yet will also consider the potential impact Hoven's appearance in the diegesis has on his claims to authorship. As I will demonstrate, the somewhat curious result that emerges from both Armstrong’s and Hoven’s (as presented by nearly the entire cast) individual claims to authorship is an effective re-assertion of the filmmaking process's collaborative nature.

I've decided to start posting chapter & article drafts here in an attempt to force myself to create a little more content. Since this is the internet, the versions found here will be more multimedially oriented than the print versions.
