Summary Explores the relationship between serial killing and affect as a form of cinematic horror that repositions the viewer away from the logic of reason through a dismantling of subjectivity via 'modifications' to the body. The chapter has a particular attention to the representation of serial killing in the museum space - theoretically a locus of modern rationality and order- to argue that the museum can be philsophically understood as functioning to detatch desire from subjective formation and fixed encoding of identies. The chapter draws on philosopher Gilles Deleuze and theorists Anna Powell and Steven Shaviro.
