Abstract

This article argues for the cultural importance of Jim Mickle's Mulberry Street (2006), in which rat-people invade a Manhattan tenement block, as the progenitor of a modern cycle of economic horror films focused on the horrors of poverty and homelessness following the financial crisis of 2007–08 and the Great Recession.
