Abstract: First paragraph: This issue of Horror Studies is dedicated to the theme of Hispanic horror, or horror texts that have some connection with cultures that can be considered to come under a Hispanic umbrella. The field has a long history that has often gone unnoticed, first because of horror’s exile from the canon and the mainstream for many decades if not centuries, and second, because of the fact that many (although by no means all) Hispanic horror texts have been made in Spanish or, more rarely, languages connected with Spanish-speaking territories. This latter fact has made them less accessible to critique in the anglophone sphere, and greater awareness of them is long overdue.
