Lindsay has researched extensively in the area of horror studies, exploring many different areas to do with the body, gender, trauma, national identity, colonialism, and race, applying different theoretical methodologies across different media forms. She has been published in several peer-reviewed journal and edited collections on topics such as female vampires, torture porn and post-9/11 trauma, desktop horror, mad science films, Italian horror, Australian eco-horror, and the television series Twin Peaks.
Lindsay has published two books, Screening the Marquis de Sade: Pleasure Pain and the Transgressive Body in Film, which was based on her PhD and released in 2012, and Devil's Advocates: Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, which came out in September, 2018. Her first book examined representations of the body through the philosophy of the Marquis de Sade, which allowed for further investigation into cultural taboos, censorship and transgression. Explorations of gender played a large part of the book, and has continued to be a key area of interest in her research on horror cinema.
Lindsay's second book is part of Auteur Press's Devil's Advocates series, with each volume examining a classic horror film. The book is one of several pieces of work she has done on Twin Peaks, as it is a stimulating and important object to study, given that it reaches across several forms of media, encompassing film, television and digital streaming services, as well as paratexts in the form of literature, social media campaigns, Blu-ray extras and fan-made productions.
