Course Description

Horror films often have a misconception of being bloody, violent, and gratuitous, but not so much back in the day. This course explores the ways filmmakers used horror films to express the current social issues that made Americans fearful. From fears of Europeans experimenting with body eugenics (Frankenstein) to fears of mind-controlling invaders from a foreign land (Invasion of the Body Snatchers), from Hitler to the Cold War, these films will provide students with insight into what made Americans afraid of the dark.  Lecture (plus Questions); Facilitated Discussion; Viewing Videos
