Sunday, October 26, 2014
2:00 PM

Brooks Room

American popular culture has always been deeply invested in the supernatural, offering up ghosts, demons, witches, vampires and other uncanny creatures. In the mid-1970s “supernatural horror” became its own distinct subgenre responding to a new crop of social anxieties. We'll look at how “supernatural horror” developed and then talk about its durability and ability to turn American dreams into nightmares. Films discussed will include Rosemary’s Baby, The Exorcist, The Amityville Horror, The Shining, Poltergeist, Paranormal Activity, and others.
