From Méliès to Midsommar: The History of Horror In Cinema

Start Date:
October 27, 2019
End Date:
October 27, 2019

Jack Hanley explores the exciting intersection of "How to Watch a Movie" and "Friday Night Weird" with a lecture and discussion of this much maligned genre in the style of his fast-paced and popular overview of film history. They've reflected our collective anxieties, held a mirror up to our contemporary concerns- and they're more popular than ever. Join critic and historian Jack Hanley for an interactive history of the Horror Film- from it's birth alongside film to the modern New Wave. We'll explore the major themes, movements, and films of the genre as we discover why we need them- what they say about us. With special guests Brian Bonner and Shay Wescott.
