    I Dream of Deep Water: An Exploration of the History and Psychology of Aquatic Horror (LA)
    Wed. Oct. 24, 2018 - 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Philosophical Research Society

    From unknown ghosts of the deep to sharks, mermaids, gators and the Great Old Ones of Lovecraftian lore, This lecture by Rebekah McKendry will examine not only the history of aquatic horror, focusing on film, but also touching on earlier texts and visual arts. McKendry will also explore the psychology behind our fascination with unknown fathoms, exploring the mental intersections of fear and fascination, the symbolism of submergence, and the subconscious primordial elements of the deep.

    Dan Curtis: Old School/New School (NYC)
    Thu. Oct. 25, 2018 - 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
    The Paley Centre for Media

    In the early 1970s, just before Hollywood auteurs like Wes Craven and John Carpenter invented the modern horror film, eschewing old-school, fantastical monsters for gritty, politically edged stories aimed at excavating our deepest anxieties, producer/director Dan Curtis dominated television horror with a series of programs reinterpreting traditional genre tropes. Join us as we explore Curtis’s horror oeuvre, exploring his thematic and aesthetic preoccupations, his evocation of the times, his own influences, and his influence on the men and women who have followed in his footsteps by finding the terror place inside us and squeezing it with a cold hand.

    Thu. Nov. 8, 2018 - 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Philosophical Research Society

    The horror genre has always been informed by bottomless displaced anxieties about the body, disease, and medicine. In this lecture, the author of THE MONSTER SHOW and HOLLYWOOD GOTHIC explores the pop culture underpinnings of modern horror in real-life crises like the thalidomide disaster, the AIDS epidemic, poisoned Tylenol and plastic surgery/body modification.

  • Ha! Aaah! The Painful Relationship Between Humor and Horror (NYC)
    Ha! Aaah! The Painful Relationship Between Humor and Horror (NYC)
    Tue. Nov. 13, 2018 - 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
    Film Noir Cinema

    Veteran comedy writer David Misch (Mork & Mindy, Police Squad!, Saturday Night Live) explores how both humor and horror share a mordant view of our relationship to pain – an obsession with the human body and its multifarious fluids, and a subtext of death and transcendence underlying the eviscerated flesh and fart jokes. What could be more blood-curdlingly fun?

  • The Frequency of Fear: The Power and the Glory of the Motion Picture Soundtrack (NYC)
    The Frequency of Fear: The Power and the Glory of the Motion Picture Soundtrack (NYC)

    Thu. Dec. 13, 2018 - 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Philosophical Research Society

    Director Rodman Flender breaks down visual storytelling to its most basic narrative requirements. Often the centerpiece of horror and thriller films, the murder set piece is its own three-act “mini movie,” with beginning, middle and climax. With close-read examinations and comparisons of murder set pieces from the silent era through contemporary releases, students will gain an understanding of the essential tools needed to create tension and suspense on a visceral and psychological level.

  • Roads to Hell: The Highway Horror Film (London)
    Roads to Hell: The Highway Horror Film (London)
    Thu. Dec. 13, 2018 - 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    The Horse Hospital

    This class will introduce students to the ‘Highway Horror Film,’ an overlooked sub-genre of the wider American horror tradition which articulates profound unease about the transitory nature of modern American life, as well as the wider impact of mass automobility. We begin with Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho (1960), focusing on the relationship between the film and the emergence in the 1930s of the motel as a new kind of roadside business, and move through the ‘highway nemesis’ narrative and purgatorial tales such as Carnival of Souls (1962) and Dead End (2003).
