Miskatonic director and longtime horror writer/film programmer Kier-La Janisse kicks off the Miskatonic season with this 2-evening course on horror film criticism for teens aged 14+. The course will focus on developing an aptitude for critical interpretation, using Jack Smight’s 1973 Frankenstein: The True Story as a focal point. Examples of various historical schools of writing and interpretation will accompany open discussion in class, as well as individual review assignments. Each participant will be given a movie to take home and review using the tools and insider tips discussed in class, and these reviews will be posted on the Fangoria Magazine website’s Miskatonic Blog!
