Miskatonic-Montréal goes back to “basics” with this six-week course taught by five different instructors. In the first class, all five instructors will weigh in on Alfred Hitchcock’s PSYCHO (1960) as an urtext for the Slasher film, with an eye towards the later film they have selected. From there, each instructor will trace a Slasher genealogy extending from PSYCHO’s monstrous feminine(s) through a host of the subgenre’s most influential (or notorious) entries.

24 January: PSYCHO (1960, Alfred Hitchcock)

31 January: HALLOWEEN (1978, John Carpenter)

7 February: FRIDAY THE 13TH (1980, Sean S. Cunningham)

14 February: A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2: FREDDY’S REVENGE (1985, Jack Sholder)
