All colour drains from your face, your palms go sweaty, the hair on the back of your neck stands up.. Either you're watching a horror film, or you've just forgotten there's a test tomorrow. In this course we will do both. We will watch a range of horror films, the severity of which will depend on our acquisition of a room with some privacy. We will read short stories and research academic articles all with the purpose of understanding the nature of our society's fascination with fear. Why do we seek out these things which make us feel uncomfortable? What part of our collective subconscious causes us to seek out the unpleasant? Join this class, help me answer these questions! What are you afraid of?
