Building upon concepts like the uncanny, return of the repressed, art-horror, and the monster, how has contemporary horror subverted these tropes? This discussion will be less theory-based then it will be about applying theory to various films.
Level 1: View one or more of the following films:
Get Out by Jordan Peele
A Quiet Place by John Krasinski
Cabin in the Woods by Drew Goddard
The Final Girls by Todd Strauss-Schulson
Level 2: View a contemporary horror film of your choice, try not to go further than the late 1990s.
