Exploring contemporary horror films.
We are in the midst of a horror film resurgence. A significant group of contemporary horror films made in the past couple of years are reminiscent of the socio-political classics of the 1960s and 1970s in that they are boldly confronting the terrifying undercurrent of life today. Like their predecessors, these films tackle class, gender identity, and race in way that shows us both where we are and how far we, perhaps, haven’t come. Infused with artistic style and cutting narratives, the new landscapes of horror are being explored, and celebrated, in NEW HORROR.
Screenings in 2017 included: XX, Kuso, Super Dark Times, Prevenge, Raw, The Lure, Hounds of Love, Tragedy Girls, Get Out, and Please Kill Me.
