Many of you do not know this, but I am in University, doing a specialist in Women and Gender Studies. I love being back in school (I did two college programs and then was out of school for two years) and want to do something with my life where I can help people! Since I’m doing a specialist rather than a major, I need to take a lot of Women and Gender Studies courses, but I do get to take some general interest courses too! This year, in the winter term, I will be taking a Cinema Studies course in Horror Film! The paragraph about the course says that the class will be focusing on three types of horror: the un-dead (yay for zombies!), body horror and the supernatural, which I think are three fun types to focus on. Topics of the course include: the aesthetics of gore and violence, technologies of fear, J-Horror, new French extremity, cult fandom and paracinema, and media convergence. I think it will be a lot of fun, and I’m hoping we get to watch some horror movies in class too! When I take my Horror Film class, I’m sure I will be writing all about it! Has anyone else taken a Horror Film class?
