Watch Scary Movies for Credit at Thorneloe this Spring!

April 09, 2018

Thorneloe University is pleased to offer CINE 3906EL 01 – Special Topics: Scary Movies this spring, with instructor Benjamin Paquette.

Employing formal, socio-historical and industrial perspectives, this course attempts to define the scary movie (AKA, the horror film), and determine the basis for its widespread and enduring appeal. The relationship between the scary movie and narrative is analyzed, as is the evolution of the scary movie from the silent era to today from a selection of motion pictures from around the world. There are weekly screenings of a variety of films followed by discussions.

When: Mondays and Thursdays, 6:00 – 8:50 PM, April 30th to June 7th, 2018
Where: Ernie Checkeris Theatre (T120), Thorneloe University on the Laurentian Campus (Free parking in General Parking on the south side of Thorneloe)
