From Romero to Get Out, or: how Horror helped wake me up to the American Nightmare

Body

The horror film is often dismissed as ‘just entertainment’. The genre is too trashy, too gory – it is not to be taken seriously, and it is certainly not art. In this illustrated talk, horror specialist Dr Lucy Fife Donaldson (University of St Andrews) will contextualise our retrospective strand, The American Nightmare, tracing its continued significance to contemporary horror. We will explore horror’s power to reveal the problems of society, the costs of trying to be normal, and the real reasons we should be scared.
