A History of Horror Films

October 27, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Jay Morris, Dir. of Media at Ohio University Eastern, will present “Screaming in the Dark: A Brief History of the Horror Film.” From the silent films like “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari,” to the Universal monsters of the 1930’s to the 70’s slasher films and today’s gorefests… the horror film endures in American pop culture. Morris will explore why, using film clips and a fun mini-quiz to test your knowledge of all things that go bump in the night on the big screen. Morris has been teaching a horror film course at Ohio Univ. since 1992 and has been a horror movie fan since the days of “Chiller Theater” and “Night of the Living Dead.”
