For this assignment you will compare two films: one from our weekly in-class screening and one from those available to stream on reserve from the library.
The films are â€œmatchedâ€ up per week. For example in week four you would compare Halloween(1978) with The Texas Chainsaw Massacreï¼ˆ1974ï¼‰. Compare the stories. Discuss thematic and stylistic similarities or differences. Is one film stronger than the other or a better representation of the sub-genre? Can you see differences in direction? Would you have preferred the opposite film to screen in class? Does it make sense to pair up these two films?
