Horror Film Paper

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 “matched” up per week.  For example in week four you would compare Halloween(1978) with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre(1974).  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?
