Duration: 330 mins
The horror genre is decidedly gendered, using a set of recurring tropes and conventions such as the ‘scream queen’ and the masked male killer. From 1978’s Halloween and I Spit on Your Grave through to the latest instalment in the Halloween series, tutor Dr Connor Winterton explores how horror films represent gender and sexuality; and why gender and sexuality are so integral to these films, their popularity, and their ‘scare factor’.
