International Cult Horror of the 1970s
The culture and turmoil of the 1970s made the decade a thriving time for cinema. While films like THE EXORCIST, CARRIE, and HALLOWEEN killed at the box office, the international films of the era are lesser known to American audiences.
From British Hammer films to Italian Giallo to Australian Ozploitation, this course will provide a deep dive into international horror films released in the ‘70s—cult films that would go on to inspire American classics. This four-week, discussion-based class, facilitated by instructor Kia Anne Geraths, will focus on a different international horror film each week: HATCHET FOR THE HONEYMOON (Italy), DRACULA AD 1972 (Great Britain), HAUSU (Japan), and PATRICK (Australia). Classes will be held weekly in October.
