Academic Discourse III: Trilogized

Here's what's going to happen. Starting Wednesday, April 2, this blog will be (mostly) dedicated to my independent study course, Advanced Studies in the American Horror Film. The class runs until June 6, which means I will be fully engrossed in the scholarly pursuit of horror films. For now, a reminder of the films I'll be covering in-depth, with the reminder that I narrowed the course to American films released between 1968-2013.

Rosemary's Baby, Night of the Living Dead, The Exorcist, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Halloween, Alien, The Amityville Horror, The Shining, The Thing, Evil Dead 2, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge, Near Dark, Candyman, Scream, The Blair Witch Project, The Ring, Session 9, and The Conjuring. 

I should have a complete reading list to share with you shortly, which I promise will be as awesome as the viewing list. 

I'll be using the blog to work out some of my thoughts and analyses of the films and reading before turning them into academic texts. Trust me, it'll be awesome.

So thanks for sticking with me for the next two-and-a-half months. Feel free to drop me a note at, @Warning_Signs31 on twitter, or you can like our Facebook page here.
