SPAN 1111 - Hispanic Horror Cinema
*Hispanic Horror Cinema* In this course we will study horror films from Spain, Mexico, the United States, Argentina, and Cuba in order to understand how Hispanic filmmakers employ intertextual horror esthetics to create genre films. The films we will consider focus on zombies (/Rec/, /Planet Terror/, /Juan of the Dead/), vampires (/Cronos/, /Vampires in Havana/), ghosts (/The Devil's Backbone/, /The Others/), and misogynist stalkers (/Thesis/, /Sleep Tight/). We will discuss both the conservative and transgressive aspects of this emerging genre in transnational Hispanic cinema, focusing specifically on how these films reflect the evolving political and ideological dynamics of their respective national cultures. This course will be taught in Spanish.
