History of Horror Films

Take a guided tour of the century-long history and evolution of horror films with Elliot Passantino.  Learn about the genre’s gothic literary foundation in the Grand Guignol, the early silent film achievements of Thomas Edison, Georges Melies and Louis Fuillade, and the classic films of the Universal, Val Lewton, William Castle and Hammer era.  Extensive movie clips and still images will enrich this spotlight on the careers and films that defined the genre, and capitalized on the low-budget innovation of dedicated movie-makers over the genre’s long history.
