Kicking off our Winter 2017 semester, Miskatonic-Montréal goes back to “basics” with this six-week course taught by five different instructors. In the first class, all five instructors will weigh in on Alfred Hitchcock’s PSYCHO (1960) as an urtext for the Slasher film, with an eye towards the later film they have selected. From there, each instructor will trace a Slasher genealogy extending from PSYCHO’s monstrous feminine(s) through a host of the subgenre’s most influential (or notorious) entries.
24 January: PSYCHO (1960, Alfred Hitchcock)
31 January: HALLOWEEN (1978, John Carpenter)
7 February: FRIDAY THE 13TH (1980, Sean S. Cunningham)
14 February: A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2: FREDDY’S REVENGE (1985, Jack Sholder)
21 February: SLEEPAWAY CAMP (1983, Robert Hiltzik)
28 February: EYES OF LAURA MARS (1978, Irvin Kershner)
All Miskatonic-Montréal courses are hosted by Microcinema Être (6029a, ave du Parc). A suggested donation of $7 per class can be paid at the door. A discounted rate of $60 for the entire semester is also available.
