Horror films are designed to incite fear, panic, revulsion, and dread in their audiences. These films often bring to the surface hidden fears, while also giving audience members a sense of relief from strong or repressed emotions. In Can’t Look Away, we’ll be using the horror genre to explore our own reactions to horror film through analysis of film props, sound, lighting, and design. We’ll then create our own short horror stories, using elements from the museum and your own imagination.
