The horror film stands at the core of the body genres; however, in 2013 it may be hard for us to experience visceral impact from films made at a time that, in some ways, looked so different from our own. This course will survey the genre from 1896 to 1968, the year that the rating system was introduced in the United States. Yet our scope will be international, tackling not only Hollywood's Universal Horror, but the UK's Hammer Horror, Mexican Horror, Les yeux sans visage (1960), Italy's Mario Bava, and precursors to J-Horror.
