Storyline

Horror films are pornographic and eroticise the abject. Yet, they relieve, they are humorous and challenge cultural taboos. The phallus, indicator of social power, becomes a flexible object in horror: The chainsaw in the hands of the final girl allows a different look on the cultural norms of Western societies - the genre undermines heterosexual attribution. "Science Of Horror" is the first documentary to analyze horror film from the perspective of feminist film critique. Their assumptions are proven with citations from well-known horror films and are confronted with statements of renowned filmmakers. Women are horror's favourite victims but also its heroes. Written by Nina Berfelde
