Tuesday will be the first night of SHRIEK: A Women of Horror Film and Discussion Class at Scarecrow Video. We’ll watch Carrie (discussed below in this post), I’ll tell you some things to look for and some things you probably don’t know about the film, and then we’ll have a community discussion.

Seats are expected to go quickly at SHRIEK, but you can reserve your space in the class here.

Stay tuned for next week’s session on Rosemary’s Baby!

The SHRIEK community film class is designed to offer everybody an affordable, accessible way to learn about film and women’s studies while enjoying kick-ass heroines in some of the best horror films ever made. We hope to inspire more women to get involved in film making, especially in the horror genre, where women are severely underrepresented behind the camera.

Green Room (2015)

Jeremy Saulnier’s (Murder Party, Blue Ruin) genius, sadistic take on the siege movie. Best movie of the fest. Punk band. Neo-Nazis. Patrick Stewart. That’s all I’m gonna say.
Oh, and Springsteen is my desert island pick. It’ll make sense when you see the movie.
