now at our new location!

SHRIEK: A Women of Horror Film Class has just moved to a new day and venue: second Sundays at Naked City Brewery and Taphouse! SHRIEK is a community education series that examines the roles of women in horror films. In September, discussion leaders and film buffs Evan J. Peterson and Heather Marie Bartels will provide an Asian horror mini-fest, leading the group in a viewing and discussion of two films: Ringu (Sept 11) and A Tale of Two Sisters (Sept 25).
Ringu (Ring) is the story of a journalist who must uncover (ahem) the secret of a video tape that leads to certain death. This is one of the best examples of the Japanese horror trope of cursed media/technology, a widespread trend in J-horror and its Western remakes. Based on Koji Suzuki's horror mystery novels, this iconic film led to the highly successful American adaptation, part of the Western world's J-horror influx of the 21st century. Join us Sunday, September 11! Doors: 6:30pm, Discussion and film: 7:00pm
A Tale of Two Sisters is a Korean film, originally titled Janghwa, Hongryeon, literally translated as "Rose Flower, Red Lotus." Adapted from a Korean folktale, this psychological horror film explores the tensions between two strange girls, their father, and their menacing stepmother. The two films together give us the oppotunity to question, what are the differences between J-horror and K-horror? Are they significant? Join us Sunday, September 25! Doors: 6:30pm, Discussion and film: 7:00pm
