The Emotional Life of Horror Films (SCMS panel)

updated: 
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - 10:59am
University of California, Berkeley
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 7, 2018

For all the research that has been conducted into the ideological underpinnings of horror, ideology is not ultimately constitutive of the genre. Emotions are, as producers and fans well know. Yet there has been scant scholarly attention given to emotions (or affects) as such in the genre. Whether the defining generic emotion is taken to be art-horror (Carroll), a feeling of threat (Aldana Reyes), or a looser family of reactions like fear and suspense and disgust (Schneider), there is no escaping emotions.

Carlos Reygadas is a twenty-first century Mexican auteur of international acclaim. His opera prima, Japón (2002), was awarded the Caméra d’Or Special Mention at Cannes. After his second and third features were nominated for the Palme d’Or, his latest feature, Post Tenebras Lux (2012), again nominated for the Palme d’Or, won the award for best director. Reygadas’s poetic and experimental use of images, along with his subversive approach to traditional cinematic representations of Mexican life, has opened up an array of possibilities of interpretation for audiences and critics alike.
