Beyond the Scares: Emotional Catharsis & Healing in Horror
45 min.
The fundamental aim of Horror may be to thrill, spook, and scare -- but like any genre, great horror can also transcend its conventions, providing a unique kind of emotional catharsis by serving as a “safe” space to process real-life fears and anxieties. Join the creatives behind TVs creepiest fare for a conversation about using horror/genre elements to subvert audience expectations, explore complex concepts like grief and trauma, and restore agency to characters that have traditionally been depicted as "victims."
