ASIA 266 - Genre: Asian Horror

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
(Same as FILM 266 ) This course examines contemporary Asian horror. Using a variety of critical perspectives, we will deconstruct the pantheon of vampires, monsters, ghosts, and vampire ghosts inhabiting such diverse regions as Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, and the Philippines to explore constructions of national/cultural identity, gender, race, class, and sexuality. We will ground these observations within a discussion of the nature of horror and the implications of horror as a trans/national genre. Sophia Harvey.

Prerequisite(s): FILM 175  or FILM 210 , and permission of the instructor.

Two 75-minute periods, plus outside screenings.
