The Supernatural and the Movies

How did the horror genre in movies arise and become so popular?  :vampire:

Plotting its emergence first in literature, and later in movies, David Richards traces the development of cinema as a successful outlet for horror material, discusses the transition from rational to supernatural antagonists, and evaluates the impact of horror and the supernatural on society.  :bug:

After Richards presents an overview with movie clips, a panel discussion with special guests having expertise in the genre will follow.

David Richards, who works for a manufacturer of equipment for the film exhibition industry :coolsmile: , is a member of the Independent Investigations Group of the Center and the coordinator of CFI’s Orange County Community.
