Transnational horror and Guillermo del Toro’s transnational monsters | Free public talk from the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries

University of Portsmouth Eldon Building
Room 0.20
Eldon Building, Winston Churchill Avenue, Portsmouth

In this talk Dr Deborah Shaw and Dr Simon Hobbs will consider horror as a transnational cinematic genre, with different countries becoming known for certain sub-genres. They will move between the expressionistic tales of Germany, Italian cannibal films, American slashers, and Asian ghost movies. They will then draw from Guillermo del Toro’s rich world of monsters created from fantasy and horror imagery around the world, reading them as timeless illustrations of both human kindness and evil.

The CCI Public Talks are a series of free lectures delivered by members of the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries at the University of Portsmouth, organised specially for Portsmouth DarkFest 2018.
