Bloodlines: Horror and the Family

The family unit has been at he heart of both salvation and destruction in recent horror films. Analyze some recent horror movies revolving around questions of family (familial curses in Hereditary, family-making in It) and discuss how the family unit can be a source of both fear and strength in these films

  • This is a really intriguing topic and can lead to various areas of discussion both from the psychological and physical dimensions of horror that can surround questions involving ones family. I think it would be awesome to also consider how family can also be a means to exploring the haunting of one's individual psyche and identity and their subsequent growth. – ajaymanuel 4 years ago
