Description

CHECK IT OUT - Video Course Description!

Horror is full of creepy children; they represent one of the most popular and often-used tropes in the genre. But why are they so effective? Why do they so deeply unsettle us? These are the questions this minicourse sets out to explore. We’ll spend time with some classic creepy kids—Regan from The Exorcist and Rhoda from The Bad Seed, for example—and I expect you’ll make the acquaintance of some creepy children new to you, who, once you get to know them, will (like those twins girls from The Shining) stay with you, for ever, and ever . . . and ever! We’ll also read a little horror theory to help us understand why these kids get under our skin. Our texts will be in a variety of mediums—novels, short stories, films, and at least one classic Twilight Zone episode.

Course Requirements:

Work includes short weekly low-stakes writing assignments and three short papers with flexible deadlines.
