INTERVIEW: WHAT HORROR REVEALS ABOUT US
Dr. Scahill was recently approached by the University of Colorado's "City Stories" desk to speak to his specialization in horror cinema and social history. City Stories asks professors to address contemporary issues through the lens of their research, and in this edition Dr. Scahill examines the history of the horror genre, its potential for social change, and the postcolonial politics of the two Colorado-set horror films, The Shining and Dr. Sleep.
