ENG-227 - Modern Horror

3 credits

The horror genre is characteristic of both fiction-writing and film. In both mediums, authors look deep into the psyche of our culture to find our darkest fears. Arguably, no author does this better than the world-renowned author Stephen King. Often referred to as "The Master of Horror," this course offers an in-depth look into Stephen King's writing style and his influence upon both the literary and film worlds today. Students will analyze his works to uncover the literary devices that King uses to tap into what makes us most afraid.
