Hennebach Program: ‘Fear & Nature: Environmental Science Fiction & Ecohorror Film’ Presented By Christy Tidwell

Hill Hall 920 15th St., Golden, CO

Science fiction and horror films frequently reflect (and sometimes shape) our cultural anxieties about nature. As we work to respond to contemporary environmental issues such as pollution and mass extinction, these pop culture narratives take up such issues both directly and indirectly. Some horror films, for instance, imagine monstrous animals attacking humans (Jaws) or reveal […]
