Defining the Horror genre, exploring typical tropes and motifs, such as the haunted house, monsters, zombies and serial killers. Also looking at the principles and logic behind the horror film - some sort of transgression (knowing something not supposed to know) leading to terrible consequences. Questioning why we watch horror films - cathartic enactment and overcoming of society's worst nightmares. Thus the sociological interest in horror films - and how they portray society's fears, varying according to the age.
