Jason Zinoman - Shock Value

Jul 28 2011 7:00 pm
Jul 28 2011 8:00 pm

Through a combination of Zinoman’s critic’s eye and dogged reporting, Shock Value looks in depth at the genre of Modern Horror film from the years roughly between 1968 and 1979, when a handful of outcasts and oddballs revolutionized the industry.

NOTE: Jason’s event will feature a screening of two rarely seen short films, Bloodbath (directed by Dan O'Bannon) and Foster's Release (by Terrence Winkless, starring O'Bannon). Both movies are from the USC Film School in the late 60s, a fertile time for genre movies. The screening will follow the Q&A, and last approximately 25 minutes.
