Horror: Messaging The Monstrous
The Museum of Modern Art will present Horror: Messaging the Monstrous a film series at The Museum of Modern Art screening June 23rd through September 5th. The 10-week film series includes over 110 features and a selection of short films that capture the horror genre’s uncanny ability to express the lurking fears of a society and the anxieties caused by social, cultural, and political change.
Presented in the Museum’s Titus Theaters in the Black Family Film Center from June 23 through September 5, 2022, Horror: Messaging the Monstrous is organized weekly by fluid themes that shaped how the works were conceived: Slasher, Horror of Place, the Undead, Creatures, Folk Tales, Women Make Horror, Body Horror, Eco Horror, Messaging Race, and Messaging Gender.
The exhibition features films from 19 countries, including genre benchmarks from the United States, Europe, and Asia, starting with Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho (1960) and spanning the 1970s into the 1990s; 21st-century films from emerging voices in Guatemala, Ireland, Iran, Laos, Mexico, South Africa, South Korea, and Zambia; and a focused look at emerging independent women filmmakers making horror over the last decade.
Venue: Museum of Modern Art
11 West 53rd Street, between 5th and 6th Avenues
