UMASS Boston Popular Culture in America Scream 1996 Film Analysis Discussion

University of Massachusetts - Boston

Question Description

I need support with this Film question so I can learn better.

Read the uploaded file, watch the movie Scream(1996), and then answer the following question.

The film for the week is a horror film from the 90s many of you may have seen before. Using a more critical viewing eye, I want you to think about how the genre conventions play out in the film, and also how gender, sexuality, reality tv culture, teenage culture, and the threat of sexual violence against women play out in the film. Are the things we see play out in the film critiques of American Culture in general? Why or why not? Develop your Primary Post this week with those themes in mind, and be sure to provide specific examples from the film.

200-300 Words. Quote only from the movie and PDF.
