    Last night!


    The horror genre has a tremendous r ange, reinventing itself in different forms for different decades and audie nces. It's tricky work disentangling classic horror from more modern, often gory developments in the genre. Take a peek at some key moments in the evol ution of the horror genre with Kelly Kirshtner's Horror Classic, a six week mini series featuring a selection of both classic and modern films that ten d towards the scary rather than the gruesome. Each screening will be introdu ced and discussed by Professor Kelly Kirshtner of UWM's Film Department.
