1. Early on in this segment, the documentary’s host, Mark Gatiss,makes a distinction between horror films that rely on the supernatural and those that do not. Why do you think he does so? Which of the two types of horror films to you think is the most frightening? Why? 2. Tobe Hooper, director of The Chainsaw Massacre says “death is the ultimate monster.” Gatiss later alludes to this later on when he says that with age, we “begin to fear our own mortality.” What do you think the men mean? Think of the seven theses in the “Monster Culture” section of our textbook. Does death fit into any of these statements? Why might you think so? 3. Near the end of the documentary, Gatiss makes a comment about the original Halloween marking the end of “horror’s last sustained period of creativity.” He also says that most modern directors are “content to follow zombie-like in the footsteps of” the directors who had success in the past with only a few exceptions, and he worries for horror’s future audiences. Do you agree or disagree with him? Why?
