I'll be writing a Masters' thesis about Bergman movies and horror. Initial plans are to write about Fanny and Alexander (obviously), The Seventh Seal, and probably Hour of the Wolf. I'm so excited. If any of you have any thoughts on this, please let me know. Nothing is stupid. Maybe other movies I haven't thought about yet? Or books about Bergman I could look at over the summer? I'm so excited!

Some others you may want to check out, they incorporate horror elements to varying degrees:

The Serpent's Egg
The Rite
Face to Face
The Passion of Anna
Persona
The Virgin Spring


As genre films, these are all stretching the definition of "horror". But I think you may find them useful. (it might be worth noting that Last House on the Left is essentially a remake of Virgin Spring)

Bergman's own books The Magic Lantern and Images are good resources.

Also check out Sjostrom's The Phantom Carriage, which was quite influential on Bergman.

Fantastic that's exactly what I was looking for. My advisor and I talked about The Virgin Spring and Persona as well, I think I'll be watching and rewatching these over summer. I've got The Magic Lantern, too. I'll check out those other books for sure. Thanks!

It should be a lot of fun. I'm also taking a horror film class with my adviser over the summer, which I'll be sure to report about here. She's as big a horror nerd as I am, and she's got a bunch of academic articles to supplement the movies, which I'm super excited about. Gah! I can't wait.

So I signed up for my classes for my first semester at OSU and I'm super pumped. One will be on the history of animation (An overview of the art in animation. This course will study the history and theory of Hollywood studio animation, world animation, and contemporary independent animation. Course will provide an understanding of the fundamental dramatic narratives found in animation.) and the other will be a film history class that will focus on how to do archival research in film. I'm super pumped about both of these because they're both something that I have an interest in but know relatively little about. I have a pretty solid grasp on how to do archival research for literature, but I really don't know what I'm doing when it comes to film and that subject. I'm sure I'll be watching and reading some great things, too.

I assume at some point there will be a list of the films that will be covered in each course. I'd love to know what's on it.

You'll know when I know. I might do a marathon thread for each class where appropriate.

That's awesome! I expect you'll love the programming at the Wexner Center for the Arts. I certainly don't make it down there nearly as often as I'd like to.

Yeah, for sure. The animation class is actually being held there, so I'll be there quite a bit.

I want to see the list too. You're still taking classes?
