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
Face to Face
The Passion of Anna
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
are good resources.
Also check out Sjostrom's The Phantom Carriage
, which was quite influential on Bergman.
