Just as a reminder, tomorrow at the DePaul University Loop Campus, they will be holding their annual Pop Culture Conference, with their Celebration of Slashers. Starting at 9am and going to 6pm, the day will be filled with movie screenings of titles like Sleepaway Camp, Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare, Candyman, Black Christmas, Halloween, Friday the 13th Part 3 in 3D. There will also be a variety of panels from scholars discussing such topics as Questioning the Slasher, Gods and Monsters: Religion and Politics in the Slasher, Feminism and the Final Girl, Under the Mask: Characters in Slashers, and many more.
I’ll be there wandering around, hitting as many of the panels I can make it to, and maybe even a screening or two. Seeing Friday the 13th Part 3 in 3D is very tempting.
Not to mention that Rachel Talalay, director of Freddy’s Dead, will be the celebrations keynote speaker.
For all the details, the full list of panels and movie screenings, head over to the website HERE. Hope to see you there.
