For the first of our Women in Horror Month events, we are very privileged to have guest programmer Terri Berends stepping in for the night and bringing her wealth of horror knowledge and strong feminist views to the Melbourne Horror Film Society - well, she always brings that when attending screenings but will be taking centre stage to do so, for the second consecutive year for WIHM.
This year, Terri has expertly selected Hitchcock's SPELLBOUND (1945), and before you start writing any comments, yes we know Hitchcock is a male; Terri will be focusing on many key concepts of women in horror, including the depiction of women (now and then); the film being based on story written by a female (under a pen name); psychoanalysis; and the casting of "controversial" actress Ingrid Bergman.
We absolutely can't wait for this screening and hope you're excited also 🖤
Bob, David, Adam & Mel
