MSJ Issue 7.2 (Winter 2022): Horror

Issue 7.2 is a special themed edition guest edited by Dr. Michael Howarth from Missouri Southern State University. Focusing on the horror genre, it showcases the impact of the genre on popular culture and its transmedial expressions. Amongst 7.2’s diverse pieces is a fortieth anniversary retrospective of John Carpenter’s The Thing; an interview with Bram Stoker’s great-grandnephew, Dacre Stoker; and an exploration of domestic abuse between Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining and Bryan Bertino’s The Dark and the Wicked. Another highlight of the issue is a review of the 2022 Vancouver Horror Show Festival by KPU's resident zombie specialist Dr. Kelly Doyle, who returned as a judge and featured speaker on the VHS Talks “The Female Gaze” panel.
