Canuxploitation Class – Echoes From the Sleep Room

Next weekend I’ll be taking Canuxploitation on the road to Montreal for something a little bit different–I’m going to be offering a class as part of the Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies at Blue Sunshine.

My topic is “Echoes from the Sleep Room: Medical Terror in Canadian Horror Cinema” and I’ll be discussing Canada’s dark history of human experimentation and how this theme has manifested in our films over the last 50 years. I’m going to be showing clips from Canadian horror movies both well known and obscure, including a screening of Jean Claude-Lord’s MINDFIELD in its entirety.

Here’s a trailer for the event, which takes place November 19 + 20th:
