Time For Scream 2

Essential Question. Does Scream 2 accurately point out that Greek Tragedies were the first horror films.

Tragedy makes up for its lack of graphic displays of violence through its use of the ekkyklema, a mechanism used to wheel dead bodies onto the stage.

The ekkyklema is often used to evoke an emotional reaction from the Chorus, the internal audience of Greek tragedy. But the thrill and shock of seeing the gruesome bodies is clearly also aimed at the theater audience. The sight of Cassandra and Agamemnon’s bodies at the end of Aeschylus’ Agamemnon shocks the Chorus and prompts them to rebel against Clytemnestra, the murderer. The external audience, however, already knows that the characters are dead. The effect the ekkyklema produces for them is revulsion at the butchered bodies.

The miasma of the House of Prescott

Ok so I think an underated element of the scream movies is that they often present a character doing something smart. CiP gail in the recording studio

LOL Owen Wilson

So the commentary on Black horror cinema is interesting in the context of horror noire


Also I love Jamie Kennedy. Prove me wrong
