Notes

Greek Tragedy and the Scream Franchise

At Gayly Dreadful, Jared Charles considers, “Greek Tragedy in Horror Exemplified in the Scream Franchise.” “While today’s horror can often contradict the intentions of the Greek tragedy – particularly the genre that people often refer to as torture-porn – there are many horror movies that pay homage to the significance of the Greek tragedy and how that affected the way stories are told in modernity. On a side note, many mainstream movies are praised for the way their stories are grounded in reality; often producing catharsis within themselves.”
