Finals Week: 'The Final Girl: A few thoughts on Feminism and Horror'

The Final Girl: A Few Thoughts on Feminism and Horror By Donato Totaro

One of the more important, if not groundbreaking, accounts/recuperations of the horror film from a feminist perspective is the 1993 Carol Clover's "Men, Women, and Chainsaws". One of the book's major points concerns the structural positioning of what she calls the Final Girl in relation to spectatorship. While most theorists label the horror film as a male-driven/male-centered genre, Clover points out that in most horror films, especially the slasher film, the audience, male and female, is structurally 'forced' to identify with the resourceful young female (the Final Girl) who survives the serial attacker and usually ends the threat (until the sequel anyway.) So while the narratively dominant killer's subjective point of view may be male within the narrative,the male viewer is still rooting for the Final Girl to overcome the killer. We can see this »

"10 Rillington Place" Now At Film Forum, New York

By David Savage

Normal 0 false false false En-us X-none X-none MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Sir Richard Attenborough's directorial career is studded with such achievements as Gandhi, A Bridge Too Far, Magic and Chaplin, among others, but his role as an actor has been no less affecting, if under-appreciated. His performances such films as The Sand Pebbles (1966) and Conduct Unbecoming (1975) have played an integral part in making those classics. Even in supporting roles, such as 1993's Jurassic Park, his presence lends the film an air of gravitas and credibility that few other actors can bring. However, one of his finest lead roles goes rarely seen these days: as infamous British serial killer John Christie in 10 Rillington Place (1970), directed by Richard Fleischer and co-starring a young John Hurt. Currently screening through July 2nd in a newly restored 35mm print at New York's Film Forum, this film version of a true story is a definite don't-miss, »
