Dr. Prida’s Horror Show is Oct. 29 at Hop ‘N Moose

This looks interesting: the College of St. Joseph is holding a horror show on October 29th down at the Hop’n Moose Brewing company in Rutland. This appears to be a presentation on popular culture and some of the deeper roots of horror in America.

From ghouls and ghosts and long-leggedy beasties to things that go bump in the night, CSJ’s mad professor of English and pop culture will take a fun look at what scares us the most and why we love it.

Just in time for Halloween, College of St. Joseph presents Dr. Prida’s Horror Show at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 29, 2014, at Hop ‘N Moose in Downtown Rutland. Enjoy good food and friends while gaining the forbidden knowledge behind the reasons clowns freak us out and we wonder aloud about the Zombie Apocalypse.

CSJ Associate Professor Dr. Jonas Prida will present topics that include the culture of horror in the U.S. and elsewhere; scary icons such as dolls, clowns, and monsters; and discussions with the audience about the most frightening books and movies of all time.

Why are American Horror Story and Walking Dead such popular television shows these days? Why do we love horror movies and Halloween? Jonas is just dying to tell you.

The presentation is free and open to all who dare to attend. Summon your friends, because Hop ‘N Moose will create a special, themed cocktail for the event.
