Melodrama (/ˈmeləˌdrämə/) – A sensational dramatic piece with exaggerated characters and exciting events intended to appeal to the emotions. Horror and Melodrama were made for each other; from the legends of old, to the Grand Guignol of France, to the Monster Movies of Universal Studios, no combination of genres has had as large an impact on society as a whole. From classic cinema and literature to Broadway musicals and internet memes, there is hardly a medium this combination hasn’t touched. For the last two years, we have taught students about the horror genre, how it works, and how to put it into practice on film. This year is going to be a little bit different as we will include a live stage element to our showcase as well sure to send shivers up your spine!
