Beschrei­bung

Horror is a gen­re that is often seen as infe­ri­or com­pa­red to others such as Dra­ma and
Come­dy. But nowa­days it’s not sole reser­ved for gorehounds and other fol­lo­wers of this sub­cul­tu­re.

Increa­sing appre­cia­ti­on among movie experts, sci­en­tists and socie­ty result in gro­wing soci­al accep­tan­ce and rising audi­ence num­bers. Not only the atti­tu­de towards the gen­re has chan­ged sin­ce the ethic deba­tes of the 80s and 90s, but also the inte­rest regar­ding the topic seems to increa­se con­sistent­ly. No other gen­re in the histo­ry of movies (may­be apart from the por­no­gra­phy indus­try) gene­ra­tes such a big fan cul­tu­re inclu­ding maga­zi­nes, forums, fan clubs and fes­ti­vals all over the world.

In the area of wes­tern Aus­tria though hor­ror seems still to be in the fledglings sta­ges. The inten­ti­on of this bache­lor the­sis the­re­fo­re was to exami­ne the phe­no­me­non of hor­ror in com­bi­na­ti­on with a clo­ser look at film fes­ti­vals. Based on this foun­da­ti­on the goal was to deve­lop a fic­tio­n­al hor­ror film fes­ti­val design based on the gathe­red infor­ma­ti­on and the drawn con­clu­si­ons of the theo­re­ti­cal part covering hor­ror, the fasci­na­ti­on for it and it’s cul­tu­re.
