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.
