Many of the earliest film experiments were later assigned to the horror genre. Horror nails the viewer to his seat, first by the temptation to look and then the relief that it was all fiction.

Not to mention the many parasites that powers the horror genre, from vampires to aliens to zombies. In this program, we look at how experimental filmmakers operate the horror genre, disassembling it to tinker again as if a new Frankenstein.
