SATANIC PANIC: POP-CULTURAL PARANOIA IN THE 1980s

In the 1980s, everywhere you turned there were warnings about a widespread evil conspiracy to indoctrinate the vulnerable through the media they consumed. This percolating cultural hysteria, now known as the “Satanic Panic,” was both illuminated and propagated through almost every pop culture pathway in the 1980s, from heavy metal music to Dungeons & Dragons role playing games, Christian comics, direct-to-VHS scare films, pulp paperbacks, Saturday morning cartoons and TV talk shows.

Relive the era with the book's co-editor Kier-La Janisse, who will present a talk and clip show based on Spectacular Optical’s new book Satanic Panic: Pop-Cultural Paranoia in the 1980s. The event also doubles as the Hobart launch of the book and a limited number of copies will be available to purchase.

Date: 1 December 2015

Time: 8 pm – 9.30 pm (doors open at 7.30 pm)

Cost: $10 at the door or online

Venue: Pop-Up Theatre No. 5, Macquarie Point

Organiser

Stranger With My Face International Film Festival

Stranger With My Face Horror Film Festival is based in Hobart, Tasmania. Deriving its name from the young adult novel by Lois Duncan, it explores the idea of ‘the horror within’ and promotes discussion around genre and gender, from ghost stories to gore, from art house to exploitation. SWMF has a particular focus on female directors working in horror and related genres and highlights bold new work by independent filmmakers.

"Nothing short of magical. It was transformative for me. I think what is being done there, and celebrated there and made possible as a result, is the best I have seen at any fest… I want to be there every year."—Jennifer Lynch, guest filmmaker

"This event fills a gap that has been largely ignored by other film festivals....” —Screen Hub
