Talk on Japanese horror films "Naming Fears," April 7 at Pitt.


The University of Pittsburgh's Asian Studies Center will host Dr. Michael Crandol and his talk "Naming Fears" online on April 7.
Dr. Crandol will share insights about his latest publication, Ghost in the Well (Bloomsbury 2021), the first study to provide a full history of the horror genre in Japanese cinema, from the silent era to Classical period movies such as Nakagawa Nobuo’s Tokaido Yotusya kaidan (1959) to the contemporary global popularity of J-horror pictures like the Ring and Ju-on franchises.
The talk starts at 12:00 pm and is free and open to the public, though registration is required.
