Vampires, werewolves, witches, aliens, serial killers, mad scientists, runaway AI, poltergeists, ghosts, demons, giants, zombies, killer clowns, scary children—these are just some of the monsters lurking on the edge of our imagination and at the center of our movie screens. Why are we fascinated by such creatures, and why do we fear them? This course seeks to answer these and other questions through the lens of mimetic theory.
