Science on Screen®:
The Blair Witch Project – 20th Anniversary Screening

Featuring an introduction by science-of-fear researcher Margee Kerr
The End of the World as We Know It: The Science of Fear & Horror Movies
Sat., June 1 at 7 pm

From Y2K fears to the explosion of reality television, science-of-fear researcher Margee Kerr will discuss the sociocultural factors that gave rise to the best horror movies of the late ‘90s, including how and why The Blair Witch Project became a box office hit.

In the film, found video footage tells the tale of three film students – Heather Donahue, Joshua Leonard, and Michael C. Williams – who travel to a small town to collect documentary footage about the Blair Witch, a legendary local murderer. Over the course of several days, the students interview townspeople and gather clues to support the tale’s veracity, but the project takes a frightening turn when the students lose their way in the woods and begin hearing horrific noises. With The Rangos’ giant screen and premium surround sound, you will feel the fear with much greater intensity than when this film first hit theaters.

About the speaker:

Kerr is a sociologist and author of SCREAM: Chilling Adventures in the Science of Fear named as a must read by The Washington Post. Dr. Kerr’s research at the University of Pittsburgh focuses on how and why people engage with “fun-scary” experiences like haunted attractions, paranormal investigations, and thrill rides. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, Parade, Atlantic Monthly, and NPR’s Science Friday, among other media outlets.

About Science on Screen:

The Science on Screen program pairs screenings of classic, cult, science fiction, and documentary films with lively presentations by notable experts from the world of science and technology. Each film is used as a jumping-off point for a speaker to introduce current research or technological advances in a manner that engages audiences of all backgrounds. Science on Screen is an initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre, with major support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
