Shriek: Women Of Horror makes its way to Central Cinema for a special screening of an 80's horror classic.
Take a closer look at Freddy's first fright flick from a feminist viewpoint as hosts Heather Marie Bartels, Megan Peck, and Evan J. Peterson discuss how heroine Nancy Thompson influenced the genre. Plus, they'll explore how Wes Craven contributed to the "Final Girl" character trope, from Nightmare to Scream, with female leads who fight back.
Then, we'll watch the original Elm Street entry on the big screen because it's awesome.
