Augsburg prof uses “Night of the Living Dead” for course on Religion in the Movies

Augsburg prof uses "Night of the Living Dead" for course on Religion in the Movies

The Rochester Post-Bulletin ran an article about Prof. Philip Quanbeck’s Religion in the Movies course, which features (in the mix of \~30 films) Romero’s classic Night of the Living Dead. The use of horror films as a framework for discussing faith is always of interest to me. At the Cornerstone festival Imaginarium horror has been a recurring feature (monsters and nostalgia in 2007, Day of the Dead in 2006, Carnival of Souls in 2002, and 1995’s Monster Fan 2000), and Mars Hill Church occasionally discusses horror films for its Film & Theology series. Do folks out there have any others worth linking to?

Anyway… props to [Dr. Quanbeck][]. Read the full article, [*Local professor teaches ‘Religion at the Movies’* at postbulletin.com ????][an article about Prof. Philip Quanbeck’s *Religion in the Movies* course]
