"Jesuit Spirituality in Horror Cinema"

Wednesday, October 16, 2013 at 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Kevin Wetmore, Chair of Theater Arts, willtalk about representations of Jesuit spirituality in horror cinema. From "The Exorcist" (which had two Jesuits as advisors who also acted in the film) to more recent fare such as "The Devil Inside," Hollywood both misrepresents Jesuits and paradoxically offers a way of understanding Ignatian Spiritualtiy as a means to combat evil in the modern world.

Loved how thoughtful all Kevin's explanations were, it made me scripture and horror films in a whole new way.
