Williams’ Applications

Leave a comment

When I read Williams’ section on the girl-victim of horror and the bisexual and adrogenous components, I couldn’t stop thinking of that scene in Scary Movie in which a VERY sexualized Carmen Electra grabs the banana on a table full of other weapons. Seriously, I tried to think of other good examples but in an unfortunately this was the only one I could come up with. In a way this is in line with the phallic symbols that the “girl-victim” (606) grabs which occurs in Williams’ horror film examples. But when thinking about the fact that the Scary Movie series is a total satire ABOUT traditional horror films, it begins to question Williams’ arguments. What happens with comedic horror?
