Gender Roles in Horror Films

We know that horror can be empowering or misogynist toward women from the final girl to disposable victim.

The Women of Hannibal

Bryan Fuller’s adaption of Thomas Harris’ novels was groundbreaking and a near instant cult classic. It has changed broadcast television forever by depicting many taboos previously censored by the FCC. Hannibal not only broke boundaries with its gore and violence, but it also had strong and compelling female characters not often seen on TV. This panel discusses what made these characters so unique.
