On this panel two writers who have been life-long horror fans discuss the trope of the ‘masked killer’ in horror. From Lon Chaney Sr’s stunning facial transformations, through to the masked killer in the slasher subgenre, the masked face in horror has been both a point of connection and disconnection: visible – sometimes even strikingly outrageous or flamboyant – and concealing. Our focus will turn to the different types of mask used in slashers, from the ‘featureless’ (e.g. Halloween’s Myers) to the comically grotesque (e.g. a Groucho Marx mask in Terror Train, 1980). Films discussed will include: theHalloween series, Stagefright (1987)the Friday the 13th series, The Prowler (1981)the Nightmare on Elm Street series, My Bloody Valentine (1981), and many more.
