Hollywood Worldviews: Horror, A Biblical Genre

Check out this YouTube video on Horror: A Biblical Genre.

Some people think the Bible is a Veggie Tales cartoon, or Little House on the Prairie – safe, and family friendly “Christian” genre. But they’re wrong. Bloody gore, bone chilling fear, serial killers, Vampires, zombies, werewolves and other mutant monsters are in the Bible. No, this is not an exaggeration for a headline. See for yourself. I prove it in this presentation.

In this condensed version of my talk, I explore the genre of horror and explain the 4 ways that horror is used redemptively in the Bible and in movies. Horror reveals man’s sinful nature, exposes the consequences of sin, uncovers man’s spiritual pride, and expresses social commentary. Powerpoint visuals.

This is a shortened version without film clips. Get the full version here, complete with film clips.
