Shriek is a recurring film class about women in horror (taught by Evan J. Peterson and Heather Marie Bartels) that features screenings as well as engaged, thoughtful, and hilarious discussions. On March 12, they'll host a screening of the 1973 version of The Wicker Man, which is host Evan J. Peterson's favorite film, and was described by Cinefantastique as "the Citizen Kane of horror movies." On March 26, they'll follow it up with a "Heckle Night" screening of the 2006 version. When it came out, Lindy West wrote this about the remake: "Obscene anti-feminist propaganda that it is, The Wicker Man is almost too retarded to be offensive. The women are mysterious and tricky and beguiling, like evil vaginas. Malus is strong and thrusty and straightforward, like a hero-penis."
