Contrasting Protagonist and Antagonist Masculinities in Popular Films
In this presentation, I will argue that if we look at the masculinity of protagonists and antagonists in popular horror films we will see that antagonists tend to have similar masculine qualities while protagonists tend to have a wide variety of masculine qualities which is important because in horror films, the antagonist is displayed as the source of fear and mystery that makes the audience be drawn to it.
