Peter Paik publishes article on Kurosawa’s Cure and recent trends in horror

Congratulations to Associate Professor Peter Y. Paik, whose article “The Death of Horror: On Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s Cure” was published in Situations: Cultural Studies in the Asian Context, vol. 9, no. 2, 2016. The essay, which appears in a special volume on Horror and the Global for which Paik was also a Guest Editor, makes the case that Cure, which depicts the loss of the capacity to feel horror at acts of violence, anticipates recent trends in horror film.
