Abstract

Using the key concept of fear as a historical category, this paper investigates the ancient myth of Gorgon in seven contemporary movies and in a few teen movies . At the center of my critical analysis there is the interdependence between the negative emotions, the uses of this archetypal image and the research about history gender imaginary. Key words: Gorgon as femal monster; fear; horror film; history gender imaginary.
