Belcourt Theater presents FRIDAY THE 13TH: Psychology of Fear

Saturday, October 14, 2017,
  • Location: Belcourt Theatre, 2102 Belcourt Avenue, Nashville, TN 37212

Part of Belcourt Theatre's Midnight Movies.

It's a shame what happened at Camp Crystal Lake all those years ago—that poor little boy drowning. And then those unsolved murders... But enough time has passed, it seems, to open the place back up for a whole new generation for whom the Voorhees family unpleasantness is just an old rumor wrapped in a mystery. But you see, there's a reason they call the place Camp Blood. And Crystal Lake will run red when Friday the 13th rolls around…

In association with the Murfreesboro Discovery Center's Tennessee STEAM festival, Friday's screening includes an introduction and demo on the psychology of fear from David Zald, Cornelius Vanderbilt Professor of Psychology and professor of psychiatry at Vanderbilt University and director of Vanderbilt's Affective Neuroscience Laboratory. Before the film, a lucky audience member will be hooked up to psychophysiological recording equipment, which will monitor their body’s reaction to fear (during a short, specially selected clip), followed by a live analysis of the results by Zald.

About David Zald: David Zald, Ph.D. is a Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at Vanderbilt University, where he also directs the Affective Neuroscience Laboratory and the Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience for Undergraduates. Dr. Zald’s primary research aims to understand how the brain processes emotion and how individual differences in specific brain circuits are related to personality, emotional experience and mental health problems.
