    SATANIC PANIC: POP-CULTURAL PARANOIA IN THE 1980s

    In the 1980s, everywhere you turned there were warnings about a widespread evil conspiracy to indoctrinate the vulnerable through the media they consumed. This percolating cultural hysteria, now known as the “Satanic Panic,” was both illuminated and propagated through almost every pop culture pathway in the 1980s, from heavy metal music to Dungeons & Dragons role playing games, Christian comics, direct-to-VHS scare films, pulp paperbacks, Saturday morning cartoons and TV talk shows.

    Relive the era with the book's co-editor Kier-La Janisse, who will present a talk and clip show based on Spectacular Optical’s new book Satanic Panic: Pop-Cultural Paranoia in the 1980s. The event also doubles as the Hobart launch of the book and a limited number of copies will be available to purchase.

    Date: 1 December 2015

    Time: 8 pm – 9.30 pm (doors open at 7.30)
