Gender Roles in Horror Films 2 Abstract This paper will discuss the research topic for my final paper for Communication Studies 101 and the topic’s importance. It will present the sources supporting a question of whether horror films have created specific gender roles and will show how I will be applying my research to do some content analysis on a movie of my choice.

Gender Roles in Horror Films 3 When watching horror films, the audience can often predict who will be the first to die and who will be the ultimate survivor. This expectancy comes from a long line horror films that emphasize certain characteristics in targeted characters. My research on this topic has resulted in a specific question of the gender roles in Hollywood horrors. Are males and females equally represented as survivors and victims through their differing characteristics and ultimate fate? The sources chosen examine men vs. women as victims and as survivors.
