In a finale of tactility and colour, the red academy is finally burned down in a hellish conflagration of scarlet flames” (Powell, 2005, p. 145). The idea to be carried forward for ‘a pedagogy of cinema’ is that the tactisigns of ‘Suspiria’ are a means to comprehend the connections between learning and horror. The learning of the film works through a type of sensory overload, and an introduction to the other side of learning efficiency, wherein the action of learning forms reflective and diffracted knots for understanding that go beyond superficial or pre-set learning goals and objectives (see Chapter 7).

In educational research, this form of bodily understanding has gained treatment in term of ‘fullness’, and to the ways in which 24 The fundamentals of horror and learning one may understand learning beyond the narrow confines of psychological analysis or in the broad sweep of sociology (Cole, 2011). The problem with most educational research with respect to learning is that it either comes down to very specific testable hypotheses, for example: motivation, self-concept or the locus of control, or it tries to take into account meta-theoretical constructs such as the recent interest in the notion of a class-based ‘precariat’ and how this affects education (Standing, 2011).

Chapters 4 & 6). There are two major points for ‘a pedagogy of cinema’ that we may draw from the time and movement-images (Figures 9 & 10) in ‘Videodrome’. (1) Capitalism 28 The fundamentals of horror and learning works through screen culture as an inter- and intra-penetrative construct; (2) the screen culture represented in ‘Videodrome’ is itself under pressure from the very forces that construct it. Frederic Jameson (2011), following Deleuze and Guattari (1988) put these two points rather neatly when he said that [‘Videodrome’ shows how] a profoundly illiterate capitalism keeps up the symbolic order only for show.
