Peter Suderman and Jesse Walker help us dissect both films as part of a larger discussion about how horror movies tackle social issues.

    The Hurt Locker

    The Hurt Locker

    The Hurt Locker was the first narrative feature to make full, unnerving dramatic sense of the war in Iraq, and it does so without polemics or speeches or phony melodrama. In fact, the director, Kathryn Bigelow, has been praised for making a war movie that is apolitical in nature. The film follows an Iraq War Explosive Ordnance Disposal team who are targeted by insurgents and shows their psychological reactions to the stress of combat.
