Dion’s research interests lie in the socio-psychological study of the horror film: his PhD research is in the Classical Hollywood B horror film, and while this focus is primarily in the study of genre, it also intersects with an auteur study of the work of Alfred Hitchcock, exploring similar themes in and out of his explicit horror film work. Through a study of the horror film as symptomatic of broader cultural fears, this research seeks to explore and problematize the thin line between safety and monstrosity (both within and without). He has taught courses on science fiction and horror genres at York University.
