Did You Grow Up On Children’s Horror Television?

MONSTER FEST volunteer, VIDEO HOARDERS Series 1 Episode 5 guest and RMIT University PhD candidate Merinda Staubli is conducting a media research project examining the popularity and significance of children’s horror television screened in Australia in the 1990s and early 2000s and she’s asking for your assistance!

Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, children’s horror television was a sensation. With series like GOOSEBUMPS, ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK and FREAKY STORIES, horror made for kids became more popular than ever before or since. 
 What do you remember about these shows? 
Do you think they could have had any influence on you and what you watch today?
MSR-1You can be a part of this study in two ways: by completing an online
 questionnaire and/or participating in a focus group. The questionnaire will ask about any memories you may have of watching these programs. For example, how did these shows make you feel? 
 Do you remember where and with whom you watched them? The questionnaire will take roughly 25 – 30 minutes to complete but feel free to skip any questions if you are unsure how to answer.

The focus group will involve small group discussion about children’s horror television. It will take no longer than 90 minutes and will be held at RMIT University in Melbourne. The focus groups will be audio recorded for data storage and analysis.

You can complete the questionnaire without having to be in a focus group!
