In Search of Darkness ★★★★

"If one horror movie hits, everyone says, 'Let's go make a horror film'. It's the genre that never dies." - George A. Romero

I enjoyed this 4 hour documentary about horror in the 80's. Loved some of the talking heads a lot like John Carpenter, Doug Bradley, Keith David, Kane Hodder, Heather Langenkamp. Wish we had seen more of James Rolfe.

The format is simple, it goes from year to year, they will talk about a movie for 2-3 minutes and in between the years they talk about final girls, soundtracks etc. It's basic but I thought it was okay. Most of the movies they talked about I had seen, but I did see some posters around some of the movies they talked about that I hadn't seen yet. So they will go on my watchlist!

Anyway, if you enjoy horror and you have the time, or like me watch it over a few days. It's a fun watch.
