    Man, sometimes I do not get the horror movie zeitgeist, as it were. So many people eviscerated this movie before I'd even had a chance to see it, and now that I have, I find it to be remarkably creative and very intense.

    This is a great, extensive documentary on 80's horror. I only wish they had gone into some of the lesser-known horror of the era; they stay pretty safe with what they feature even though they show posters for films like The Mutilator and Slime City, which no one talks about. Lin Shaye is mentioned but not featured and my biased self really wishes they had gotten her to sit down for this. But it's an undeniable accomplishment and so much fun it doesn't feel as long as it is.
