If you are a horror lover you understand and respect what the decade of cocaine fueled craziness contributed to the horror genre. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying there was cocaine involved in every 80’s horror movie (Maximum Overdrive). All I am saying is that the 80’s were amazing in a lot of ways and one of the biggest reasons is all the classic horror films and icons that it birthed. Movies like the Halloween sequels, Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Reanimator, Gremlins, Child’s Play, etc. I could go on and on and on. I digress, this doc looks to be everything you ever wanted in an 80’s horror review.
“Featuring compelling critical takes and insider tales of the Hollywood filmmaking experience throughout the 1980s, In Search of Darkness will provide fans with a unique perspective on the decade that gave rise to some of the horror genre’s greatest icons, performers, directors and franchises that forever changed the landscape of modern cinema. Tracking major theatrical releases, obscure titles and straight-to-video gems, the incredible array of interviewees that have been assembled for ISOD will weigh in on a multitude of topics: from creative and budgetary challenges creatives faced throughout the decade to the creature suits and practical effects that reinvigorated the makeup effects industry during the era to the eye-popping stunts that made a generation of fans believe in the impossible.”
