In Search of Darkness - A Journey into 80s Horror

If you love horror movies as much as me, you need to watch “In Search of Darkness” on Shudder!

This over 4 hour long worship of 1980s horror was such a pleasure to watch. I’ve powered through it 2 times now and I’m on my 3rd

viewing.

It touches on so many classics like: The Company of Wolves, Critters, Pumpkinhead, Scanners, Motel Hell, The Blob, the Friday the 13th franchise, Basket Case, Society and so many others!


One thing I really enjoyed about this documentary is the way they presented the information. Why do we like horror movies? What was going on in the 80s to inspire such a great timeframe of films (one actress sites cocaine 😀). How and why a soundtrack was so important to many of the horror movies in the 80s.

They also break movies down by each year in the decade.
