In Search of Darkness: Part II
Directed by David A. Weiner
Building on the hit 2019 superdoc that Forbes called “a scary good magnum opus,” IN SEARCH OF DARKNESS: PART II dives deeper into the fabled practical-effects decade of iconic and eclectic ‘80s horror movies that changed the course of film history. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE.

Awesome interviews and great insight into Tom Savini's work, as well as reminding us all of the classic trope "this movie couldn't be done today".
Though the quality of the interviews varies (the amount of screen time dedicated to the lead vocalist of slipknot, for example, is approaching 20 minutes), the sheer volume of content guarantees a fascinating piece of documentary. Perhaps not a skilled one, though.
Both of these are great and give you so many titles to explore. It was nice to see more James Rolfe in this one. Hope they do a part 3.
Wow just wow! Keep it coming-nothing comes close to 80s horror-as much as the 70s produced some amazing movies (arguably the greatest in the TCSM) it doesn’t come close to the mind blowing concepts & practical sfx of the 80!😍🤟
