I really enjoy watching programs made by fans of horror.They're so sweet to watch because you can feel how much the other person loves and treasures the genre.
Petition to make a horror-themed bar in LA?
Nothing great, that man is obsessed with horror movies
Pretty decent documentary from the perspective of a past generation of horror fans. Did seem like the guy used the film as an excuse to do a bit of travelling but hey who wouldn't and the locations were pretty relevant. Interesting and insightful but clearly there's lots of different reasons why people watch horror.
Actually a really good and well put together documentary that has that personal perspective to it as well as a healthy dose of engaging interviews and subjects. A film that will entertain both those who love horror and those who should!
