I love things like this but this doc didn’t really cover any new ground. As horror fans we can probably all talk about why we think horror is fun/ important and all the points covered here were kind of “duh”. This is good to have on in the background while folding laundry but nothing revolutionary.

Interesting, but a bit uneven.

This documentary is bland and mediocre. This documentary brings nothing new to the table to what is already known surrounding the genre, horror. In my opinion, you should pass this documentary up. It will save you 80 something minutes of time.

Very enjoyable and informative. Gives you a good sense of how in a world where we see so much division and have so many polarizing views, the horror community transcends all of that. It always has and i think thats pretty amazing.
