AMC Visionaries: Eli Roth's History of Horror
Award-winning horror film director, writer, producer and actor Eli Roth brings together the masters of horror - the storytellers and stars who define the genre - to explore its biggest themes and reveal the inspirations and struggles behind its past and present. Each one-hour episode will take viewers on a chilling exploration of how horror has evolved through the years and examine the genre's impact on society as well as delving into how horror maintains its fan base and why audiences are addicted to fear. Interviewees include Stephen King, Quentin Tarantino, Linda Blair and many others.
The history of monster movies is also the history of the evolution of special effects technology, for many horror fans monsters are the best part of the genre.
3. Body Horror
Sometimes disgusting, body horror films make audience members question their prejudices against physical difference, their attitudes about sex and gender, their fear of disease and contamination, and how much appearance determines destiny.
The archetypical evil witch is a towering figure in the history of horror and is everything mainstream religion tells us a woman should not be - and that unapologetic, very female power frightens men and fascinates women.
5. Chilling Children
The films highlighted in this episode may not solve the mystery of where evil comes from, but they have a terrifically terrifying time raising the question.
I really enjoyed this series. Thank you for teaching me more on horror. Now on too Season2.
So far an amazing watch... Already know a lot about the facts of eaxh episode, but there's always something new to learn and this is like listening to your like-minded friends about their opinions of your favourite horror films. Couldnt ask for more than that.

This series is awesome. I love learning about the different types of horror films and their history. I hope they continue to make these episodes. They're way cool.
