I was referring to Season 1, Episode 4 on my last review 👻
I really enjoyed this! Learned something new about these movies, especially on this particular episode and I’ve watched MANY interviews and documentaries on the movies that were showcased here.
Honestly, I wasn't as impressed with this as I wanted to be but I think it's well put together and they have outstanding guests to talk to about these horror topics. It would be great for a new fan of horror to watch but having seen other shows like this in the past, it doesn't present much that I haven't already discovered. However, it's always reaffirming to hear that horror has such a history & purpose in film, even though I'm not learning anything new. I would love to see a Series 2 of this where they can maybe dive a little further past that top layer of horror and analyze lesser known classics. Eli Roth is a great choice to host this as well. 3 Skulls +1 for the fantastic guests.
I absolutely loved this! I’m watching it again. I hope they make another one!!!
As soon as I started my free trial on Shudder, this is the first thing I watched. I had already seen the series twice before but it really gets better every time I rewatch the episodes (especially after watching more of the films mentioned)
