"In Search of Darkness is the most complete retrospective documentary of the genre ever made. Featuring compelling critical takes, insider tales, and unheard anecdotes, this extraordinary documentary delivers a new perspective on the decade that gave rise to some of the horror genre’s greatest films and franchises."
Over its four-hour-plus runtime, In Search of Darkness features an incredible cast of 45+ contributors, including John Carpenter, Heather Langenkamp, Doug Bradley, Kane Hodder and Barbara Crampton.
Directed by David A. Weiner, the comprehensive documentary will also feature a number notable pop culture pundits and industry experts alike: Slipknot lead singer Corey Taylor, Joe Bob Briggs, Ryan Turek (producer, Halloween , Happy Death Day), Diana Prince (Darcy the Mail Girl from "The Last Drive-In") Ben Scrivens (Fright-Rags), and Katie Featherston (the Paranormal Activity series), to name a few.
Following the film's recent premiere at Beyond Fest, it was revealed that there's a new special edition release - available on Blu-ray or DVD - and including a poster, enamel pin, postcard and an opportunity to be featured in the credits. The special package is only available for the month of October and will cost you $59.99.
