Last year we began hearing talk about an upcoming documentary on 80’s horror films called In Search of Darkness. The makers of the film have had an incredibly successful crowd funding campaign and have been able to complete their vision. The result is what looks like an amazing nostalgic journey through what many call the greatest decade for the horror genre. Feast your eyes upon this ridiculously awesome trailer:
How can you not want to get your hands on this?? The good news is that you still can. Their IndieGogo campaign is still going strong, offering fans the chance to pre-order the documentary on digitial, DVD, and blu-ray platforms. There are a host of other rewards available as well, all of which can be found here. Pre-orders will be taken until March 31st, so do not delay! This is definitely something horror fanatics will not want to miss out on.
Featuring compelling critical takes and insider tales of the Hollywood filmmaking experience throughout the 1980s, In Search of Darkness will provide fans with a unique perspective on the decade that gave rise to some of the horror genre’s greatest icons, performers, directors and franchises that forever changed the landscape of modern cinema. Tracking major theatrical releases, obscure titles and straight-to-video gems, the incredible array of interviewees that have been assembled for ISOD will weigh in on a multitude of topics: from creative and budgetary challenges creatives faced throughout the decade to the creature suits and practical effects that reinvigorated the makeup effects industry during the era to the eye-popping stunts that made a generation of fans believe in the impossible. In Search of Darkness will also celebrate many of the atmospheric soundtracks released during that time, the resurgence of 3-D filmmaking, the cable TV revolution and the powerful marketing in video store aisles, the socio-political allegories infused throughout many notable films, and so much more.
