2019, 240 min, Dir: David A. Weiner

Clocking in at more than 4 hours, this definitive ’80s horror documentary features interviews with John Carpenter, Joe Dante, Barbara Crampton, Sean S. Cunningham, Greg Nicotero, Don Mancini, Caroline Williams and many more. Loaded with anecdotes and clips, IN SEARCH OF DARKNESS illuminates horror’s wildest decade, where films were loaded with practical FX, sex and gore, and reality was rife with political and cultural strife as the AIDS epidemic, seismic socioeconomic shifts, the Cold War and a boom in technological growth were changing the world forever.
