Because the 80s were all about sequels, it makes sense we'd get one to the most comprehensive documentary on 80s horror ever made.
Truth be told, I didn't think we would as, at more than four hours, In Search of Darkness covered a lot of ground, taking an in-depth look at the best decade of horror ever; one that was unconcerned with political correctness, didn't rely on CGI, and was just out to entertain... and shock and gross out.
Not that the best horror doesn't have something to say, but the 80s films didn't forget what audiences were there for: entertainment, scares, gore and Female Chest Nudity.
Damn, I love me that era of horror! I've watched In Search of Darkness twice, and I'm ready for a third go-round.
In Search of Darkness II has released its first trailer, see above, and launched a pre-sale campaign that runs through Oct. 31. You can check it out now at 80shorrordoc.com. There's also the opportunity to go beyond the film and subscribe to a 12-month interactive experience with regular Q and As, group-watch opportunities, and more.
Sounds like a slick deal to us, so check it out. And watch the trailer, if you haven't already.
Haven't seen In Search of Darkness yet? It's now available on Shudder.
