More than four hours long and still I couldn't stop thinking it was supposed to be better. But at least it feels like an introduction and sometimes that's what we need. [Full review in Spanish].

In a time when people seem far more interested in litigating on social media what exactly 'horror' is, it's both refreshing and delightful to see such an open-armed embrace of the genre as a whole.

You might find the volume of information overwhelming at first because they come at you with a rapid-fire pace, but once you settle in, this documentary is a great ride.

The documentary goes on to explore many different and interesting aspects of the genre such as 'Final Girls', music and the effects of Home Media and 3D on the genre. A must watch for any fans of 80s Horror or Horror in general!

An encyclopedic deep dive into the movies, people, and themes that brought forth a prosperous era in blood soaked cinema.
