The '80s were horror movie heaven.

A wild mixture of new technology, misfit filmmakers, obscure distributors, rich dentists trying to find tax shelters, buckets of blood and latex, and home video rental helped usher in one of the most prolific and influential eras in horror film history.

A new documentary in the works, IN SEARCH OF DARKNESS: A JOURNEY INTO ICONIC '80s HORROR, that has the potential to become the definitive look at this wild decade of horror.

Join my guests, Director David Weiner and Executive Producer Robin Block as they discuss their documentary, their passions and what movies they consider their "First Kiss"!

Check out the trailer and more at the In Search of Darkness Kickstarter page: 


I hope you enjoy the show!
