The final journey into ‘80s horror cinema has arrived! In Search of Darkness: Part III is now available exclusively at until Midnight Halloween (Pacific Time), October 31st.

In Search of Darkness: Part III is a five-plus-hour exploration of a time when horror filmmaking exploded thanks to cable TV and the home video revolution. Packed with quality film clips and interviews, the long-form ‘80s-era documentary dives into 79 impactful and controversial films of the decade, from direct-to-video and shot-on-video bottom-shelf favorites to unsung drive-in and theatrical releases. 

Presented in a year-by-year format (1980-1989) alongside larger-context chapters, the superdoc explores the rise of indie horror filmmakers amid the home video boom; the horror backlash during the Satanic Panic; Heavy Metal in horror; marginalization in mainstream content; the influence of Mexican, European, Canadian and Asian horror; the flexibility of the horror genre; visionary directors; artist profiles; and much more.
