From David Weiner, “The decade of ‘80s horror provided a treasure trove of genre films that horror fans hold close to their hearts. The first In Search of Darkness only scratched the surface of what ‘80s horror had to offer, and in PART II we get to cast a wider net and also dig deeper: Brand-new interviews; new takes from the original In Search of Darkness cast; more international horror titles; examinations of controversial films and genre movements; career-retrospective interviews with such horror legends as Robert Englund, Tom Savini, Linnea Quigley and Nancy Allen; and perhaps some titles that even the most die-hard horror fans have never heard of or seen before. We get to share a whole new world of shock and gore in this new love letter to ‘80s horror, made with love by the fans for the fans.”
