The genre Blu-ray mavens at Vinegar Syndrome have made it an annual tradition to announce new surprise titles on Black Friday, and this morning is no exception. One of them is a much-awaited cult fright flick in a fully loaded region-free double-disc set, with a RUE MORGUE staffer as one of the key contributors.
There have been extensive documentaries on specific horror films from the '80s like A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and FRIDAY THE 13TH, but until now there hasn’t been one that goes into detail about the huge catalogue of '80s horror films. Spawned from a Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaign, director and writer David A. Wiener decided to fill that gap with IN SEARCH OF DARKNESS, a 4-hour deep dive into one of horror’s most influential decades.
The only things more shocking and outrageous than the horror films of the 1980s were the ads promoting them in the newspapers of the time. Now, a book compiling over 450 of those rare, eye-teasing images is coming under the RUE MORGUE banner!
