Episode 076- We Lost It in the ’80s: An Interview With the Creators of “In Search of Darkness”

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.
