I don't think i blinked the whole 4.5 hours

I started this movie and just lost track of time completely, I am not sure i even blinked i was so enthralled. The pacing, the content and the stories from all the greats of horror history just kept all of my attention. If you are a horror fan you HAVE TO WATCH THIS!

The Definitive Documentary On 80's Horror!

In Search Of Darkness is a perfect in depth dive into all that is 80's horror. It has so many incredible interviews with the casts and crews of the movies that make up all of the classic films of the era. It is definitely a documentary made by someone who has a genuine love of every one of the movies that is covered in it.

In Search of Substance

Wow! 4.5 hours of 80's horror behind the scenes, interviews and clips! That's gotta to be quintessential, right? Well.. no. Not at all actually. What should've been THE definitive 80's horror doc left me on my appetite. As a huge 80's horror fan myself, I have to say I was rather disappointed in how this movie didn't meet the expectations its massive advertising campaign created. For each year of the decade clips from very few selected movies are shown and some of the guests (only solos) say something about it during 1 to 5ish minutes. Throughout each year segment, other topics are brought up such as: music, nudity, etc.. The guests lineup is rather thin. Some top of the barrel big names directly involved in horror movie making in this decade and some (many) less relevant participants (I mean, Corey Taylor. Really?) that are basically rephrasing something taken from the trivia section or only saying which kill they preferred in Nightmare 4. Speaking of which, I know the A Nightmare on Elm Street and the Friday the 13th franchises are monuments of the genre but, I feel they were given too much screentime on this movie. Especially since they both already have their own extensive and thorough documentaries. During the 270 minutes of In Search of Darkness, I learned nothing new. There is nothing here that had not already been seen and said many times. It's sadly extremely superficial. And this made me wonder: who is this movie for? Horror fans will be disappointed with its abysmal lack of substance and non-initiated will be turned off by its duration.. At a price of 70$USD, I feel this movie should've been so much more than what it turned out to be.
