Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,
Today I will be reviewing the highly anticipated sequel documentary, “In Search of Darkness Part II!” I saw the first one in 2019 and loved it! It was jammed packed with four hours of 80s horror history and it left me craving for more! Luckily they did a part II to keep us horror fans satisfied! I have been following the 80sHorrorDoc IG page and they announced they were accepting reviews for an early screening. I immediately jumped at the opportunity! I was fortunate enough to be able to screen this documentary before its release. I have to say this documentary out did itself once again. The documentary immediately dives back into the journey of 80s horror. It is done in a similar format as the first documentary where they go through horror movies from the 80s decade and separate them by year.
We also get more dope interviews from Iconic Horror Directors like John Carpenter, Stuart Gordon (R.I.P.), Joe Dante, Don Mancini and more. As well as horror Icons like Robert Englund, Tom Atkins, Barbara Crampton and the list goes on! We also get commentary from Horror content creators, special make up effects artists (Tom Savini, Greg Nicotero to name a few), celebrities who are fans of horror and more! They all give their unique perspectives on the films that are discussed and what they enjoy about the film.
This documentary even put me on game about horror movies I have never heard of like “Humanoids From the Deep, The Being, Razorback,” and even controversial fake snuff film series “Faces of Death.” I loved how the documentary was separated into sections like 80s Italian Invasion, Demon Seeds, The Craft of Horror acting, Anti-Heroes and more. In Search of Darkness Part II is filled with 4 hours of pure Horror trivia! It is a must watch for any Horror fan to nerd over! Turn off the lights, get your popcorn ready and get ready to go on a Horror adventure ride! You can buy your copy at the link above!
