In Search of Darkness Review

Oct 06, 2019

In Search of Darkness: A Journey Into Iconic ’80s Horror comes from writer and director David Weiner, and is a Robin Block Production, presented by CreatorVC. With a mix of clips, behind-the-scenes footage, and insight from the people directly involved with the genre, this documentary is equal parts retrospective and an encyclopedia of horror. The film is uncensored as you’d want it to be, and includes nudity (from the source material) and vulgarity (source material and interviews) that are only ever present when appropriate, and not gratuitous in any way. It’s a documentary that celebrates the genre in a wonderful way. In Search of Darkness encapsulates the 1980s perfectly, and smartly acknowledges what came before and after the horror movies that defined this decade and genre.
