Digs deep with the master's of horror.
The all-stars of horror join Roth for a deep dive into all of the genre faves. There is nothing more thrilling for a horror fan than to see the filmmakers, screenwriters and people behind the masks share their perspectives on the films that have shaped horror fans for generations. There have always been people who write off horror as the perverse and mean-spirited, but it's those types of puritanical ideals that make horror the best of the best. When we look at human history, we are met with slashers, torture, witchcraft, genocide -- much done in the name of religion -- and so it's a funny irony that so many critics of the genre don't see the correlation. This show helps shine a light on this important genre of film. May it live on in all its bloody glory.

This makes me want to hang out with Eli Roth!
A bunch of horror greats sitting around with Eli Roth discussing their works and highlights of the genre. They cover what made certain films so iconic, what went into the creative process, as well as the cultural impact. As a lifelong horror fan, I even learned a few things that were new to me. Hoping for a season two!

Addictive
Could not stop watching it. I have seen many (perhaps most) of the movies discussed, but the discussion itself is so well crafted, so entertaining and enlightening, that it was like watching the movies all over again.

COMLETELY AWESOME!!!! I HAVE WATCHED THE ENTIRE SERIES 3 TIMES!!!!!!
I LOVE a documentary, and add HORROR to it! Well hells bells, that's simply fantastic. Love Stephen King who is featured a lot, and all the other actors and directors and authors, it's just a VERY well one series, and I love how they break it up into themed parts. Great Watch!!!

Love documentaries and horror?
I'm a sucker for documentaries and horror, so I loved this. Covers some lesser known gems as well as more popular films.

I loved this
I loved this mini series so much, and how it has so many people weighing on the classics as much as the newer versions of movies. I do love hearing from the directors and see what they think about their own work, and works that come after them.
