At 256 minutes, you would think that the 80s horror documentary IN SEARCH OF DARKNESS would have covered just about everything from the decade but CreatorVC is returning to the world of 80s horror with IN SEARCH OF DARKNESS: PART II. The sequel documentary has released its first trailer and it’s kicking off with a pre-sale campaign that launched October 6th and will run through midnight Halloween, October 31st, 2020.
IN SEARCH OF DARKNESS: PART II plans of building on the success of the 2019 documentary by diving deeper into the practical-effects decade of 80s horror movies with over four hours of brand-new interviews, featuring such legendary horror icons as Robert Englund (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET franchise), Nancy Allen (DRESSED TO KILL, CARRIE), Linnea Quigley (RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD, NIGHT OF THE DEMONS), and special-effects wizard Tom Savini (FRIDAY THE 13TH, CREEPSHOW). Alongside 15 new faces, the original cast of IN SEARCH OF DARKNESS also returns to delve into more fan-favorite titles and eclectic entries of ’80s horror, year-by-year, expanding the scope to cover more international releases and to spotlight horror-career retrospectives.
CreatorVC is also offering horror fans a chance to go beyond the documentary by offering a unique, 12-month interactive experience, which includes exclusive access to horror fans to join its established social community on Discord. This unprecedented concept builds on the nostalgic documentary film experience by offering regular live Q&As with top ’80s horror film talent, group-watch events, and like-minded relationship building by engaging with other passionate cinephiles and collectors. This offering comes packaged with the sale of IN SEARCH OF DARKNESS: PART II, alongside other exclusive collector’s perks of posters and enamel pins – at a time when online communication and connection is more vital than ever.
The IN SEARCH OF DARKNESS: PART II pre-sale is up now at 80shorrordoc.com and runs exclusively through midnight Halloween, October 31st, 2020. I’ve already ordered my copy because the first documentary was honestly one of the best horror docs I’ve ever seen so I highly recommend getting involved because it’s a must-have for horror fans.
