I’m sure you’ve seen Director Eli Roth in many interviews discussing the horror genre. For good reason, Roth has brought a lot of horror to us in the past fifteen plus years. Cabin Fever (2002), the Hostel franchise, 2001 Maniacs (2005) and Green Inferno (2013), to name just a few. It is only fitting that he is bringing a series titled History of Horror to AMC’s new Visionaries series. This past weekend, it was announced when we get to watch this six part series. Find out below!
The verdict is… we get to watch this on Sunday, October 14th at Midnight EST!
Eli Roth’s thoughts on the project via Bloody Disgusting:
“I’m thrilled to be part of this incredible series. For years, I’ve wanted to create a definitive History of Horror, a living record of the genre with interviews from all the greats, old and new,” Roth recently said. “Sadly, we lose more of these masters every year, and with them go their stories and experiences. This show will serve as a record for future generations — fans and filmmakers alike — to enjoy. I could not be prouder to create this with AMC.”
Featuring A-list storytellers like Stephen King, Quentin Tarantino, Jordan Peele, Jason Blum, Robert Englund, Linda Blair, Tippi Hedren, Rob Zombie, Haley Joel Osment, Jack Black, John Landis, Jamie Lee Curtis and more, Eli Roth’s History of Horror brings together the masters of horror – icons and stars who define the genre – to explore its biggest themes and reveal the inspirations and struggles behind its past and present.
Each one-hour episode will take viewers on a chilling exploration of how horror has evolved through the eras and impacted society, as well as why loyal fans remain addicted to fear.
I’m looking forward to this series! How about you? I am always up to watch these type of documentaries, especially ones about horror and why we all love to get scared! Will you be checking it out?
