Was a bit disappointed in this, should have called it "The Definitive 80's US Horror Documentary" and even then there would be a few obvious omissions. I know it's all subjective, but seriously... no Italian horror? No Argento, Fulci, Deodato, Bava? And it's not like they're unaware of the iconic Italian horror flicks, right from the start in the 80's poster montage they zoomed in right next to Inferno and Cannibal Holocaust, yet didn't actually cover them or any other Italian movie. Seems a bit strange. And the covering of multiple inferior 80's sequels when the original and best version was released in the 70's and so wasn't covered became a little annoying too. I can see why they restricted it to the 80's cause that's when everyone was getting into this stuff on video and when it really took off, but a lot of classic 70's horror movies were being seen by many for the first time on video in the 80's so maybe "The first decade of video horror" would have been a better focus. I think they mentioned only 1 or 2 movies I hadn't heard of at all and their coverage of the rest didn't make me want to see any of those I hadn't already seen, so a little disappointing that way too... was really hoping to pick up a few movie titles to check out along the way. Didn't feel like I learned much if anything from the interviews either, some were very good and interesting but others became a bit repetitive by the 2-3 hour point and by 3-4 hours in I was really losing interest. The extreme length itself wasn't really a problem (I'd just watched an amazing 4 hour documentary interview before this one and hadn't been bored for a second - not horror related but mostly 70's + 80's computer technical nostalgia stuff) but they *really* needed a wider focus of movies and interviewees to keep this interesting for so long. Overall 6/10 , worth a watch but glad I didn't pay $60 for it.
