Conceived, funded, produced and distributed in under 18 months, our second documentary, In Search of Darkness, was a critical and commercial success. With a four-hour-plus runtime and 45+ contributors – including John Carpenter, Doug Bradley, and Barbara Crampton – In Search of Darkness is now recognized as the most complete retrospective documentary of the genre ever made.
Funding & Production
Early fan support, including successful crowdfunding campaigns on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, enabled us to produce the documentary our way, without interference from a studio or outside investment.
As momentum built, we assembled a “who’s-who" of ‘80s horror, including a wide range of directors, producers, actors, and FX specialists. The resulting 100+ hours of footage led to a four-hour-plus runtime packed full of compelling critical takes, insider tales, and unheard anecdotes.
In Search of Darkness premiered in front of a packed audience at BeyondFest, the highest attended genre film festival in the U.S.
