Lance Henriksen serves as the narrator for this eye-popping examination of the history of the American horror film. The complete evolution of the genre is traced from the earliest scares of the silent era to the creepiest efforts of modern times. Through interviews with such masters as Roger Corman, John Carpenter, and George A. Romero, and profiles of classics including "Rosemary's Baby," "The Exorcist," and "Nightmare on Elm Street," the documentary deftly unearths the horror yarn's impact on our culture. 96 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
