Season two of AMC’s docuseries “Eli Roth’s History of Horror” starts this Saturday October 10th, and Cherry the Geek TV sat down with Executive Producer/Writer/Showrunner Kurt Sayenga to discuss what horror geeks can expect from the new season.
Six new one-hour episodes dig even deeper into the catacombs of creepiness, exhuming landmark films and cult classics while chewing on the entrails of recent horror cinema. The series explores the dark power and wicked fun of scary movies, the craft that went into making them, and the ways that horror films reflect the anxieties of their times. The story is told by Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever) and a celebrated cast of directors, writers, actors, cinematographers, composers, and special effects artists who bring our nightmares to life.
Topics this season include “Houses of Hell, ” “Monsters,” “Body Horror,” “Witches,” “Chilling Children,” and “Nightmare Nine,” which focuses on nine unique horror films that are hard to fit into a specific horror sub-category.
Interviewees this season include Stephen King, Quentin Tarantino, Jordan Peele, Ari Aster, Bill Hader, Nancy Allen, Megan Fox, Greg Nicotero, Rob Zombie, James Brolin, William Katt, Piper Laurie, Leonard Maltin, Slash, Jack Black, Rachel True, Ashley Laurence, Joe Dante, Roger Corman, Mary Harron, John Landis, and many others.
