What began as a modest bonus feature became – when Covid hit – an international Zoom-enabled feature-length documentary on the evolution, challenges and all-time Top 5 greatest anthologies and segments in horror. Severin Films chief David Gregory and House of Psychotic Women author Kier-La Janisse query a global roster of more than 60 horror writers, directors, and scholars that include Eli Roth, Joe Dante, Mark Hartley, Mick Garris, Ernest Dickerson, Tom Savini, Brian Yuzna, Jenn Wexler, Larry Fessenden, Richard Stanley, Joko Anwar, Greg Nicotero, David DeCoteau, Simon Barrett Kim Newman, Jovanka Vuckovic, Luigi Cozzi, Roger Corman, Brian Trenchard-Smith, Gary Sherman, Rebekah McKendry, and Peter Strickland in a candid discussion of such film/TV classics as Dead of Night, Black Sabbath, Kwaidan, Spirits of the Dead, Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors, The House That Dripped Blood, Asylum, Tales From the Crypt, The Twilight Zone, Creepshow, Tales From the Darkside, Trilogy of Terrror, Two Evil Eyes, V/H/S, XX and more. The film leads us from the very first examples of the anthology film in early cinema, right up to the present day, without forgetting of course the endearing impact that the likes of Vincent Price and Peter Cushing had in creating some of the most memorable classic films ever made.
