Just when you thought the search was over, Creator VC, the masters of community empowered film enter a new era of the horror genre. Writer and Director David Weiner will be setting off on a journey to explore the lost decade of horror with 'In Search of Darkness: 1990-1994' and as always he's taking you, the fans, with him. David and the team at Creator VC have launched for pre-sale this latest epic long form documentary packed full of insights and interviews with horror icons, and will feature a year long campaign to offer fans opportunities to shape the finished film.
The 1990s saw yet another cultural shift happening; a rejecting of 80s excess replaced with a more gritty sense of realism. Gone was “big hair metal”, and replaced by Seattle Grunge. The world became smaller with the advent of the internet, and even more dangerous with serial killers and riots dominating news headlines. The horror genre has always mirrored society in many ways and the 90s was no exception. The rejection of the 80s is echoed in the closing doors of some of that era's beloved franchises ('Nightmare on Elm Street' 'Friday the 13th'). Serial killers were no longer mindless slashers but erudite and intelligent ('Silence of the Lambs') quiet and unassuming yet charming ('Single White Female'), and Gothic legends became tortured, misunderstood souls ('Bram Stoker's Dracula' and 'Mary Shelley's Frankenstein'). With 'In Search of Darkness: 1990-1994' writer and director David Weiner examines the early years of this transformative era of horror;
“The early ‘90s was a time of transition and evolution for horror films and television, with a freight train of content, creativity and imagination on display. With In Search of Darkness: 1990-1994, we'll finally have an opportunity to show the uninitiated why this time period was so important for the growth of the horror genre. I'm excited to craft the definitive look at a deserving decade of creativity with your favorite '90s horror screen legends, all with the same celebratory lens as my In Search of Darkness ‘80s trilogy."
Fans of the previous trilogy are promised all the usual deep dive examinations and analysis wrapped in the same love and energy we come to expect from Weiner and the Creator VC team. They promise exclusive interviews with horror film icons and experts, who share personal and candid observations, and fond memories of their experiences on some of the iconic classics that defined the decade.
