‘Eli Roth’s History of Horror’ is a Terrifying Trip Down Memory Lane
AMC’s year-round documentary series AMC Visionaries is making the leap from outer space to your nightmares with Eli Roth’s History of Horror. Starting October 14, The Hostel and The House with a Clock in Its Walls director will produce and host the seven-part series, each episode bringing together iconic horror filmmakers, actors, writers, make-up wizards, and monster maestros to discuss the past, present, and future of film’s most bloodcurdling genre.
Names set to appear on History of Horror include Stephen King, Jordan Peele, Jason Blum, Linda Blair, Jamie Lee Curtis, Rob Zombie, Quentin Tarantino, and more. The series will kick off with an episode digging through the guts of the zombie genre, followed by back-to-back installments exploring horror’s most stab-happy form, the slasher film. A few films scheduled to be discussed and dissected are Psycho, The Shining, Get Out, Interview With The Vampire, Night of the Living Dead, and plenty more from the classic spookshow canon.
AMC Visionaries: Eli Roth’s History of Horror premieres on AMC Sunday, October 14.
