CreatorVC Studios have recently launched their Kickstarter campaign to fund “THE DEFINITIVE ’80S HORROR DOCUMENTARY”.
For the first time in Horror history, In Search of Darkness will bring together ‘80s horror icons, modern horror greats, and popular horror influencers to create the most complete retrospective documentary of the genre ever made.
Together, they will bring their unique perspectives as we take a nostalgic journey back to revisit the unforgettable heroes, monsters, and movies that thrilled and chilled us.
The campaign launched on October 4th with a goal of £25,000 – this evening (October 5th) the campaign has already generated over £16,000!!!!!!
We caught up with Executive Producer, Robin Block to find out more about Kickstarters hottest campaign.
We were honoured to speak with legendary horror film composer Harry Manfredini about his career in music and film; from creating the iconic score for Friday the 13th and it’s sequels to working on the recent video game.
“……one day in his kitchen, he said to me… I am going to make the scariest film ever, its called Friday the 13th, and you are going to score it…. And the rest I guess is history!”
