Award-winning horror film director, writer, producer and actor Eli Roth brings together the masters of horror – the storytellers and stars who define the genre – to explore its biggest themes and reveal the inspirations and struggles behind its past and present. Each one-hour episode will take viewers on a chilling exploration of how horror has evolved through the years and examine the genre’s impact on society as well as delving into how horror maintains its fan base and why audiences are addicted to fear. Interviewees include Stephen King, Quentin Tarantino, Linda Blair and many others.

Eli Roth’s History of Horror was a show I greatly enjoyed. Broken down into different episodes that talked about a lot of different horror genres and subjects, this was a talking head show that was a nice dive into good to great portions of the horror genre’s history. Eli Roth is the host and a name on it, but I think this show would have been worth seeing if it didn’t have an already established name on it. Some of the people we see talk about these subjects are such names as Quentin Tarantino, so if you have people like that talking about these things then you know I’ll be more inclined to listen. As a person who likes documentaries and likes watching extras on movies that get released, this is a show that I can watch just for the sake of watching or just throw on to have something. It works really well regardless.

For over seven hours you’ll get all you want to know about horror here and more! The subject matter here covers slashers to zombies and just about everything else in between. If that isn’t enough for you, then you have over two hours of extras to watch after that weren’t on the show. This ends up being a very solid release and comes with some very interesting subject matters that all horror fans can and will enjoy. This first season is well worth checking out if for some reason you have yet to actually have seen it. It’s fun and even a bit educational.
