Three Masters Discussing Horror
29 April 2016 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Take One "Fear on Film" (1982)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Mick Garris hosts this look at horror films with John Carpenter, John Landis and David Cronenberg all discussing their favorite scare films as well as what they think makes them work.

If you're a horror fan then this here is certainly a must see as all three men tell some wonderful stories about making horror films, battling the MPAA and test screenings among other things. Carpenter was in production on THE THING and Cronenberg was still making VIDEODROME at the time this was recorded so there are hints about those two films. There are some wonderful stories told about AN American WEREWOLF IN London and a certain scene that was cut, which Landis thinks really hurt the movie. There's also a lot of talk given to the special effects of movies and the time it takes to create them.
