Season 2 of Eli Roth’s History of Horror docuseries to air on AMC in October

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

AMC has announced that the second season of the docu-series Eli Roth's History of Horror will be making its premiere on Saturday, October 10th at 10pm Eastern. This season of the show will 

dig even deeper into the catacombs of creepiness, exhuming landmark films and cult classics while chewing on the entrails of recent horror cinema. The series explores the dark power and wicked fun of scary movies, the craft that went into making them, and the ways that horror films reflect the anxieties of their times. The story is told by Eli Roth and a celebrated cast of writers, directors, actors, cinematographers, composers, and special effects artists who bring our nightmares to life.

Over the course of this season's episodes, we'll see interviews with the likes of Stephen King, Quentin Tarantino, Jordan Peele, Ari Aster, Bill Hader, Nancy Allen, Megan Fox, Greg Nicotero, Rob Zombie, James Brolin, Edgar Wright, Piper Laurie, Leonard Maltin, Katharine Isabelle, Jack Black, Slash, Rachel True, Ashley Laurence, Joe Dante, Roger Corman, Mary Harron, John Landis, Tom Savini, and Karyn Kusama, among others.

This announcement reminds me that I still need to get around to watching the first season of History of Horror, and to listening to the podcast of extended interviews that's available on the Shudder streaming service. Our own Alex Maidy gave the first season of the show an 8/10 review, so I've been holding off on this for too long.
