Very interesting documentary about the biggest horror films through the decades.

Great documentary about the history of horror movies from the early days of silent films right up to the present. The film tries to show how horror movies are actually just a reflection of the era they were created in. Most of the well known horror flicks are represented, but there was also couple of movies I haven't heard of before and plan to watch. My only complaint about this movie is that it was much to short because it seems that alot of the discusions about certain flicks were left on the cutting room floor. It would have served better had they made it into a series. Say, each episode dedicated to each decade, because there were so many elements that could have been explored. Saying that though, this movie is a must for any horror fan.
