‘Nightmares in Red, White and Blue’ — Brandon’s 30 Days of Horror — Day 22
I'm not sure if enjoying this documentary makes me a true horror geek, or just old, but either way I liked it. It not only goes through the genre and its changes chronologically, but it also provides great input from horror legends like John Carpenter, George A. Romero and Rick Garris.
Garris gives a fantastic quote about the people who make the movies we love:
"If you meet all the people who make horror films, you discover they are very non-violent, they're politically active and knowledgeable and anti-war. They have opened themselves up to all of these possibilities, and it's the people who repressed them who are the ones you have to look out for."
So if you find yourself struggling to choose which horror movie to watch over the next week or so, let me help you make the decision and watch Nightmares in Red, White and Blue. Plus, it's narrated by Lance Henrikson.
