Nightmares in Red, White and Blue (2009)


Lance Henriksen lends his voice to this informative and insightful documentary that explores American horror cinema. It dives into the early horror movies and why so many audiences were frightened by it. It tells of the historical significance of horror movies and theorizes that horror isn’t just scaring American audiences but also mocking the thing we call ‘an American Dream.’ There are lots of interesting points the film makes about why were are fascinated but so terrified by serial killers and what do serial killers actually stand for. It’s a great underrated documentary that I think any horror fan should check out as soon as possible.
