Horror and thrillers are my go to form of entertainment. I see a lot of folks think this wasn't that great. I didn't watch this for any other reason other than I just love horror and I like to hear other people talk about their experiences with the genre. Yeah, I've heard most of it before but it still interests me. I didn't care that this fella made this about his personal fascination with horror. I thought this was an ok documentary. Don't be horror snobs.
