Now available for pre-order, we have all the details and a look at the trailer below:

Dark Ink, the publisher that released Kane Hodder and Tom Savini’s biographies along with dozens of other film and horror titles, is thrilled to announce that they partnered with CreatorVC to release a coffee table companion book of their amazing documentary film series, In Search of Darkness.

Written by horror experts Heather Wixson and Patrick Bromley, the book will feature an in-depth look at over 200 films featured in the series.  Using the same format as the films, In Search of Darkness will explore each year of the 1980s and showcase movies in chronological order.  The book will also include additional material including, horror icon features, “Year in Review” pages, box office numbers, and a checklist for fans to mark off the films they have seen.

"As executive producer on the In Search of Darkness series, I'm excited to present this definitive tribute to the films that thrilled, chilled, and forever changed the face of horror," said Robin Block, Founder & CEO of CreatorVC.

The limited edition coffee table book will be available for pre-order from now until the end of summer and will ship out in early 2024 with mass market editions available in the fall of that year.  The first 1,000 pre-orders will get their name in the book as well as an I Love 80s Horror gift pack.

“The ISOD film series is truly a horror fan's dream documentary.  We are excited to expand upon what CreatorVC created in their series and make the ultimate book on '80s horror,” said Michael Aloisi, owner of Dark Ink.
