After shining a loving light on the amazing practical effects, iconic slashers, and powerful performances from ’80s horror films in three impressively extensive documentaries (in case you missed it, read Caitlin Kennedy's previous interview with director David Weiner), the CREATORVC team is now turning their attention to the ’90s to celebrate the first half of a more forgotten decade of horror with In Search of Darkness: 1990–1994. Written and directed by David Weiner and executive produced by Robin Block, In Search of Darkness: 1990–1994 is now available to pre-order through Halloween, and we have a look at the documentary's official trailer!

Press Release: Los Angeles, CA - October 6, 2023: CREATORVC, the creators of the critically acclaimed In Search of Darkness '80s horror documentary trilogy, are entering a brand-new decade with their upcoming film In Search of Darkness: 1990 -1994, available for pre-order from October 6 through midnight Halloween (October 31, 2023) at

Explore the ‘90s with Legendary Icons & Experts: After 14+ hours and the greatest lineup of ’80s Horror talent ever assembled, the In Search of Darkness ‘80s Trilogy is complete. But as we all know, horror never dies… The early ‘90s represented an exciting, challenging, and evolutionary period for horror filmmaking, yet remains curiously unappreciated by many. Some call it a “lost decade” of horror. We disagree.

Featuring exclusive interviews with horror film icons and experts, In Search of Darkness: 1990-1994 will dive into this amazing era to share personal and candid observations, experiences, and analysis to help deconstruct, re-contextualize, and reframe this fascinating period of time in filmmaking history -- all with the same reverence and energetic celebratory lens as the In Search of Darkness ‘80s trilogy, which was nominated for the Fangoria Chainsaw Award and two Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards.

From Writer/Director David Weiner: “The early ‘90s was a time of transition and evolution for horror films and television, with a freight train of content, creativity and imagination on display. With In Search of Darkness: 1990-1994, we'll finally have an opportunity to show the uninitiated why this time period was so important for the growth of the horror genre.
