Documentary dissecting how the real life horrors of the "American nightmare" of the late 1960s/early 1970s influenced important horror films, such as George Romero's Night of the Living Dead and Tobe Hooper's Texas Chainsaw Massacre
The Cronenberg segment was interesting, but all the other directors needed these mediocre academics to tell the usual robinwoodian interpretation of what their lowbrow movies were about. Last House on the Left mirrored Kent State shootings and Vietnam war? Yeah, sure. This whole "re-evaluation of modern American horror film" is starting to smell funny and needs a serious non-marxist re-evaluation.
