Episodes

EPISODE 1.1

Michael Myers

A cheap film shot in 21 days changed the landscape... More of horror, made several careers, and gave one actress an iconic role that she’s tweaking 42 years later.

EPISODE 1.2

Candyman

The genre's first black slasher showed up in 1992, rich... More with subtext about racial tensions in American history. In 2021, he's coming back--and is perhaps the most relevant horror icon imaginable.

EPISODE 1.3

Chucky

What started as a nasty spin on 80s consumerism flourished... More over three decades into an unlikely progressive horror property that refuses to get back on the shelf.

EPISODE 1.4

Freddy

Perhaps the most recognizable horror icon, Freddy Krueger's one-liners and... More merchandise has proven to be enjoyed by horror and non-horror fans alike.

EPISODE 1.5

Jason Voorhees

A look at the accidental creation of a machete-wielding avatar... More of conservative 1980s morality - one that, absent a new entry, a fiercely loyal fan base has taken to resurrecting on their own.

EPISODE 1.6

Pinhead

Emerging from a low budget independent film, this character who... More was simply called "Lead Cenobite" would become the undeniable symbol of pleasure and pain and the icon of the "Hellraiser" franchise.
