It's October, the perfect time to salute what's scary. To help you do that is a man who knows a few things about scary masks, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor, who has put his stamp on a new documentary titled In Search of Darkness. The film is an in-depth look at the explosion of horror films that took place in the '80s during the period in which Taylor was growing up.

Taylor is joined in the documentary by a number of '80s horror film icons as well as modern horror greats as they examine what made the highly inventive era such a great time for horror movies. There are over 45 contributors to the documentary, including director John Carpenter, A Nightmare on Elm Street scream queen Heather Langenkamp, iconic Hellraiser actor Doug Bradley and more.
