Back in 2018, AMC delivered audiences Eli Roth's History of Horror, which explored the evolution of a number of popular subgenres of terrifying tales, chronicling their evolution over the years, which resulted in the announcement last year that it would be getting a second season. Just in time for Halloween, AMC confirmed that Season Two of History of Horror would be debuting in October and dive deep into a number of new subgenres, all while uniting the best minds in horror history to discuss not only where those subgenres started, but what their futures could hold.

Season Two of Eli Roth's History of Horror digs even deeper into the catacombs of creepiness, exhuming landmark films and cult classics while chewing on the entrails of recent horror cinema. The series explores the dark power and wicked fun of scary movies, the craft that went into making them, and the ways that horror films reflect the anxieties of their times. The story is told by Eli Roth and a celebrated cast of writers, directors, actors, cinematographers, composers, and special effects artists who bring our nightmares to life.

Interviewees include Stephen King, Quentin Tarantino, Jordan Peele, Ari Aster, Bill Hader, Nancy Allen, Megan Fox, Greg Nicotero, Rob Zombie, James Brolin, Edgar Wright, Piper Laurie, Leonard Maltin, Katharine Isabelle, Jack Black, Slash, Rachel True, Ashley Laurence, Joe Dante, Roger Corman, Mary Harron, John Landis, Tom Savini, Karyn Kusama, and many others.

“I’m so thrilled to be continuing this historic series with AMC,” Roth shared in a statement when Season Two was announced. “In Season One, we had the most incredible conversations with the top creators in the field who really helped fans around the world appreciate the horror genre in a new light….we look forward to going even deeper in Season Two, bringing out the A-listers to share their stories with everyone for all-time and adding more and more films to the canon. AMC is the perfect network to partner with on a passion project like this and we can’t wait to get started.”
