Does anyone else remember this airing back in the mid to late '80's? It was a special series, I believe, about horror and contained a lot of great clips and various directors talking about the genre. I remember it being my first exposure to Evil Dead 2 and TCM 2, and was pretty much what ignited my love of horror movies. I remember thinking how outrageous it was that they could show stuff like that on TV and get away with it, and how cool it was!

It was actually a long documentary that was occasionally cut into smaller segments and shown on the USA Network as "This Is Horror." King's only in it for fifteen minutes or so, and it's really more of a promotional piece montage.

I still have a tape of the original airing somewhere in my collection.
