Welcome to a special episode of Front Row Flashbacks for our Monstercast interview of writer/producer/director and friend of the pod, David Weiner. He is the director of the critically acclaimed documentaries In Search of Darkness Parts I and II, which focus on the history of 1980’s horror movies.

David has joined us in the past for an interview about his career, and to talk with us about the werewolf-classic American Werewolf in London. Today our interview focuses on In Search of Darkness Part III, and why he’s continued his trajectory into the great decade of horror movies.
