Eli Roth’s History of Horror is returning to AMC in time for the Halloween season. Join the ultimate genre masterclass on Oct. 10.

Eli Roth’s History of Horror was a hit for AMC when it premiered on the network in 2018. For genre aficionados, this was a walk down memory lane full of classic film clips, interviews with iconic actors and in depth discussions featuring various prominent creators such as Greg Nicotero, Rob Zombie, Quentin Tarantino and Roger Corman.

Yesterday, the network announced that History of Horror would be returning for Season 2 just in time for Halloween. Starting Saturday, Oct. 10, fans will be joining Roth and an assorted cast of talent including Bill Hader, Ari Aster, Jordan Peele, Tom Savini, Jack Black, Ashley Laurence and Edgar Wright among others.

In addition to focusing on popular franchises and cult classics, the series will also be examining the impact of newer films on the genre. Judging from the guest line-up, it would be safe to assume that there may be episodes revolving around Midsommar, IT: Chapter Two and Us.

Until Eli Roth’s History of Horror returns, viewers can check out the director’s Master Class featuring extended interviews with various luminaries. You can find the videos at this link.

Since several high-profile potential blockbusters (Halloween Kills and The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It ) are being pushed to 2021, AMC making Roth’s show available should help to take the edge off for fans desperate for a horror fix.
