    I've been waiting for this for some time, although I'm concerned it may be a bit drier (as opposed to fun) than I'd like. We'll see. At any rate, it's a topic that deserves this treatment, so good on Roth/AMC.

    Saw somewhere (maybe here? Maybe tv?) where they asked Eli his fave part of making this and he immediately responded with his talk with King. That sealed its DVR fate for me

    I absolutely loved Danse Macabre, getting King's long-form, in-depth take on horror across print, movies etc., from early gothic stuff to the then-present day things, and I've always wanted him to revisit the topic to cover the 30 - 40 years that followed; this interview hopefully gives us some of that (nowhere as much as I'd like, but I'll take what I can get).

    I'm really excited for this. I loved the James Cameron Sci-Fi one that aired over the summer (can't remember if it was on AMC, though).

    Similarly, there is a 6 parts mini series about Scifi hosted by James Cameron, and it's pretty interesting and cool!

    I bet they'll pepper in King's comments here and there but it won't amount to anything substantial.

    Unfortunately you’re spot on. But maybe they’ll point multiple cams at him and pepper in unnecessary jump cuts to make it seem like real sentences....hopefully Amc.com will have full chats online or something

    I've just finished watching the first 3 episods, and they are really good.

    Episode 101: “Zombies”
    Fast zombies, slow zombies, comedy zombies, teen zombies: zombies are everywhere. Undead ghouls have been around for decades but what set off zombie fever?

    Episode 102: “Slashers” part one
    Michael Myers and Hannibal Lecter. Ghostface and Jigsaw. They are among the most terrifying figures in horror because they are the most real: cinematic butchers who kill without remorse… but are grounded in the grim realities of everyday life. The slasher film is an unsettling embodiment of the violence of the 24-hour news-cycle – an incarnation of our growing fears as the world around us becomes more bloody and uncertain. Eli Roth talks with some of the biggest names in the business about how this brand of horror reflects of our wars, our crime, even global terrorism, and leaves us reeling from questions we may never answer: Are our families safe from harm, when even our idyllic small town neighborhoods are corrupted by violence? Will we be punished for our sins? Will we succumb to our violent impulses?

    Episode 103: “Slashers” part two
    The most extreme form of horror films, slashers have been vilified since they first came on the scene. But they have also been tremendously popular. The worst of them can still be entertaining; the best of them tell us brutal truths about ourselves, our fears, and our secret desires. Eli Roth and an all-star lineup of horror film creators and critics explore how and why slashers scare, attract, and anger audiences.
    Dont look for them just for Stephen King, because in the total of those episods you probably get 3mins with him (I would say that you see Joe Hill even more than him), but it is quite interesting.
    And so is the James Cameron's Scifi program.
