From ancient history to modern day, this special profile explores the myths and truths about witches.

A 1979 investigation into the Amityville Horror, done around the time the movie was released and before the talk of a possible hoax really started to gain popularity. This program is notable because it contains the only known on-camera interview by the priest who blessed the house (and who confirms his experiences in the house, despite what the Cromartys claimed in the later episode of "That's Incredible"). Also notable for containing rare glimpses of the Lutzes with their real children, filmed by the "In Search Of" crew.
Blood, Boobs and Beast tells the compelling story of Don Dohler, whose movies have been called everything from oddly brilliant to some of the worst films of all time. Despite his critics, Dohler has gotten all 9 of his sci-fi and horror films distributed internationally, as well as TV syndication for his first film, The Alien Factor. Dohler has also inspired artists and filmmakers such as Robert Crumb (Fritz the Cat), JJ Abrams (Creator of TV show Lost ) and Art Speigelman (Maus) with his underground comix character ProJunior, and his DIY filmmaking magazine, Cinemagic.

The salacious and uproarious American Grindhouse explores the hidden history of the exploitation film, those popular purveyors of cheap sex and violence. It emerged from the tents of carnie sideshows into features like Freaks, and mutated from there to change with the times. There were the rebellious teen flicks of the Eisenhower 50s, bloody gore-fests and drug movies of the turbulent 60s, and the Blaxploitation boom in the 70s. American Grindhouse takes a fascinating look at the films, filmmakers, shysters, and hustlers who made it all happen. Narrated by Academy Award nominee Robert Forster (Jackie Brown), with exclusive interviews with filmmakers, actors and critics Herschell Gordon Lewis, Joe Dante, Larry Cohen, John Landis, Fred Williamson, Kim Morgan and many more. Featuring over 200 clips from some of the most outrageous movies ever made, American Grindhouse is the most comprehensive documentary ever made on these masterpieces of the lowbrow.

Nightmares in Red, White and Blue: The Evolution of the American Horror Film is a feature-length documentary based on the book of the same name by Joseph Maddrey. It examines the idea that horror films reflect the times and places in which they are made – illustrating how classic monster movies exploited the anxieties of war-time generations, and how more savage modern horror films stem from the psychic fallout of America’s counterculture movement and the subsequent rise of increasingly conservative political forces.
