27 Episodes

Images of unforgettable terror and strange beauty exist side by side in these darkly imaginative works that fuse genre chills with formal innovation. Tapping into horror’s potential to manifest our subconscious fears, visionary directors like David Lynch (ERASERHEAD), Dario Argento (SUSPIRIA), and Georges Franju (EYES WITHOUT A FACE) embrace the genre’s surreal side, inviting us on hallucinatory journeys into dreamlike dread. From cult classics (CARNIVAL OF SOULS) and influential landmarks (NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD) to international shockers (CURE) and one-of-a-kind hybrids (THE LURE), these films push the genre to its most out-there limits.
