The latest episode of the 80s Horror Memories docuseries looks back at 1982’s Conan the Barbarian, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger
JoBlo.com recently launched a new weekly documentary series called 80s Horror Memories, and the first five episodes of the series were all dedicated to films that were released in 1980: Maniac, Dressed to Kill, Alligator, Friday the 13th, The Shining, Prom Night, and The Fog. The second five episodes were a journey through 1981, covering The Funhouse, The Burning, Friday the 13th Part 2, My Bloody Valentine, Halloween II, The Evil Dead, The Howling, and An American Werewolf in London, as well as the careers of horror hosts Elvira and Joe Bob Briggs. With the eleventh episode, we’ve reached 1982 – and we’re kicking off our look back at this year by covering Conan the Barbarian (watch it HERE)! You can hear all about in the video embedded above.
New episodes of 80s Horror Memories will be released through the YouTube channel JoBlo Horror Originals every Monday.
Here’s the info on 80s Horror Memories: It’s been over 40 years that the decade that shaped the horror movie industry began and having lived through most of those years personally, we at JoBlo/Arrow in the Head have decided to create a 10-part documentary series in which not only cover every nook and cranny of the biggest horror themes from 1980 to 1989 but also what was happening in the world at the time. Join us as we walk down Horror Memory Lane!
And here’s the info on this particular episode: The 1980s not only brought us many memorable horror villains but it also firmly established itself as the decade in which macho action stars were one of the most bankable commodities for film studios. In this episode of 80s Horror Memories we take a look back on the birth of a fearless fighter, hellbent on revenge, and displaying a level of masculinity synonymous with the era, with John Milius’ Conan the Barbarian.
This episode of 80s Horror Memories was written and edited by Adam Walton, narrated by Tyler Nichols, produced by Berge Garabedian and John Fallon, co-produced by Mike Conway, and executive produced by Berge Garabedian. The score was provided by Shawn Knippelberg. The special guest in this episode is Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry).
