In the final episode of Kermode’s brilliant documentary series, the film critic looks into the building blocks that make up his favourite genre of movies.

Classics such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Psycho and Night of the Living Dead, as well as more modern hits like Get Out, are used to examine the recurring elements filmmakers use to expose our darkest fears.
