Introduction by Harry Kümel interviewed by Mart Sander.

The feature-length documentary “Forgotten Scares: An In-depth Look at Flemish Horror Cinema” goes back to the birth of Flemish horror in the ’70s and shines a bright light on the future of horror in Belgium. The viewer gets a chance to discover long forgotten – and even unfinished – genre gems and to learn in-depth info about underrated “splatter and gore” fests, post-apocalyptic films, slasher films, nazisploitation, women-in-prison and other fantastical Flemish genre benders through the eyes of directors, producers, composers, principal actors and genre experts. “Forgotten Scares: An In-depth Look at Flemish Horror Cinema” is illustrated by rare behind-the-scenes footage, classic film scenes, production stills, promotional art and never before seen videos from the vaults of film-makers.
