What Is The Movies That Made Us Season 3 About?

"The Movies That Made Us" is an assortment of mini-documentaries focusing on some of the most culturally popular movies in history. Rather than focus on cinematic prestige or critically acclaimed masterpieces, "The Movies That Made Us" is more interested in genre fare and films that impacted generations. Using behind the scene footage and interviews with the cast and crew, the first two seasons of "The Movies That Made Us" featured all time favorites like "Jurassic Park," "Die Hard," "Back to the Future," "Home Alone," and "Ghostbusters."

The series also included a special Christmas edition of the show called "The Holiday Movies That Made Us" last December, highlighting "Elf" and "The Nightmare Before Christmas." These two films will be repackaged as part of season 3 including non-horror additions like "Coming to America" and "Robocop." The rest of the season will focus on iconic horror films like James Cameron's "Aliens," John Carpenter's "Halloween," Wes Craven's "A Nightmare on Elm Street," and Sean S. Cunningham's "Friday the 13th."

The trailer for season 3 is currently available to watch on Netflix.
