Hello there! I am the blog writer for Horror Movie Talk.
As a longtime horror and general movie fan, I thrive on feedback and encourage discussion both to get to know others’ tastes and broaden my creative perspective. Having drawn & written since early childhood in addition to directing two short films in college on my road to an eventual professional career as a director and/or screenwriter, I am passionate in my opinions & ambitions on the potential of visual storytelling.
Apart from that, I’m largely just another guy. When not working or volunteering at the hospital, I enjoy a good mystery novel, comics, or manga. I have multiple projects I regularly develop for my own stories, scripts, and graphic novels, including a children’s book I’m in the process of publishing. My other hobbies include walking & martial arts for exercise, some video games, Youtube, Netflix, friends and family time.
Horror I like most:
I can definitely enjoy a well-made slasher, horror comedy, creature feature, and sci-fi horror. What gets under my skin deepest, however, is quality supernatural atmosphere and especially psychological horror or suspense.
Some of my all-time favorites:
Team Silent’s Silent Hill games
Dead Space series
Forbidden Siren series
Juon: The Grudge
The original Shutter
The Ring remake
The Blair Witch Project
John Carpenter’s The Thing
Nightmare on Elm Street series
Several of Stephen King & Junji Ito’s works
Horror I like least:
I’ve never “liked” gore so much as tolerated it. I can only watch that stuff because I know it’s not real, I’d get nauseous from even a genuine autopsy photo. I do have a deep admiration for the imagination & work ethic of practical effects (Romero’s films, American Werewolf in London, The Walking Dead, etc) from a behind-the-scenes pov. Most don’t believe me when I say that I like the first Saw film for its story, but it’s true! I like some CGI effects too, but there’s something about a physical work of art that I don’t resonate with as often on computers.
