Pleased to meet you, hope you guessed my name.

My name is Nathan, and I’m a horror movie addict. OK, now that we’ve got that out of the way, let me tell you about myself and this blog you’ve stumbled upon. I am an unabashed horror movie geek. I’m “that guy.” You know, the one my friends go to for recommendations or to borrow something for their blood and guts fix. During my years in film school and working in various video stores, I’ve seen just about everything the horror genre has to offer. I’ve decided to start this site because I love to talk about my passion, and writing short reviews on facebook just doesn’t cut it anymore. That being said, here’s an idea of what you’re getting yourself into…

Things to expect from this blog

  1. I am an everyman fan. I’m not an industry insider. I don’t get advance press screenings, get invited to all the exclusive film festivals, or get sent screeners of upcoming movies (although I wouldn’t complain at all…hint hint.) I hate when critics write a great review of the latest indie opus, but oh by the way, it will be 2 years before you MIGHT get to see it. Anything I review, you could track down too.
  2. I do have a degree in film studies, so I may slip into talking about mise en scene or auteur theory or some other pretentious film school bullshit. If I do, just slap me.
  3. My language may get colorful at times.
  4. I will be wordy. As I said, until now, my movie reviews have been limited to 420 characters. Now I can rant about movies, and as many of you know, get me talking about movies and sometimes it’s hard to get me to shut up.
  5. My reviews of new releases may be a couple of weeks behind. As of the start of 2011, and hence the beginning of this blog, I am unemployed. Therefore, I wait for much of the theatrical fare to hit the discount theaters.
  6. I will state the good things about movies I hate and address the faults of movies I love. No movie is flawless, nor is any movie without a single redeeming quality. Except maybe Twilight.
  7. I will bash Twilight every chance I get. I will bash M. Night Shamalamadingdong every chance I get also.
  8. I will NOT be discussing the latest word to come down the rumor mill. I could care less who is rumored to be directing the remake of whatever reportedly starring whoever. You want the latest whisperings amongst the fanboys, there are plenty of sites for that.
  9. If I know you in real life, I might talk about you on the blog. Just so you know.
  10. I think everyone is entitled to my opinion.

Basically, I’m just here to talk about horror and have a good time. I hope you enjoy reading it too. Feel free to give me feedback. If there’s something you want me to write about, tell me. I want this blog to be as interactive as possible. So stick around. Sit a spell. Actually, to tell you the truth, that door behind you is locked. You ain’t going anywhere…
