I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.

Lucky McKee is a great writer and director. He has a new film (that’s limited on VOD) called All Cheerleaders Die ( which I keep trying to find time to watch. May (2002) was one of the best little horror films ever.
