Jeff Mohr

Jeff is a long time horror fan whose first remembered encounter with the genre (after The Wizard of Oz) was watching the first broadcast of The Twilight Zone episode, “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge.” After losing his way in the 80’s, he then made the mistake of “growing up” in the 90’s and the 00’s. He eventually saw the error in his ways, and while he qualifies as an old fart, he now strives to be an “Old Boy.” And as Robert Bloch frequently said, “… I really have the heart of a small boy. I keep it in a jar on my desk.” Jeff lives smack dab in the middle of a corn field in central Iowa where his constant vigilance is your first line of defense against the Children of the Corn. He also writes reviews for Horrornews.net and Gruesome Magazine.
