Jameson-Hesse-pic-204x300

I have a stack of unread books nearly three feet high sitting on the floor near my already jam packed bookcase. This isn’t because I don’t like to read, far from it…I love to read! It’s fundamental isn’t it? It’s just that time is indeed a precious resource & over the decades I’ve found that I have very little of it to spread around.

Exclusive HorrorNews.net Interview: Luc Bernier

What is your earliest childhood memory of being a horror fan?

I remember I was scared of ANY horror films at an early age! I completely avoided any horror films for a long time. I was a big fan of thrillers, though. And then I watched one and rediscovered the genre. I totally loved it! Horror is my favorite genre since a long time now.
