MadisonFilmGuy has been a lifelong film buff and got his start as a “professional” writer selling movie reviews to his hometown newspaper, The Fond du Lac Reporter. Though a fan of movies of every genre, he is particularly fanatical about horror film and has become a collector of classic horror film memorabilia. He counts as one of his most memorable movie moments receiving an unexpected telephone call from director Stuart Gordon while actually watching Gordon’s modern cult classic, "Re-Animator".
