Dan Caps

Born and bred in Australia, raised on 80s action flicks and raunchy British comedies, Daniel watched his first horror at age 12 and never looked back. An avid fan of the gory, the quirky, the twisted and the comical, Daniel enjoys nothing more than a warm cup of coffee and a severed head (or two) bouncing on his TV screen. Favorite films: Army of Darkness, Tucker and Dale vs Evil, Dead Alive and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
