  • Nigel Honeybone

    "Rondo Award Winner Nigel Honeybone's debut was as Hamlet's dead father, portraying him as a tall posh skeleton. This triumph was followed in Richard III, as the remains of a young prince which he interpreted as a tall posh skeleton. He began attracting starring roles. Henry VIII was scaled down to suit Honeybone's very personalised view of this famous king. Honeybone suggested that perhaps he really was quite skeletal, quite tall, and quite posh. MacBeth, Shylock and Othello followed, all played as tall, skeletal and posh, respectively. Considering his reputation for playing tall English skeletons, many believed that the real Honeybone inside to be something very different, like a squat hunchback perhaps. Interestingly enough, Honeybone did once play a squat hunchback, but it was as a tall posh skeleton. But he was propelled into the film world when, in Psycho (1960), he wore women's clothing for the very first time. The seed of an idea was planted and, after working with director Ed Wood for five years, he realised the unlimited possibilities of tall posh skeletons who dressed in women's clothing. He went on to wear women's clothing in thirteen major motion pictures, including the Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) and Star Wars (1977), heartbreaking as the remains of Aunt Beru. With the onslaught of special effects came the demise of real actors in these sorts of roles. After modeling for CGI skeletons in Total Recall (1990) and Toys (1992), the only possible step forward for a tall posh skeleton was television, imparting his knowledge and expertise of the arts. As well as writing for the world's best genre news website HORROR NEWS, Nigel Honeybone also presents the finest examples of B-grade horror on THE SCHLOCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW seen every Saturday night on Australia's Foxtel Aurora Channel 173."

    I am an enormous fan of all things horror. My first clear horror movie memory is 1990 remake of Night Of The Living Dead. I was nine and couldn't sleep for (at least) a week! As of now, my favorite movie is Martyrs 2007- hands down. I like films on the extreme side, but not Green Elephant or Maria Dora type of extreme. By trade I am a metal guitarist, so writing reviews is a new venture for me. I'm just a hardcore fan who wants to share opinions with other hardcore fans.

  • Daileas Duclo

    My name is Daileas Duclo, I have an MA in history from the University of Akron and a Bachelors in Arts and Sciences from Texas Tech University. I have published numerous articles involving historical events, mythology and legends with the Times Bulletin. I have also published four collections of poetry the first being entitled “My Ghoulish Love Affair” the second entitled “The Search”, the third I penned as “Find Yourself a New Prophet” and my latest collection I entitled “In the Land of Scorpions”, all of which, are available on Amazon. I have long been interested in the realm of horror, my first forays into the genre came in the form of literature at a very young age when I was exposed to the works of such writers as Robert Louis Stevenson, Edgar Allen Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, R.L. Stine, H.G. Wells, Bram Stoker, Mary Shelley, and their eventual successors Stephen King, Jack Ketchum, and Clive Barker. I stepped further into the realm of the macabre when I began re-watching a series of films that terrified me as a young boy, but fascinated me in my teenage years, New Line Cinema’s own Nightmare on Elm Street. I currently serve as station manager for Totally Driven Entertainment Radio, where I host my own show The Bareback Facts, which deals with religion, politics, history, biographies, mythology, and legends. I also cohost a weekly sports show with the station Straight Football Talk. While I am a man with many interests, horror has and always will hold a large piece of my heart. I look forward to adding a few more nightmares to the memory reels of all you lovely readers and I do hope you’ll join me for a scream or two.

  • 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.

  • Jessica Hubinek

    Growing up in the 80’s and 90’s with two older brothers my horror indoctrination began at a very young age. I can remember being six years old and watching my very first truly scary horror flick, A Nightmare on Elm Street. There was no turning back after this. This quickly evolved into not just a love of horror movies, but a fervor to read as many horror novels as I could get my hands on. When I was ten years old I started reading Stephen King and I was forever hooked. I am, to this day, still a “constant reader” of King’s work. I'm a former librarian and currently work in IT, but write for horror websites and short horror fiction in my spare time. Originally a Chicago suburbanite I still identify as a mid-westerner, but currently live in Connecticut with my husband and two dogs.

  • Rob Getz

    Rob Getz was born poor and ugly in rural Michigan to a horror fanatic father and an incredibly good sport of a mother. He and his younger siblings spent countless weekend evenings ushered off in their pajamas by their parents to a local drive-in movie theater, where they were assured to be completely unconscious before the opening credits of the second film were finished rolling. Rob vaguely recalls these blurred images launching such classics as Ridley Scott's "Alien" and "The Changeling" through drooping eyelids. As he became older, he took the initiative nobody else in the Getz household had the moxie nor the energy to attempt and learned how to program their antiquated V.C.R. to record heavily edited horror films from one of the four available channels. Without these nocturnal bootlegs, there would have been no youthful introduction to the likes of "Re-Animator" or "Eraserhead." Rob wanted to be a part of this twisted universe from those days forward, regardless of the role he played. The tiniest, most insignificant cog in a machine is truly happy if it adores the machine. Even a critic.

He lives in Kentucky with his horror-loving wife, his soon-to-be horror loving stepson (he has such sights to show him...once he gets older), and his dogs who could go either way on most horror movies, and yes, he does recognize that he is one lucky s.o.b.

  • Wee Willie Wicked

    Wee WillieWith the seeds firmly planted in his mind by Pittsburgh's Chiller Theatre, Thomas Scopel found the weekly scares he desired. After obtaining a degree and working in the engineering field and constantly feeling the writing itch, he pursued it, becoming a correspondent at the Daytona Beach News Journal. This scratched the itch, but left only raised, bloody, horror aspirating welts on his flesh and he converted to horror fiction.

    Since entering the macabre he has been published in various horror based publications and his alter ego, an evil clown named Wee Willie Wicked, was born. His tales include: The Pumpkin Patch, Lickety Split, While You Sleep, All the Creatures Were Stirring…Even the Mouse, The Eight Legs of Night, The Argument, A Cup of Sugar, The Horrors of Easter, Don't Forget the Fingers: A Guide to the Perfect Zombie Family Picnic, Welcome, The Christmas Help, and more.

    He has written two novellas, Twitch and The Daily Death – How I Killed My Co-Workers In 30 Days, a collection of macabre fictional death tales.
