||Ever since I stared into the hypnotic eyes of Kaa the snake while viewing my first movie, 'The Jungle Book', aged 5, I've been hooked on cinema. Since then, I've been fortunate enough to have film become a substantial part of my life - publishing my own fanzine 'The Imagination Explosion' between 1986-1990; penning reviews/features for 'Samhain', 'Giallo Pages', 'From Beyond', ‘The Dark Side’, ‘Shivers’ and 'Fantasynopsis'; and even discovering new filmmaking talent, e.g. Andrew Parkinson ('I Zombie', 'Dead Creatures') - perhaps the most important horror film director to emerge from the U.K. since Terence Fisher.
Presently, I run the 'Pass The Marmalade' website, devoted to chronicling and cataloguing the British horror film; I'm also teaching film on an occasional part-time basis, concentrating on extreme and populist cult cinema; I'm also hoping to get one of my screenplays produced one day. And I'm still watching as many movies as possible...
