Dread Central Welcomes Crix Lee
Editor's Note: "With all the craziness going on in the biz lately, it's been harder and harder to make sure everything out there is covered for you guys! One bit of coverage that's been suffering is video games, so we decided to go out and find someone badass enough to lend us a hand ..."
Hi, everybody! Crix Lee here, and I am the newest addition to the Island of Misfit Toys that is Dread Central. Being fortunate enough to be born in 197-noneofyourbusiness to a Korean mother who barely spoke English and a father who was into desensitizing his children, I was privy to seeing any and EVERY movie I wanted - including Jaws, Psycho, and Friday the 13th at age 9, which also meant that bathtime and summer camp were HELL.
While I do appreciate a nice bit of the ol' gratuitous "chop up a coed" film, I really long for a time where a film like A Nightmare on Elm Street kept me from sleeping in a bed for two weeks (courtesy of Johnny Depp's death scene) or had some kind of political/moral statement like Dawn of The Dead.
I am primarily known as Editor-in-Chief for GirlGamer.com and Host of "A Fangirl's Guide" (YouTube/iTunes), and along with Dread Central I also write for GeekWeek.com (Video Games) and JoystickDivision.com. I'm an FPS girl and am a HUGE lover of survival horror FPS like Left 4 Dead and Dead Space. I'll be a part of DC gaming, and maybe if I'm good, Uncle Creepy'll lemme cover some horror movies/events here *cough* AFTER DARK HORRORFEST *cough* Heh heh.
Fun Facts: With all the horror movies I've watched, as a child the thing that scared me the most was seeing the TV screen freeze followed by the ominous "TO BE CONTINUED". Also, the reveal at the end of Sleepaway Camp can still induce a nice nightmare or two.
Also if you and I don't see eye to eye about a film or game, that's cool. I'll just tell you what I tell everybody else: Go fuck yourself.
LONG LIVE THE ART OF MAKING PEOPLE SCREAM!
