The Flash is a newish mom who basically seems to be in charge of yelling at me for no reason at random points in time.

“Lemuel Severance” is the pen name of one of my good friends, frequent collaborator and has the unfortunate position of having to read my unpublished fiction, looking at my white board / Excel diagrams and listening to me groan when sometimes a guy just needs to talk to another guy. The name is taken from his FINISHED screenplay (a western) that has yet to find production. Neither of us know why this pic turns sideways when you click on it, but we like it. He is also the reason behind the whole “top hat” thing, if you’ve ever been curious… I tried to kind of explain that here.
Wednesday’s Child is a stay-at-home mom in a small town in Georgia who runs a very self-indulgent horror and cult movie blog. She lives for anger and frustration, and nightmares are the best part of her day.
The first time I ever fell in love with a film was when I walked into a room and saw my family watching the Martin Scorsese masterpiece Casino. I’m sure I had sat through a whole host of kids films prior to this moment, but as soon as I saw Casino I felt different, almost as if my little mind started to realize that there was this new world of films out there that wasn’t aimed at children, and I began my quest to see as many of them as I could. Some of my favorite films of all time would be The Godfather, Goodfellas, Raging Bull, The Shining, The Deer Hunter, Casino, Pulp Fiction, I Saw The Devil, Drive……..the list goes on, but the underlying theme would be the more adult/violent orientated style of film and the majority would star my favorite actor of all time Robert De Niro. I have even set myself a quest to try and see every one of his films.
Many years later I decided to try and share my feelings and thoughts on the films I had seen in an effort to vent my opinion and hopefully meet some like-minded people along the way. I set up my own site Head in a Vice in June 2012, and I try to offer reviews on some of the more obscure horror and violent films in the attempt of unearthing some hidden gems for people. I also run a few projects to try and give my site a community style vibe, including my attempt to offer a review for all the IMDB’s Top 250 Films with the help of some cool guest reviewers, and my Desert Island Films project where people tell me the films they would take if they were going to be stuck on a desert island.
Mark Walker is a Scottish bad-ass who holds the world record for most triple twenties (67) in a row (that’s a Darts term). He’s also a wicked writer and I love his work over at his blog MARKED MOVIES. If you’ve never been there, you certainly should and don’t miss his “SIT DOWN SERIES” – they’re fucking insanely brilliant!! Oh and BTW – that’s his choice for his bio pic!
Misty is a professional writer over at the wonderful CINEMA SCHMINEMA site, as well as, I think seven or eight other places. She also claims to have eleven other jobs, never sleeps and doesn’t eat olives. THE IPC got really lucky to catch her with some spare time when she was willing to do some freelancing.
Catalin is an arrogant prick (his words!!!!) who runs the CINENEMA site. He’s Romanian, he’s full of piss and vinegar and also smart as a whip. Somehow I convinced him to freelance and contribute over here without having to offer up any money (or my body) and I look forward to more collaborating in the future. For the non-connoisseurs, his name is a male and very much masculine name in Romania. NOT a girl’s name like some people thought. This is his beloved dog Gorbachev.
