Author Joe Lopez

Dubbed, "TerrorScribe" by a former editor, Joe made the conversion to horror sometime in the mid-2000s. Little did he know he'd favored the genre all of his life. When not struggling with short stories, he provided genre film reviews for local entertainment sites and later genre sites who could suffer his cynical views.

It was that same cynicism - and some might say hubris - that lead him to have a brief flirtation with filmmaking. His first two efforts, "Annotated" and "Antes Que Seja Tarde (Before It's Too Late)" both premiered at a local H.P. Lovecraft film festival. A third short, "Survivor Girl" proved to be his undoing though plans are in the works to revived the cursed project.

Born and raised in Dallas, TX., Joe now resides in a small Texas town. Statistics say more dead bodies turn up in small towns that big cities... though he claims to have NOTHING to do with that.

Waiting for ‘These Final Hours’

I haven’t been exposed to a lot of Austrailian horror, but what I’ve seen, I’ve liked. With that being said, I’m hoping that when this hits stateside that it’s as awesome as I think it will be.

REVIEW: ‘The Purge’

There was one of those internet card memes going around that, in essence, said: “I’m looking forward to the Zombie Apocalypse. Then I can go around and shoot all the stupid people.” I think the actual language is more succinct… Continue Reading →

REVIEW: ‘The Last Exorcism, Part 2’
