Dear LATIN HORRORphiles:
As you may already know, I was busy in pre-production and production on the short, indie horror film, The Talisman, written by short horror film guru Drew Daywalt, and directed and photographed by yours truly. And while the experience of working on my first narrative film as a director after so many years of working as a cinematographer on the creations of others was an amazing experience, I also felt that LATIN HORROR was somewhat neglected over that same period. SO, I wanted to personally vow to all our subscribers with a public pledge to re-double our efforts in bringing you the best content from both the genre of Latin horror and world of horror as a whole, as well as one-on-one, in-depth interviews with the horror projects and creators you wish to know more about. And boy do we have some horrific line-ups in the queue in store for you!
As part of that effort, we will be partnering and collaborating with the other sister purveyors of horror -- not competing -- to share resources while developing exclusive, co-produced content that we hope will inspire other such partnerships in the industry. And so today, we offer our first announcement in ensuring that you -- the Latin horrorphile -- continue to get front-line news on what's taking place not only on our own shores regionally, but within the entire universe of horror as a whole. So -
It is our pleasure to introduce to you Joseph D. Peters, who officially joins us today and will cover the horror scene in South and Central America via his LATIN HORROR column 'HORROR DOWN SOUTH.' But don't be fooled by the qualification, Joseph is no stranger to LATIN HORROR as he's been a major silent contributor to our revolution for the past two years, providing leads to hundreds of news stories and items of interest related to horror, and specifically genre developments taking place in the original Americas, including an overall look at some of the emerging horror talent coming out of Argentina last October. It was a natural progression (but what took me so long) that I approach him and offer him a writing post proper. And so here we are...
And be on the look out for two additional contributors joining our ranks soon! As always...
'There will be SANGRE!'
