Are you a horror movie fan?  I love them.  When I was growing up I bought a Fangoria magazine every chance I would get.  I would take the posters and hang them on my wall right along side my Guns n' Roses and Metallica posters.

Nightmare on Elm Street has always been my favorite. I remember an older brother of one of my friends was watching it and I walked in on the Johnny Depp scene and it blew my mind.  I was horrified and somewhat intrigued.

What was the story behind that scene?  Why was there someone sucking him into the bed?  I had to learn more and became obsessed.

I also am a fan of Rob Zombie.  And when he came to town I was able to interview him on the day he won the rights back for House of 1000 Corpses which is one of my favorites.
