At this time we are only featuring actors, writers, directors, authors, special effects artists, and/or series creators with at least three horror/thriller/generally spooky credits to their name, or at least one major horror accomplishment. Any and all horror/thriller/spooky movies, books, comics, video games, and TV shows are accepted as long as we can verify their release date.
