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.

Note: book/movie release dates are chosen based upon their country of origin; video game release dates reflect the first release of the title.
