McGee (THE IRONFIST, to his minions) has been immersed

in all things horror even before exploding out of his mother’s

womb. Her love of the Universal monsters and Alfred Hitchcock

trained him at a very young age, and he transferred her passion for

horror movies into his own by sneaking in to see HALLOWEEN

way back in 1978, officially hooking himself on the beloved

genre forever, and cementing an uncanny love for referring to

himself in the 3rd person. In the simplest of terms, in the most

convenient definitions – I am a movie geek through and through,

and I’m damn proud of it!! In addition to my Retro Ramblings

column for The Chainsaw Mafia, I regularly contribute blogs

and original material to Mr. Frights, as well as writing feature

scripts, award-winning short films, and short stories, in my

never-ending campaign to bring original, thrilling, 80’s-style

nonstop-rollercoaster-ride-horror back to the masses. Buckle up,

Boneheads - you’re going for a ride…

Staff Writer

Mr. Gable: Avid bad movie watcher, sci-fi & horror book reader, short story author, underground DVD collector, independent sci-fi & horror supporter, awful screenplay writer, personal promoter, soon-to-be (god willing) indy interviewer, aspiring filmmaker, and an all around nice guy.

I’ll never claim to know everything about anything but I do know a little about a lot.  You’ll never catch me looking for the new releases, I’ll be the guy in the back corner of a desecrated pawn shop sifting through piles of discount DVDs and VHS tapes looking for that special gift to humanity that has been long forgotten. And of course if I see the cover and/or read the synopsis and say to myself, “that sounds awful,” I buy it. Over the past couple of years I’ve jumped into other forms of fiction: books, fan films, comic books, etc. I’m a big supporter of independent…everything!  And now my life has taken an unexpected jump into awesomeness being part of the Mafia family writing articles for the fine folks of the Internet.
