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…

Jamie Jenkins began her love affair with horror before she ever pelted the planet
with her smartass comments thanks to her mother’s great taste in cinema. She has
continued to indulge in the genre in any way possible. Before becoming CEO of The
Chainsaw Mafia when Shannon’s career became too demanding, Jamie was the Editor.
When offered the opportunity to helm the site that she had fallen so deeply in love
with, she leaped! You can find more of Jamie’s work around the web as she has been
writing about horror for years. She is also the Director of Marketing of the Viscera
Film Festival for Women. Soon, you will see her work from behind the camera as she
will be launching her own filmmaking career this year.
CEO / Editor
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.
