Gabriel Ruzin

Gabriel is a genre film lover, giddy in the presence of beauty and awesomeness, cranky in the presence of artless junk. His first movie memory is watching Khan die in STAR TREK II as a 4-year-old (true story). Gabriel started his online writing 'career' a few years back on a WP blog before graduating to writing for a few bonafide movie sites, including serving as an editor for two. The Coen brothers, Terry Gilliam, and David Fincher are among his favorite directors. He co-hosted the Telluride Horror Show in 2011, 2012, and will host again in 2013.

Picture this: a movie is made as an adaptation of a video game created for the Amiga system (that’s right – the Amiga system!); its executive producer is Uwe Boll; its two directors have exactly zero English-speaking directing credits between them, and have instead spent the bulk of their career
