Chris Catt – Editor
A life-long obsession began when, growing up, Chris took regular trips through the horror aisles of video stores with his dad. Chris’s love for horror and other genre films from around the world led to him earning a degree in film studies at Temple University’s campus in Tokyo, Japan. His passion for writing and talking about horror also took the form of the personal blog and podcast The Last Theater before joining Creepy Catalog. Chris’s favorite horror film is John Carpenter’s Halloween, though he has seen Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead more than any other movie ever.
