Alex studied film at the University of Kent and went on to work for Universal Pictures in their Post Room gaining an inside look at the movie industry from the very bottom. Constantly writing reviews in everything from local magazines to Hip Hop sites Alex honed his critical skills even spending a brief period as a restaurant critic.
In 2008 he teamed up with long term friend and fellow fright film fanatic Tom Atkinson to set up Love Horror in celebration of the genre they both loved. Becoming joint editor the website has been running ever since and some of Alex’s highlights have included frequently attending festivals and interviewing a ton of horror talent.
Taking his passion for another genre further in 2017 he helped set up the Science Fiction Rating System. The podcast which runs weekly reviews films in an attempt rank every Sci-Fi ever made. You can find out more and listen to the show here – https://www.sciencefictionratingsystem.com/
