Michael Allen became traumatized by a leather-masked villain and belligerent spirits at an early age. Tales from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986), The Exorcist (1979) and Cat People (1982) left a lasting impression on this viewer, one that would follow him into adulthood. This long time horror fan would look for the darkness in strange characters, even into his English, Psychology and Arts degrees. At university, this horror reviewer read the classics, while thinking of chainsaws, haunted houses and scary children (Children of the Corn). In 2014, this writer wrote and published his first novel, titled Detroit's Last Breath. Still, his bloodlust was not satisfied and he is currently writing a new novel, which will be released soon.
