That was fast!! just posted this statement from Chris:

Dear SHOCK readers –

Some of you know me, some of you don’t but my name is Chris Alexander and I am your new managing editor.

I come to you directly from a 6 year stint serving as editor-in-chief of FANGORIA magazine, an amazing experience that changed my life and took me around the world.

I love strange cinema. I have since I was a little boy. I will until I die. I love dark electronic music. I love rock and roll. I make movies. I write about movies. I make music. I write about music. I still make magazines (I also run the fledgling cult film journal DELIRIUM). I am the co-founder of a Toronto-based convention called HORROR-RAMA.  I’m a pretty decent dad. I do many things and I like to think I approach them all with enthusiasm. One critic once called me “pathologically enthusiastic”. I’ll take that.

And I’m thrilled to be now overseeing this little corner of the web to convey my passions and to help spread the gruesome gospel about horror’s past, present and future.

Over the next several weeks, you’ll be seeing some changes. New writers. New ideas. New images. New blood, both behind the scenes and spilling all over these word-presses pages.

If you like some of these changes, let me know. If you do not like some of these changes, let me know. -Chris

Chris did a great job at Fangoria for years and we know he’ll do great things for “Shock till you drop”.
