INTERVIEW: FANGORIA WRITER/BLOGGER CHRIS ALEXANDER ON FILM SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL

filmschoolconfidential2

Chris Alexander is a musician, Fangoria blogger, radio personality, teacher and, above all else, a film freak. To that end he’s hosting twice-monthly movie night’s at Toronto’s Bloor Cinema (506 Bloor Street West) where he will screen forgotten gems of cinematic sin, prefacing them with an informal discussion of the movie’s history, complete with thematic dissertation and amazing anecdotes.

The series kicked off last night with a screening of 1972’s underrated Horror Express, the 17th collaboration between genre legends Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, and will continue Nov. 25 with the disastrous 1978 TV movie Kiss Meets The Phantom of the Park.

The DLB spoke to Chris last night about the inspiration for Film School Confidential, why he chose to kickstart it with Horror Express, and academia’s reaction to horror films:
