Ted McCarthy - Reviewer, Podcaster
Ted is our man in the trenches, pounding the pavement on the mean streets of Los Angeles, ankle-deep in the blood of the eviscerated dreams of starry-eyed celeb-wannabes who'd smile through a zombie gangbang if it meant 15 seconds of fame. Raised by a warm Christian family that wonders where they went wrong, Ted had a love-hate relationship with horror for many years, daring himself to watch classics like Friday the 13th and early eps of Tales From the Crypt on TV, only to pussy out halfway through. Somewhere along the line, though, the switch got flipped...and then snapped off. Amidst the rabid crowd of anarchic, don't-give-a-fuck horror lovers in L.A. that he knows as friends, he's more of a clean cut horror fan (no tats, no pale skin, piercings, or Manson t-shirts — he stands out as a bit of a preppy douche at conventions). But a pretty face often conceals a twisted mind. Just ask Patrick Bateman.
Ted is also one of five extremely amiable gentlemen that co-host SlasherCast (up on iTunes now), a weekly podcast that includes horror discussion both high- and low-brow, and more than a little friendly ribbing. If you like your horror discussions honest, intelligent, and a tad bit ribald, give a listen.
