Christ Washington may not have found a monster inside of himself, but he certainly found the horror that his mind is capable of when manipulated.

A reporter by trade, Sara is a lover of horror, sci-fi, and all things pop culture. From indies to classics to even the strangest schlock, all movies and TV shows are fair game.
