Chris Mentillo is a “True King of Horror.” Practically his entire life -- macabre followed, and so he had no other choice, but to get involved. Therefore, it only made “perfect sense” for him to write, research, produce, create, and share horror stories, through music, movies, and his books -- starting first with his own life experiences.

“No matter what I tried to do or become in life, the macabre followed me everywhere I went: In my house, in my head, in my nightmares, on the roughest streets, in the most desolate corn fields, to even areas where many mortals refuse to go.” Until finally one day it dawned on me, and then it all clicked – why fight it.”

However, the problem these days seems to be trying to find enough time to write more, and keeping up with my intense imagination. Nevertheless, if I do (and I’m sure I will) I simply will seek out reading the best books on the subject."(less)

However, writing does not really even “feel” like work – especially when you love doing it. In fact, I cannot think of doing anything different from writing. Therefore, one of the best things about writing is its fun. This does not mean I do not take writing seriously. Additionally, you do not have any interruptions from anybody when speaking about what you wish to reveal to the world. Do you have something important you wish to share to the world? No problem, you can take all the time you want to make it right, by writing how you feel about what’s most important to you, and when you are ready, share your writing with the masses. How cool is that?”(less)
