Joseph Perry


Joseph Perry’s formative years were spent watching classic monster movies (starting with The Creature from the Black Lagoon and Godzilla Vs. the Thing), TV series (starting with The Twilight Zone and Outer Limits), and northern California horror host legend Bob Wilkins’ Creature Features; reading spooky Silver Age and Bronze Age Gold Key, Dell, Charlton, Marvel, and DC comics; and writing mimeographed newsletters about the original Planet of the Apes film and TV series. He is a regular contributing writer to Phantom of the Movies’s VideoScope magazine, Diabolique magazine, Gruesome Magazine, Scream magazine, the Ghastly Grinning website, and the pop culture websites When It Was Cool and That’s Not Current. He also co-hosts the Decades of Horror: The Classic Era and Uphill Both Ways podcasts.
