Gary "El Boy" Deocampo covers the horror film festival, horror convention, and comic-con circuits for LATIN HORROR, providing insightful profiles & reviews with his own original tongue-in-cheek, macabre, fan-boy style.
Gary was born in the City of Angels and raised on a healthy diet of Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, Night Gallery, The Hammer Horror Films, and his favorite, Universal Studio's Monster Movies.

But alas, it was a film that was released in the winter of 1973, where his love and perception of all things Horror would personally change him forever. William Friedkin's, The Exorcist was that film. To this day The Exorcist still gives him the heebie-jeebies.
Presently, his affinity for the horror genre has broadened and spans the globe. His love and appreciation for director's Takashi Miike (Audition) and Chan-Wook Park (Old Boy) from the Far East to Sweden's Tomas Alfredson (Let The Right One In) to his favorite, Mexico's very own Guillermo del Toro (Cronos, Devil's Backbone, Pan's Labyrinth).
Gary is a frequent guest on the pop culture pod cast Fanboy Confidential, is part of the writing staff of Del Toro Films, and writes for his own horror blog, DARK RECESS.
In his spare time he likes to exercise and/or exorcise his inner demons. The little devil still resides in the City of Angels, in a suburb founded by Puritans (!) with his lovely and patient wife, his two equally lovely and patient children, two hounds and his pet Cthulhu.
