HORRORphile/Founder: EDWIN PAGÁN

Edwin "El Miedo" Pagán is the Founder-In-Chief of LATIN HORROR.

Pagán is a writer, filmmaker (with over 20 years production experience in the narrative and documentary film sectors), photographer/cinemotographer, curator, cultural activist, and life-long horror fan.

The first true horror film that Pagán watched in a movie theater that caught his attention and terrorfied him was Tales From The Crypt. The following year he was completely devasted by The Excorcist. Other crucial fright fodder that's had a marked impact on his appreciation of all things horror include Dawn of the Dead, Rosemary's Baby, Halloween, and Phantasm. Pagán is also a huge fan of the Hammer Horror films and classic Universal Monsters productions.

EDWIN PAGAN,
                                                    FOUNDER-IN-CHIEF
Edwin Pagán, Latin Horror

Pagán has curated the New Latino Filmmakers screening series at Anthology Film Archives for the past 10 years, where he also now hosts LATIN HORROR's 'The HORRORphiles' fear series several times during the year, including its annual MIEDO MASHUP that celebrates the website's anniversary.

In 2008 he founded LATIN HORROR, an online niche market website specializing in Latin-influenced horror, its documentation, and promotion as a distinct genre. Pagán is at the forefront of the Latin "Dark Creative Expressionist" movement, a term he coined as a means of identifying the millions of lost souls who live outside the rim of mainstream society and whose lifestyle and work is grounded in horror, the macabre, and gothic arts.

Currently, he is penning a book entitled 'MIEDO - The History of Latin Horror.'

Trivia: He is noted for ending his written correspondence with the offbeat salutation 'There will be SANGRE!'
