Johnny Gruesome

When I was seventeen-years-old I was browsing novels at the local WaldenBooks shop when I came across a paperback that caught my eye. It had a skull faced maniac on the cover and was entitled Johnny Gruesome in a awesome font. The next two days I read it cover to cover and fell absolutely in love with the story and of the characters. I even wrote the author, Gregory Lamberson, a fan letter and he wrote back! I told him I'd love to see JG on the silver screen one day and he said he hoped that in the future it would become a reality. Fast forward to 2018 and the Johnny Gruesome film is here! I couldn't wait to watch and my expectations were met ten fold! The cast is fantastic at bringing these characters to life especially Anthony De La Torre (Johnny), Byron Brown (Eric) and Chris Modrzynski (Gary). I especially liked Modrzynski's performance, reading the book I hated Gary and couldn't wait for him to buy it, but Modrzynski brought humor and charm to such an evil character that you can't help but like him! All in all a great slasher flick with cool kills and a slasher killer worth rooting for!
