I’m a Puerto Rican freelance writer and film critic and a member of OFTA, PIFC, and GFCA. I got raised watching horror films like Nightmare on Elm Street, Evil Dead, Carrie, Alien, amongst others, and ever since then, I have been in love with the genre (hence David Cronenberg being one of my favorite directors, and Julia Ducournau’s Raw is my favorite film of all time).”
