Alex loves Sci-Fi but he also loves horror, so much so in fact that in 2008 he set up www.lovehorror.com with another fright loving friend. The website which has been running ever since offers news, reviews, interviews and more and has led to Alex frequently attending festivals, talking to a ton of talent and watching a multitude of menacing movies, all under the pseudonym Zombie2. Working in a cinema by day and sometimes by night, what little spare time Alex has is spent with his family and his extensive Lego Minifigure collection.

For part 2 of our bad film special Sam shows Alex some terrible trailers from the past. Rogue cops, evil frogs, dinosaurs in warehouses and purple monsters, our minds are repeatedly blown before we decide which of these terrible films will be getting the full on SFRS treatment in a future episode.
