Top 5 Northwest horror films

Considering his birthday is the same day as Halloween, you might say TJ Tranchell was born to be a horror-movie fan. There was some nurture involved with that nature, though, as his grandfather owned a movie house when he was growing up, and his mother worked in a video store, meaning the impressionable young man was exposed to a lot of scary movies at young ages when most of us are still playing with dolls and dinosaurs. Now teaching journalism at the University of Idaho, the 35-year-old Tranchell (who recently earned his Master's in literature at Central Washington University) finds ways to incorporate his love of horror films and books into his day job, in addition to maintaining a horror-themed blog, Warning Signs, and doing things like chatting as a panelist at the last couple of Crypticon horror conferences in Seattle/Dan Nailen, Bloglander, Pacific Northwest Inlander.
