Carla Davis,Contributor

A Florida native, I live in the Orlando area with my artist husband Rob, and our sweet pit bull mix Zoe. My love for horror movies and books dates back to early childhood, when my father managed a movie theater (thereby enabling me to see movies I was WAY too young for). I enjoy horror movies both old and new, and I am always on the lookout for more. A former tour guide for Orlando Ghost Tours, I am also a paranormal investigator in my spare time, and I am the Audience Services Manager for the Orlando Fringe Theatre Festival.

About FanSided

The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
