Editor's note: Dread Central announces 'Paranormal Paparazzi' segment

When it comes to horror websites, you can't get much better than Dread Central. I am a horror fiend and I've been checking in with Dread for years now to read cutting edge (or is that slashing edge?) horror news, check out interviews and generally stay in the know on the genre.

As a writer who has been kicking around the entertainment journalism world for a few years, it is a pleasure to find a site that does its job exceptionally well, and does so while maintaining a passion for the material it covers.

So imagine my happy reaction when Zak Bagans, executive producer of Paranormal Paparazzi, told me we were going to land a special Dread Central Report to help us further tap into the horror world on the show. Since that time, I've seen some amazing footage from the Dread crew that has given me some horror geek out moments.

In that time since the relationship began, I've also become fortunate enough to meet and hang out with Steve Barton aka "Uncle Creepy," the founder of Dread. He's a cool dude, and I cannot wait for friends of Paranormal Pop Culture to see our relationship with Dread Central come to life on Paranormal Paparazzi, Sept. 28 7 p.m., Travel Channel.

Uncle Creepy broke the news about the Dread Central Report on his site, so I encourage you to head over there to check it out, where he also nabs a few quotes from me and Zak.
