Darren Farkas

Awkward film geek that has a secret double life as a film rambler, wanderer and sometimes reviewer. I love schlocky horror films, cheesy action flicks and ninja movies. Cannot go an hour without referencing a bizarre pieces of media: “Wubalubadubdub”, “Oh Hai Mark”, “I hate sand”. Where are those references from? I dunno, but you will be sure that they will come up in my reviews and interviews into the exciting world of cinema.
