Author Details

Canadian-born freelance writer and editor Adam Symchuk has been writing for several years on the topic of film, TV, and literature. He got his start writing on Asian cinema for Asian Movie Pulse in 2017. He loves spending time with his dog, getting lost in a book, or catching a movie with friends. 

Favorite Media

Adam grew up on horror and exploitation cinema, which are his go-to choices for catching a movie. However, he tends to enjoy anything off the beaten path, disturbing, absurd, or cheesy. His favorite directors include Shinya Tsukamoto, Toshiaki Toyoda, John Waters, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Jon Moritsugu, David Cronenberg, and Quentin Dupieux.

Industry Focus

Adam has always focused on personal growth as a writer and creating content for fellow nerds. This has included starting the site Grimoire of Horror, contributing over 1,000 reviews to Asian Movie Pulse, and having guest articles on the Australian counterculture site The Aither. Adam enjoys editing as much as writing and loves to work behind the scenes as much as upfront.
