Cesar

aka... Bones, Cesspool, C.

Comedian. Podcaster. Comic book artist. Cesar was vomited up from the stygian depths and cyclopean black fields of outer darkness... Jacksonville FL! Ever since his parents took him to see The Fly at the tender age of 6, horror has been his first love. There will alway be a soft spot for the monster in his shriveled, lifeless heart, as his favorite book is Mary Wollsonecraft Shelley's Frankenstein!

Among his favorites are: Poltergeist, The Fly, An American Werewolf in London, The Exorcist and Bram Stoker's Dracula

Ross

aka... Rickety, Rickety Cricket, Danger-Ross

Builder, Drone Pilot, lover of all things game and sport. Ross is a founding member of Straight Chilling, including twin brother Jack (who often appears as a guest). Though first introduced to horror through the classic Abbot and Costello spoofs, Ross's interest in horror was birthed from a love of sci-fi. His first sci-fi/horror loves include The Predator and accidentally Event Horizon.

Among his favorites are The Conjuring, Stranger Things, Penny Dreadful & Prometheus.

 

Drew

aka... Drewbie, Designated Drew, Resident Serial Killer

Level 4 projection operator, film score lover, Star Wars super fan and a man of principles, Drew came to appreciate horror after joining the cast of Straight Chilling. Drew’s encyclopedic knowledge of film and comparative indifference to the horror genre provided a nice counterpoint to the crew's conversations.

Among his favorite horror films are El Orfanato, Gremlins, The Babadook and Jurassic Park. ("It's a thriller. It counts.")

DJ Elzebub

aka... Old Scratch, Upside-Down-Crossfader

DJ Elzebub is a totally legit demon DJ, who began by spinning at the crossroads in Brooklyn. His rivalry with DJ Kool Herc, the creation of Hip Hop, and Kool Herc's sudden disappearance is the stuff of legends.

Elzebub now spends his time producing Straight Chilling and offering spiritual guidance to the boys.
