Hello my Grue-Lings,

We bring to you another edition of Celebrity Picks. This week we have the very talented actor Tim Torre. 

Tim Torre is a recent transplant to New York City from Washington D.C., where he worked as a regional actor for almost three years. Over the course of his career, he has worked on over 40 professional film/television/industrial projects and over 35 theatrical productions. Major credits include the titular character in the Star Wars Fan Film – Revan, which currently holds over 1.2 million views on Youtube; principal work on Comedy Central, Investigation Discovery, the U.S. Navy, as well as an abundance of lead roles in the independent film scene, cycling through the film festival circuit including the International Hollywood Film Festival, All American Film Festival, Dances with Films, D.C. Independent Film Festival, Indie Capitol, and more.

**Recent Lead Credits Include**
The Turtle Dreamers – “Marty” (Feature/LA/DMV)
State of Emergency – “Sean” (Feature/LA)
Love You – “Lance” (Short/NYC)
Fraud – “James” (Short/NYC)

He did an amazing job in a LGBT horror film called Deviance. I highly recommend this film. Tim’s character is so good. He is a very talented young actor and I see great things to come for this talented actor. 

Here are Tim Torre’s Top Favorite Horror films:

You’re Next:

This one has always stuck with me because of it’s brilliant satire of Horror as a genre. It’s tight, well executed, and intelligent as heck.



It Follows:

The way that the filmmakers weave this world is incredibly subtle, but oh so poignant. Everything feels off kilter-immediately, which supports the atmospheric terror the film relies on.



The Conjuring:

I’m a sucker for a well told “based on a true story.” And you can’t go wrong with James Wan or Patrick Wilson. (Even better when they’re together).



The Conjuring 2:

See above^ (They just do a very good job, you know?).



Paranormal Activity:

I was 14 when this came out and it scared the HECK out of me. It will always have a very special place in the Horror Genre for me, if only for it’s lasting impact. It left it’s impact on the horror genre as a whole, as well!
The Cabin in the Woods:
 I LOVE Joss Whedon. I seem to fall in love/hate with every character he writes, for all the right reasons. Another satire, but an extremely affecting execution of the horror genre. And damn entertaining.
The Gift:
This was one of my favorite films of 2015, now I may be cheating by putting this film on the list, as it’s technically a “Psychological Thriller” , but it’s genuinely terrifying for all of the right reasons. Jason Bateman gives the best performance of his career and Joel Edgerton’s writing and directing can do no wrong. The film is a TRIUMPH.
The Witch:
 I feel like this should be number one on EVERYONE’S list. Simply, I don’t think there has ever been an objectively more well donehorror film than The Witch, like, EVER.  It is beautifully acted, atmospherically flawless and has one of the best screenplays that modern horror has seen/will ever see. This may be hyperbolic, but I don’t care. It’s THAT good.
