About Shawn Van Horn

Shawn Van Horn is a Senior Features Writer for Collider. He is also a Features Writer and Editor, and a News Writer for The Sportster. He's watched way too many slasher movies over the decades, which makes him an aficionado on all things Halloween and Friday the 13th. Don't ask him to choose between Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees because he can't do it. He grew up in the 90s, when Seinfeld, Everybody Loves Raymond, and TGIF were his life, and still watches them religiously to this day. Larry David is his spirit animal. His love for entertainment spreads to the written word as well. He has written two novels and is neck deep in the querying trenches. He is also a short story maker upper and poet with a dozen publishing credits to his name. He lives in small town Ohio, where he likes to watch professional wrestling and movies.

Author Details

I am a Senior Features Writer for Collider. 

Industry Experience

I have been a Features Writer with Collider since January 2022. I also work for The Sportster, a wrestling website, where I am a Features Editor, Feature Writer, and News Writer. I have written two novels as well, and have had a dozen short stories and poems published in literary journals. 

Favorite Media

I'm a horror junkie, with 70s and 80s horror, especially slasher films, being where my bloody heart lies. 90s and 2000s sitcoms are my other love. Seinfeld is the greatest show ever, but I also love Frasier, Everybody Loves Raymond, The Office, and Curb Your Enthusiasm
