Gordon K. Smith is a Dallas-based writer, filmmaker, film historian, critic and lifelong movie geek with a BA from Texas Tech University. He was one of the first and longest employees of Blockbuster Entertainment, where, among other things, he wrote all those little blurbs on the back of the VHS boxes you took home. As a film and television historian, he did research for the AMC Network interview shows Reflections On the Silver Screen and Movies 101, as well as documentaries for the A&E and Lifetime Channel networks. His work in reviving the 1962 cult film Carnival of Souls resulted in a 1990 interview on National Public Radio. Gordon’s adventures in performing arts include being levitated on a couch by David Copperfield, three years as a late-night TV horror host in Florida, and a cameo in 2015’s Don’t Look in the Basement 2.
