About Me

My name is Kat Hughes and I have been writing about movies for the last eight years, mainly writing for entertainment website THN. Although I cover a range of projects my heart lies with the horror genre, with FrightFest being a highlight of my calendar year.

Film has always been a massive part of my life growing up. As a child I watched Labyrinth, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgement Day and Aliens on repeat. This passion led me to study Media Production at The University of Lincoln where I produced several short films on very limited student budgets.

My career has seen me transition from Blockbusters and Cineworld, to time working for both Lionsgate and eOne. Having had a child in 2018, I left eOne behind and I am currently focusing on writing full-time. The aim of this site is to provide an online archive / curation of some of my favourite pieces of work.
