Chris Mentillo


Best-selling horror author, Chris Mentillo, Ph.D., aka, "Doc Mentillo" was born in Auburn, New York. He grew up in Skaneateles, New York and later moved to the Boston, Massachusetts New England Area, where he finished receiving his formal education.

During his time in New England, he began writing about his real-life spiritual and paranormal experiences while documenting them in his personal journal. Many of these "true occurrences" he recorded were later used in his radio show broadcasts. This later lead to him writing about true-crime mixed with horror and the supernatural for which he believes all intertwine.

Additionally, he has written movie scripts, songs, and books that almost always fall into the supernatural horror genre or the Macabre. Other Authors such as H. P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, and Edgar Allan Poe also used the macabre atmosphere in their works. During his time working for a Boston entertainment research production company, Chris Mentillo helped with the production of the following television series and movies: "Bohemian Rhapsody," "The Grinch," "Venom," television series, "The Rookie," Worked for several Marvel comic super-hero films such as "Black Panther," and Avengers: Infinity War, horror movie, "Breaking In," and even a comedy, "Night School" with Kevin Hart.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book? book, A True Tale of Horror: "The Unhappy Heiress," is a short story taken from my unpublished anthology series, Tales of Horror. The majority of the literature written in my series is a compilation involving supernatural horror fiction, weird fiction, and the paranormal. The style of writing is Victorian/Gothic -- an 18th century memoir.

Not all of the stories written in the series pertain to this style of writing. So I specifically used, "The Unhappy Heiress" because of this reason. I really love the story, due to the originality of the literature. Reminds me a lot of Edgar Allan Poe - H.P Lovecraft style of writing, for which I believe is coming back to life, with regards to the supernatural horror realm.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean everything to me. Without fans you have nothing, and I mean nothing at all. Period!
