About Certified Forgotten

In 2019, I asked fellow film critic Matthew Monagle a question: how many smart horror films did he think have been forgotten due to an absence of RottenTomatoes reviews? Hours of discussion later, our podcast Certified Forgotten was born.

The feedback we’ve received over this past year has been incredible. Thanks to your continued support, we have been able to expand our guest list and bring incredible movies to the attention of a new generation of fans. And now, with your help, we want to try something even more ambitious.

While the horror genre has never been more popular, it can still be a challenge for those who specialize in horror criticism to find paying opportunities. This is where we hope to contribute. Our motivation behind launching an accompanying online publication is to provide horror journalists with another paid platform for their work, allowing writers to focus on a genre that, more than ever, needs their expert analysis and unique personal experiences. In keeping with the goal of the podcast, the essays and articles featured on Certified Forgotten will focus on (but not be limited to) underseen historical and contemporary horror films.

In exchange for your support, we promise that every penny of the Patreon will be put directly back into the Certified Forgotten community. Your contributions will help create a home for content that's inquisitive, engaging, and most of all, no longer forgotten or ignored.

So on behalf of both “The Matts,” from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your generosity and advocation. Remember, "Only the forgotten are truly dead."
