Like Icarus before him, Salem flew too close to the sun and had been burned out by horror movie overexposure. After being a champion for the genre in his youth, he had thrown down his sword and abandoned the genre he once loved. Upon meeting Graveyard and participating in the many conversations revolving around horror movies, he returned to the horror fold. He now tries to find the ever fleeting good horror movie while being tortured with the cheese and camp that Graveyard loves so much. Since being traumatized by E.T. in 1982, Salem has been on a quest to find a movie that matches that terror. Until then, he is being forced to watch and rate increasing cheesy and terrible horror movies. His heart belongs to Sci Fi, but the border between that genre and horror has produced some of the best movies ever made. He continues on his quest with the assistance of Graveyard, who joins, counters, and sometimes even reigns in his fevered ramblings. Long Live the New Flesh!
