Career[edit]

Tony Timpone began working with Fangoria magazine in 1985 and continued there until February 2010, when he was succeeded by Chris Alexander, a Toronto-based former writer for Rue Morgue.

In the early 1990s, Timpone helped guide the first three Fangoria movies for Columbia TriStar Home Video: Mindwarp, Children of the Night, and Severed Ties. In the early to mid-2000s, he served as an acquisitions chief for Fangoria’s various video labels. In addition, he was a producer/interviewer for Fangoria TV’s Screamography, a consulting producer/recurring guest on the now-defunct Fangoria Radio show with Dee Snider and Debbie Rochon, and the co-producer and long-time Master of Ceremonies of Fangoria's popular Weekend of Horrors conventions.

Afterward, Timpone began running Fangoria's Video-on-Demand network.[citation needed]

Since 1993, Timpone has helped program international horror/fantasy festivals in Milan, Italy and Montreal, Canada. Before its closing, Timpone programmed and hosted The Two Boots Pioneer Theater's monthly "Monster Mondays" film series.[citation needed]

In 1996, Timpone authored the book Men, Makeup, and Monsters: Hollywood's Masters of Illusion and FX.

In late 2004, he served as a producer on Bravo’s five-hour documentary series The 100 Scariest Movie Moments.

Timpone has been a frequent media spokesman for the horror industry, appearing on MTV, Nightline, Geraldo, Entertainment Tonight, Showbiz Today, CBS Evening News, and numerous documentaries.[citation needed]
