In 1984, he adopted the even more trustworthy persona of The Phantom of the Movies®, covering the genre-movie and video beat for The New York Daily News, a tradition that continues to this day, and authoring two essential tomes, The Phantom's Ultimate Video Guide (Dell) and The Phantom of the Movies' VideoScope: The Ultimate Guide to the Latest, Greatest, and Weirdest Genre Videos (Three Rivers Press/Random House).
In 1993, the Phantom begat The Phantom of the Movies'® VideoScope®, the Ultimate Genre DVD Guide, which began life as a newsletter but soon morphed into a nationally distributed magazine, a one-stop source for the latest in genre home entertainment coverage.
