As a quick update to a story from Thursday – La Politique Psychotronique reported that Fangoria Editor in Chief Chris Alexander was commenting on this very site under multiple pseudonyms in an attempt to discredit the site by creating the appearance of disapproval.
A commenter tipped us off to the fact that they were able to positively confirm that Chris Alexander had posted a comment on their website following a review of Alexander’s film “Blood for Irina”.
Dr Blood, of Dr Blood’s Video Vault, had suspected that Alexander made the posting after Blood panned “Blood for Irina” in a review. The commenter had used an email address – email@example.com – which was associated with an old MySpace page belonging to Chris Alexander.
However, suspicions were confirmed when a specific IP address was matched to Chris Alexander. The post in question, along with the IP of the poster, is pictured below:
Compare and contrast with posts from LPP confirmed to be Alexander:
Commenting on the discovery, Dr Blood had the following to say to LPP:
What Chris Alexander is doing is lying, and I despise liars. Not only is he a shitty filmmaker but his shills are morally reprehensible.
Even if he had a decent product instead of a half-arsed, no-budget piece of dreck, promoting it with fake profiles is disgusting.
The question now really is: Why is Chris Alexander making fake online profiles and defending his own film as if he is some regular viewer without an agenda? It’s part of a pattern of behaviour that is emerging where Alexander is engaging in deceptive practices in print and online for the purpose of promoting his own product.
Mr. Alexander, was this another pseudonym we were all supposed to know about? Is it common knowledge you were known as JohnnyRebel as well? Another in-joke?
Once again, even the appearance of impropriety should be the test for how the editor of a world class publication conducts himself in these matters. Does it even occur to Mr. Alexander this was wrong? It’s alarming that based on his public comments to date it appears he does not.
