About Me


I'm your humble host, Heath Holland. Cereal at Midnight is the culmination of an entire lifetime of nerdy pursuits. I grew up during in the '80's and '90's, during what I now believe was a fantastic pocket of time that we might never see the likes of again. With cable in its infancy, it wasn't uncommon to see Saturday morning cartoons like Super Friends, Voltron, and Scooby-Doo on TV alongside shows from the 1960's like The Twilight ZoneThe Monkees, Gilligan's Island, and Star Trek. Old black and white monster movies and adventure flicks would air right alongside reruns of sitcoms like Three's Company. You could watch an old Bogart movie and an episode of The A-Team on the same channel, and then go ride your bike for hours. Those years were marked by a huge explosion of fun, campy, and over-the-top entertainment that never took itself seriously, and it shaped my tastes for life. I like comic books, Vincent Price, Alice Cooper, Nintendo, lightsabers, and ninjas.

I'm also a frequent contributor to the wonderful film website F This Movie, where I've written over 200 individual columns highlighting my favorite corners of cinema.
