Gregory Lamberson is an East coast filmmaker and award winning author who specializes in horror entertainment. He is best known for his films Slime City (1988) and its sequel, Slime City Massacre (2010).
Raised in Fredonia, New York, Lamberson studied filmmaking at New York's School of Visual Arts, where Roy Frumkes was his instructor. He worked as the production manager on the film I Was a Teenage Zombie (1987) before writing and directing Slime City, then worked as assistant director on Plutonium Baby (1987) and Frank Henenlotter's Brain Damage (1988). His second feature, Undying Love (1991), played as a midnight movie in NYC and was released on VHS as New York Vampire in 1998. He then worked as Phil Gallo's AD and associate producer on the crime drama West New York (1996) before directing his final NYC feature, Naked Fear (1999).
In addition to being a talented filmmaker, Lamberson is also a prolific author.
Dubbed “the hardest-working man in horror” by Fangoria magazine, Greg is author of the first ever TREEbook™-enhanced novel, The Julian Year. Using the groundbreaking TREEbook™ story-branching technology, Lamberson has crafted an intense horror novel with parallel story lines, seamless story branching, and multiple endings.
Prior to The Julian Year, Lamberson introduced the world to his occult detective Jake Helman in the supernatural action series The Jake Helman Files, which won the Anubis Award for Horror and the IPPY Gold Medal for Horror. The books in the series are Personal Demons, Desperate Souls, Cosmic Forces, Tortured Spirits, and Storm Demon. Medallion offers a free illustrated overview of the series, The Jake Helman Files: Afterlife Project, for download.
One of his earliest novels, Johnny Gruesome, also brought home the IPPY Gold, and his three-part werewolf series, The Frenzy Cycle, is set in modern-day New York and includes The Frenzy Way, The Frenzy War, and The Frenzy Wolves.
