Sharuna Warner

Having developed a love for Science Fiction and Horror at an early age, thanks to Mulder and Scully, Lt Ripley and Mr Myers, Sharuna was keen to learn what else the fictional world had to offer.

Expanding her love and knowledge of film through frequent trips to the video store, she was able to sift through the endless watching possibilities. Years later and still obsessed with film, she decided to leave her job and pursue an academic path at university to fulfil and fuel her addiction. In her spare time Sharuna can be found with her nose buried in a book, at the cinema or searching for those movie gems to add to her ever increasing film collection.
