Ben Bussey has been a content writer at Eighties Kids since late 2019. Now based in Leeds, he grew up in Hull and studied Drama at Liverpool John Moores University before going on to earn an MA in Cult Film and Television from Brunel University.
As that qualification might reflect, he's a massive nerd when it comes to movies and TV, and as a bona fide child of the 80s he grew up with Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Ghostbusters; all the classics.
Ben spent several years as a freelance contributor to Yahoo! Movies UK, and has contributed to The Big Picture, Film Daily, Age of Dad and What Culture. Ben was also a co-editor of now defunct horror site Brutal as Hell and a co-founder of cult film site Warped Perspective. He has also written some short fiction.
