Meet Vic’s Den Crew


UPDATE: 6/2/2019

Hey everyone, just a quick update. Unfortunately, The Den Crew has disbanded quite a long while back, but I will always be indebted to their hard work and dedication in submitting material to Vic’s Movie Den. All the best, everyone. I miss each and every one of you.


Hi Gang! I just wanted to create a long overdue Contributors Page for the guys who take time out of their busy schedules to submit some great reviews and posts on a regular basis for Vic’s Movie Den. They have made my little Movie Blog what it is today and I am grateful and fortunate to have them on my team. I hope you enjoy getting to know them better. Thanks!

Brian Volke


My good friend of over 15 years, Brian Volke is an awarding winning Television Broadcast Director here in Rochester, New York. He is a professed lover of the films of Stanley Kubrick, Akira Kurosawa, Alfred Hitchcock, and Paul Thomas Anderson.

Many of my followers and readers have responded very well to Brian’s “short and sweet” style of reviewing new movies and even the occasional horror movie, here and there. Brian has been known to pull no punches when it comes to what he thinks of a particular film. He has quite the reputation of ruffling feathers with his take on movies and I would not have it any other way.

He and his brother Matt Volke reviewed films for “The Movie Brothers” but I am pleased to announce that Brian now calls “Vic’s Movie Den” his home for his honest, candid and straight forward movie reviews!

Eric hails from Philadelphia, Pa and is a Graduate of La Salle University in Philadelphia with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication. He is an educated and passionate movie lover.

Eric’s approach to movies is simple and to the point: If it looks interesting, he will check it out regardless of the Genre, Actor or Director. That’s good enough for me.

Eric’s Favorite Directors are Stanley Kubrick and the great Alfred Hitchcock. His Favorite Movie is “Star Wars: A New Hope” (1977) from George Lucas.

Hi everyone!

My name is Paul Knoop and I hail from Rotterdam, The Netherlands. I’ve known Vic and his “Vic’s Movie Den” blog  for some years now and he’s the reason that I started my own blog back in ’11. In his “Den” you can find everything from reviews to thought pieces and Top 5 and 10 lists. I hope to contribute every now and again with some material from my own site and/or written solely for Vic. I love the horror genre and I studied film for several years.

Take some time to browse around on here and feel free to hit me up with any questions or remarks. Thanks!
