The newest issue of FANGORIA (#313) has hit the stands. As usual, it's packed with loads of chewy monster goodness, including their views on the upcoming DARK SHADOWS flick (I'm still bummed about Joanathan Frid's passing, aren't you?). There's also tons of new movie reviews, interviews, as well as regular columns by the most fetching Debbie Rochon and the most fearsome Bert I. Gordon.
But, easily the coolest thing of all in FANGO #313 is a letter by a certain monster magazine blogger. And if that's not enough to get you to the nearest brick and mortar comic shop or book establishment to pick up a copy, then your zombie shamble is listing a little too far to the left, pal!
Here's the lineup of contents:
FEATURE: “THE THEATRE BIZARRE” The shock omnibus has literally knocked out international audiences.
INTERVIEW: JENNY AGUTTER Love meant never having to say you’re furry for the “American Werewolf in London” actress.
ON SET: “MOTHER’S DAY” The setting is more civilized in this remake, but what goes on inside it sure isn’t.
PREVIEW: “THE RAVEN” Everyone loves digging into Edgar Allan Poe, especially John Cusack, playing the author as detective.
RETROSPECTIVE: “GOTHIC,” PART TWO Actor Julian Sands was willingly swept away into Ken Russell’s cinematic dementia.
INTERVIEW: MARIE WALLACE She wore many faces—most of them crazed—as she took multiple roles in TV’s “Dark Shadows.”
PREVIEW: “DARK SHADOWS”: HELENA BONHAM CARTER Her on- and offscreen partnership with Tim Burton now leads her to Collinwood.
PREVIEW: “SOUTH TEXAS BLUES,” PART FOUR More of our advance peek at Christopher P. Garetano’s “Chainsaw” comic.
PREVIEW: “DARK SHADOWS”: TIM BURTON He’s done ghosts, apes and a headless horseman, so it’s about time he tackled vampires.
PREVIEW: “DARK SHADOWS”: RICHARD D. ZANUCK A producing career highlighted by “Jaws” now sees him entering the world of fangs.
PREVIEW: “TERROR OF DRACULA” As the title suggests, this grassroots feature wants to put the fear back into bloodsucking.
INTERVIEW: RONNIE SCRIBNER As a junior “ ’Salem’s Lot” ghoul, he elicited TV terror before his teens.
PREVIEW: “TALES OF POE” Indie filmmakers Bart Mastronardi and Alan Rowe Kelly wring new twists on 19th-century stories.
DIARY OF THE DEB: “WON TON BABY!” In a Chinese restaurant, Debbie discovers some serious bad taste.
PREVIEW: “THE WICKER TREE” Robin Hardy returns to pagan territory, but this is no mere rehash of “The Wicker Man.”
INTERVIEW: PATTY McCORMACK Her perfectly evil child in “The Bad Seed” was a model for decades of bad kids to follow.
LIFE IN THE BOX: “HELLRAISER” The first installment of a multipart chat with Doug Bradley recalls his first Cenobite of Clive Barker’s mythology.
