Chris Alexander, editor of the long-running FANGORIA announced in June the return of its companion magazine, GOREZONE. A title delving even deeper into the sex, blood, and guts of so-called "splatter films" than it's flagship publication, GOREZONE is set to hit the pipeline in September.
In an interesting marketing move that may be anticipating its difficulty with placement on the newsstand, GOREZONE will not be sold in stores. Instead, it will only be offered for sale directly via the FANGORIA website.
Alexander claims that the title has been one of the most requested items sent to FANGORIA's email box. In its initial run, GOREZONE lasted for 27 issues. It was noted for its unapologetic coverage of extreme horror. Now, 20 or so years later, the slasher flick has gained an uneasy notoriety with successful franchises such as SAW and other edgy films, such as HUMAN CENTIPEDE. As a result, there will be no shortage of material for content.
Helping to boost the magazine's cred, VIDEO WATCHDOG editor Tim Lucas will return to the fold with a new column, and special effects legend Tom Savini will lend his expertise in a column devoted to splatter FX.
GOREZONE is set to be published bi-monthly. You can check out more details by clicking on the GOREZONE cover image on the sidebar.
One of the features awaiting in issue #28 is an interview and candid photoshoot of popular scream queen, Linnea Quigley. Interested adult readers can view a sample here.
