FRENCH HORROR FANZINES
We Yanks aren't the only ones that produce monster fan 'zines. The French have their fair share with a number of active titles that show their love for the genre. The "summary" of contents for MEDUSA fanzine below may seem a little weird because I used Google Translator on the page.
You can learn all about these 'zines and other French film fare at the LE ZOMBLARD FROM OUTER SPACE blog.
