Every ones talking about Piranhas, and of course hot on its trail is the new film in 3D and an old “classic” revived from the grave. Rue Morgue pays their tribute with a full cover featuring the classic art that ripped off Jaws in a time when going into the waters was more scarier than Leather face. Of course it doesn’t stop there as the mag has also included a 5 pages dedicated to … Continue reading

I’ve always considered Rue Morgue as a favorite printed horror mag. Hands down the design work and layouts far exceed its competitor Fangoria as far as a interestingly visual presentation. (Though with due respect to Fangoria, which I read monthly as well).

Add to that a firm appreciation for older material to balance the … Continue reading

Magazine Review: Necrotic Tissue – Issue 11

NT11Cover

Some of the pieces could have been better than they turned out, too much of the best work was crammed into the back and I don’t completely agree with the editor’s pick. But I was introduced some new people I want to keep an eye on and got some more from author’s I’ve liked in the past. That’s what I buy these magazines for. Continue reading
