    “CITY OF LUST” (Movie Review)

    The indie thriller CITY OF LUST was shot under the title YELLOW; you know, “Giallo” in Italian. Obviously that titular nod should spell out exactly what kind of films were going through writer/director David A. Holcombe’s head when he began sculpting this stylish, sensual and amusing sex-stained psychodrama. A deliberate quote on some of the early 1970s, non-Argento (think more Martino) murder mysteries that overflowed from Italy like a cauldron of spaghetti, CITY OF LUST is bereft of budget but high on energy and imagination, and is absolutely worth a look.

    “THE TWILIGHT ZONE ANNUAL” (Comic Review)

    THE TWILIGHT ZONE will never die and thank Rod, er, God for that. The shuddery, sophisticated dark fantasy house that Serling built towered over the small screen from 1959 – 1964 (see our recent look at some of the essential episodes HERE) and has spawned ample merchandise, two – to date – television revamps, a feature film (and another reportedly on the way), a radio drama series and comic books. The latter media is resurrected anew courtesy of Dynamite Comics for their THE TWILIGHT ZONE Annual one-shot, three tales of Serling-stained fiction that stay mostly in line with the spirit of the series, if perhaps on occasion being even a notch or two nastier.

    “THE FRENZY WOLVES” (Book Review)

    It’s hard to keep up with Buffalo-based lunatic, Greg Lamberson. Writer. Director. Producer. Author. Film Festival director. Father. The man is prolific (see FANGORIA #316 for our extensive feature), tireless and attacks all his interests with vigor. He’s also a great storyteller as well as a fine mythmaker, and his latest novel, THE FRENZY WOLVES, is yet another solid chapter in his vibrant, eccentric body of work.

    “THE TWILIGHT ZONE: ESSENTIAL EPISODES” (DVD Review)

    As we’ve articulated many times on this site and in the pages of FANGORIA magazine, we adore THE TWILIGHT ZONE. And really, what right-minded scholar of horror and dark fantasy doesn’t? This writer has often said, with conviction, that Rod Serling’s immortal and groundbreaking television series can be appreciated much like sex from a teenage boy’s point of view: even bad TZ episodes are awesome and welcome TZ episodes.
