    Q&A: Rob Zombie talks “LORDS OF SALEM” novel, new album and more

    For fans of Rob Zombie and his multitude of media tentacles, Christmas is coming in April. In addition to Zombie’s much-anticipated, hotly-debated arthouse horror THE LORDS OF SALEM galloping onto screens April nineteenth (courtesy of Anchor Bay), his latest, meanest solo album VENOMOUS RAT REGENERATION VENDOR lands a mere four days later via Universal music. Even with the considerable bulk of those two projects to juggle, Zombie is also publishing a novelization of his SALEM script (serialized in the March issue of Fangoria), prepping a corresponding album tour, and as a director he’s circling a departure from his horror filmography—a dramatization of the Philadelphia Flyers merciless run to the NHL championship during the 1970’s called BROAD STREET BULLIES. FANGORIA got a chance to chat exclusively with Zombie about his new album for our April issue, and also managed to grill the man on some of the other pursuits mentioned above.

    Maurizio Guarini, “CREATURES FROM A DRAWER” (CD Review)

    The name Goblin should mean something to each and every serious (hell, even casual) student of European horror. The band formerly known as Oliver, then Cherry Five, who were mentored by Dario Argento to be the house band for his 1975 giallo* landmark DEEP RED; they, of the throbbing basslines and progressive Emerson Lake and Palmer-meets-Mike Oldfield groove. Goblin went on to become horror’s only real “supergroup” and represented the proto-rock video aesthetic that made the Italian terrors of the period such sexy, slick and visceral treats.

    Elvira Tees Tease & Tantalize! (MERCH REVIEW)

    Still sexy as ever, Cassandra Peterson continues to rock her tattered black Elvira threads, her most-recent high-profile appearance causing commotion on the red carpet at the premiere for Tim Burton’s FRANKENWEENIE. While she does prefer to party in Cassandra clothes, she looked simply stunning and as if she really were the immortal Elvira. From Morticia to Vampira, the hourglass (figure) never runs out, but it’s Elvira whose legend endures the most, thanks in no small part to the lady herself.

    “THE NEW GHOSTBUSTERS” #1 (Comic Review)

    by: Svetlana Fedotov on: 2013-02-19 21:09:01

    The ghost hunting shenanigans of the four paranormal
    detectives known as GHOSTBUSTERS perfectly melded humor and horror into an
    iconic film still popular today as it was almost 30 years ago. It’s little
    wonder, then that the Ghostbusters has had such a huge marketing appeal,
    ranging anywhere from toys to cartoons, and leaving a very permanent mark on
    the comic market. The franchise has spent years floating from company to company
    (even making a pit stop at Tokyopop for a manga do-over), but it has recently
    planted its feet with industry bad boy IDW. THE NEW GHOSTBUSTERS picks up right
    where the IDW GHOSTBUSTERS left off, this time sending our boys in gray
    jumpsuits into a strange world possessed by the unknown.
