FANGORIA #328 (another extra-page Halloween special) doesn’t hit the shelves or arrive in your mailbox till next month, but we’ve got the first peek at the full contents and a cover spotlighting a horror legend.
Roger Corman has done more for genre cinema than anyone in film history, and we celebrate his legacy with a lengthy, exclusive retrospective interview, plus a chat with his producer wife Julie and a special photo poster (shot, like the cover, by brilliant photographic artist Ama Lea). We’ve also got a chat with DEMONS director Lamberto Bava about his years in the horror business; screenwriter Mark Protosevich opening up about the OLDBOY remake; a visit to the set of J.T. Petty’s 3D HELLBENDERS; exclusive ZOMBIE set photos from star Ian McCulloch; Jeannot Szwarc recalling the troubled production of JAWS 2; a look at the new season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY; a feature on the upcoming FANGORIA Presents cannibal opus OMNIVORES; director Nicolas Gessner on the Jodie Foster-starrer THE LITTLE GIRL WHO LIVES DOWN THE LANE; and much more. Head down past the cover for the full details!
