For GOREZONE #29, we sat down with Ruggero Deodato, whose notorious CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST is due for a major reissue next year, for a lengthy look back at his controversial career. For more flesh-munching, this issue starts with a lengthy retrospective on zombies in the comics word and ends with a piece on CANNIBAL FEROX; in between you’ll find a blood-drenched survey of the films of J-Splatter maestro Yoshihiro Nishimura, a talk with composer Hermann Kopp about his collaborations with NEKROMANTIK auteur Jörg Buttgereit, an interview and explicit four-page pictorial with macabre performance artist/actress Madelina Horn, new columns by Tim Lucas and Tom Savini and much more. GOREZONE is available by subscription only (it’s too rough for newsstands!), still for just $45 for one year/six issues, so go here to order; issue #28 is also available here.
