    FANGORIA is pleased as putrid punch to announce the mother of all creepy collaborations: a massively cool partnership between America’s favorite horror magazine and the nation’s best-selling retro-horror boutique home-video imprint, Scream Factory.

    Coming this summer is a glorious, limited-edition FANGORIA Presents: SCREAM FACTORY special issue (see the cover below), a complete A-Z essay compendium spotlighting every classic and cult horror film currently offered by the celebrated label, penned by FANGORIA staffers and supported by in-depth interviews and acres of rare, full-color photos. This glossy love letter will be printed on heavier paper stock and sold only via specialty newsstands and at

    “The team here at Scream Factory is honored to be working on such an in-depth and fun project with FANGORIA,” say Scream Factory brain trusts Cliff MacMillan and Jeff Nelson. “Since many of our releases are films we grew up on and that appeared in Fango in the past, this special edition is a surreal full-circle moment for us, and we hope for our fans as well.”

    Fango editor Chris Alexander concurs: “Scream Factory has created a name for itself not just for delivering beautiful releases of classic titles like DAY OF THE DEAD, THE HOWLING, NIGHT OF THE DEMONS and HALLOWEEN II, but in rolling out the red carpet for lesser-loved gems like THE ISLAND, PSYCHO III, THE HORROR SHOW and DIE, MONSTER, DIE! This magazine offers an opportunity for our staff to rhapsodize over this wealth of genre goodness while also uniting our collective fan bases. We’re having a blast making this thing, and we’re sure you’ll have a blast reading it.”

    FANGORIA Presents: SCREAM FACTORY will be on sale in late August; keep checking back here for more updates as we get them.

    This cover is yet another reminder of how much I can't wait for Phantom of the Paradise this August. Needs more werewolves though. That Howling Blu is essential.

    Don't let the SOV aspect of his work worry you. For the most part he manages to sidestep all the shortcomings normally associated with the medium. There are exceptions of course which is to be expected considering the low budgets he works with but again he makes the absolute most out of what he's got at his disposal. Defiantly check out his 2007 film Nympha starring Tiffany Shepis. Its a modern nunsploitaion effort that get this, isn't another lame derivative, "retro" film but its own thing and Shepis kills it, easily her best performance. Also Colour from the Dark (2008) is well worth checking out featuring a fantastic performance from Debbie Rochon and loads of Lovecraftian atmosphere.

    Fantastic. I think you'll find plenty to appreciate if you're willing to forgive some of its shortcomings in the budget department. Obviously with Zuccon being Italian there are some nods to Bava and Argento but he's clearly studied other masters like Borowczyk and Rollin.
