I just picked up a copy of Cultcuts issue #3 and I think this magazine is a nice addition to Fango or the awesome Rue-Morgue. Usually when you pick up a horror mag, you expect to see a lot of press surrounding upcoming releases, usually theatrically; but not with Cultcuts. Cultcuts gives you lots and lots of high quality reviews and interviews to satisfy that bloody taste in your mouth. Read on for what you can find in issue #3 along with an image of the upcoming issue #4.
Issue #3 was the first time I’ve ever been exposed to Cultcuts and I must say I was quite impressed. For only $5.95 you get 80 pages of editorial. The mag is filled with text, quality text, unlike mags like Fangoria – it’s almost like a book.
Inside issue three they carried fantastic interviews with Ken Foree (Dawn of the Dead), Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator), Jay Woelfel (Beyond
Dream’s Door), Rob Zombie (House of 1000 Corpses) and Staurt Gordon (Re-Animator). All of the interview where very in-depth and quite enjoyable.
But the main context within these 80 pages are reviews, lots of them, for films new and old. They had a fabulous review for classic Near Dark on DVD to the Japanese flick Another Heaven. Another review I really enjoyed reading was for Toxic Avenger IV: Citizen Toxie; it’s so awesome to see someone who cares for the film as much as I do, “As it stands, Citizen Toxie is possibly the ultimate Troma film.” Nuff said.
If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, pick up your copy of issue #3 here and watch for issue #4 here. Below is a sneak peak at the fourth issue, which will contain interviews with L.Q Jones, Linnea Quigley, Debbie Rochon & Brinke Stevens along with reviews for Death Walks At Midnight, The Diabolical Dr. Z, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, Dead of Night, Corpses Are Forever, Sangre Eterna, Happiness of the Katakuris, In A Glass Cage, Junk, May, Mystics In Bali, Nekromantik 2, Stacy, Star Crystal, Strange Behavior, The Isle, Wild Zero along with a look back at Amicus Studios and a whole lot more!
