Issue 34 of Scream Magazine has hit the doormat and shelves of HMV and I’ve had my nose stuck into the pages over the last few days.
The glossy covered magazine features 66 pages (a nod to the ol’ Devil’s number perhaps?) which includes some in-depth interviews with horror filmmakers, film stars and even a horror photographer who’s macabre photographic art just has to be seen!
My highlights of the magazine include an insightful interview with Mark Patton on A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 where Patton discusses the movie’s not-so-subtle gay theme and the effect it had on his career as well as his upcoming documentary entitled Scream, Queen!. Another article that I’ve enjoyed reading is an interview with filmmakers of Turkish horror Baskin which will be making its UK premiere at Glasgow FrightFest next month. Fans of Children of the Corn will also be pleased to find an interview with manic child preacher Isaac, aka John Franklin, who discusses his iconic character, the first Corn movie and sequel Children of the Corn 666 in which he makes a return as Isaac.
There’s plenty of well-written features to get stuck into, including on-set interviews and essays, that will appeal to many genre enthusiasts looking for the right balance of coverage on older, fan favourite films and upcoming future classics.
