In this issue

Just in time for THE TOXIC AVENGER’s big-screen return and the milestone anniversaries of not only the hulking, green-hued hero himself, but the infamous movie studio that birthed him too, TROMA ENTERTAINMENT’s fearless leader LLOYD KAUFMAN joins us for an exclusive chat chronicling the entire history of his most iconic creation. Here’s to you, Toxie!

Also in this issue:

- Hit horror director Damien Leone teases what we can expect from Art the Clown’s next blood-drenched adventure, TERRIFIER 3.

- Because you’ll no doubt already be fed up to the gizzards with Mariah, our Christmas gift to you is A VERY MERRY STARBURST MIXTAPE – a countdown of our Top 10 geek-friendly seasonal tunes to get you through!

- We reminisce with director CATHERINE HARDWICKE on her risky, modestly budgeted vampire drama that immediately became a surprise global phenomenon 15 years ago this year... Twilight.

- Oscar-winning filmmaker and editor THELMA SCHOONMAKER takes us through the keyhole to look at the restoration of 1960’s Peeping Tom, a controversial classic from her late husband, Michael Powell.

- Buffy the Vampire Slayer star JULIET LANDAU opens up about her first feature film as writer/director, A Place Among the Dead.

- Calling all grapple fans – get a rare look behind the mask of one of British wrestling’s most enigmatic characters, KENDO NAGASAKI, as the man himself tells us about his rise to superstardom.

- As well as being a celebrated musician, blink-182’s TOM DELONGE has also just helmed his first movie, Monsters of California. Tom joins us to talk UFO disclosure, directing Bigfoot, and the delights of practical effects.

All this and much, MUCH more!

Memoirs Of The Dead

It’s over 40 years since George A. Romero’s seminal zombie sequel DAWN OF THE DEAD first terrorised the planet, forever changing our demeanour when visiting the local shopping mall. On the eve of its latest disinterment - this time in 4K - we spoke to two actors who lived to tell the tale…

INDEPENDENTS DAY - FC RABBATH

Born in Alexandra, Egypt in October 1986, director/writer FRED ‘FC’ RABBATH has been an inventor, author, comedian, journalist, and all around entrepreneur. He’s also hugely well-travelled thanks to his father’s work, which required Fred to live in several countries before he was even 16. Tirelessly prolific, he has written and directed a string of acclaimed short films and a number of features including Scarlet’s Witch (2014), The Hum (2015), The Movie Extra (2015), and especially A Brilliant Monster (2018), which we described as ‘quirky and highly watchable… a psychological horror/thriller that examines the nature of creativity and the obsessions which drive the creative mind’ He’s back later this year with THE WAITING, a highly unusual and unpredictable ghost story that turns slowly into an unusual romantic fable. We spoke to Fred about his background and his approach to his work in the independent movie sector.

HEART and SOUL

Known for re-shaping the landscape of movies as we know it (not just animated ones), Pixar has respectfully raised the bar with delightful, heartfelt aplomb. From the intense opening segment of Up where no matter how lacking in emotion you think you are, tears will still come running, to the joyous Randy Newman-scored Toy Story moments, to the roaring, superhero family dynamics in The Incredibles, there’s an endless array of remarkable Pixar memories. Even in just these highlighted animated spectacles alone, Pixar has imprinted many sequences into our brains that we will never, ever forget. Everyone has a favourite Pixar character, scene, quote, song, and catchphrase that still evokes something nostalgically magical in them. So, what’s yours?
