Magazine Description

In this issue

There is nothing perhaps more enchanting than a good old folk, or fairy tale. Add in a little witchcraft and you have the recipe for something truly magickal. Join us as we dedicate the entirety of issue 27 of Diabolique Magazine to these three subjects. Helping us to celebrate Suspiria in its 40th year is author Alexandra Heller-Nichols, who unlocks some of the secrets behind the scenes and delves into the history and influence surrounding Dario Argento’s cult classic. Meanwhile, the theme of witchcraft continues, as Britsploitation master Norman J Warren talks to us about his own occult inspired works, and we examine his films as contributions to the British Folk Horror cannon. Not content with leaving it there we also take a long look at the “occult giallo” in a feature focusing on witchcraft-infused cult horror films from Italy. We tackle the connection of witchcraft and feminism from the seventies to the nineties, looking at George A Romero’s Season of the Witch, The Witches of Eastwick and The Craft. And…still not content to leave it there… we also unravel the history of the witch trials seen in Ken Russell’s The Devils. And there’s more…we have not one, but two articles dedicated to Eastern European folk and fairy tales and their cinematic counterparts; Czechoslovakia is represented by Little Otik, Russia by Viy. We also re-examine The Company of Wolves, in the context of folk horror, before continuing on the theme of mixing Gothic with folk horror in an interview with the partnership behind Hex Media (Lord of Tears, The Unkindness of Ravens) Sarah Daly (writer) and Lawrie Brewster (director). We also manage to pack in a deep look at Candyman, and examine the themes of race and urban legend within. The icing on the cake however is the news that writer, editor, film historian and Video Watchdog legend, Tim Lucas, joins us in this issue for the very first installment of his new regular column.
