HAPPY HALLOWEEN MICRO REVIEWS

Steve's second Halloween column this month, in which he tries to do teeny-tiny reviews of 27 movies. Let us know if he succeeds or falls flat on his face.

MOVIE REVIEWS: THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE and THE GIRL WITH...

Monsters

Monsters have been with us in our imaginations from the dawn of time, but why is it that the most vulnerable of us love monsters the most?

Horror Film or Terror Film. Which is it? Karloff and Clarens...

Boris Karloff made 'terror' films. Not horror films.

19th Annual H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival and CthulhuCon Day 3...

As I sat on a park bench outside of the Art Deco exterior of the Hollywood Theater, on the nicest day of the year so far in Portland, not only did it seem like a victory and a vindication of the weird words and worlds of Howard Phillips Lovecraft, but for the whole of SF fandom.

The art work gracing the covers of (most) Ace doubles was credited, another debt we owe Donald A. Wollheim.

SPACEMEN, Precursor to Starlog?

Steve takes us through the pages of Spacemen, Warren Publications second film-centered magazine helmed by the late, great, missed and lamented Forrest J. Ackerman.
