Also is that Pic underneath it is that Titan Find I can read as it looks like it's from that or is it from something else altogether?

You´re absolutely right with C.H.U.D. and Titan Find.

I'm currently reading through back issues of "Fangoria". It was such a great magazine.

 -

unfortunately, I didn't get to read it too much as a child -- but I remember certain issues.

Flicking through:

 -  -

I would have loved ALL of these as a kid(who wouldn't?). $71.95 for the Banshee, though....  -

I ordered a biography on John Holmes titled John Holmes A Life Measured in Inches, written by Jennifer Sugar and Jill C. Nelson. It contains a lot of interviews with directors, producers, actors, actresses who worked with him. I am not into porn or the porn industry. I mainly got this book to get more insight into the Wonderland murders. I haven't gotten that far yet. Next book I will be ordering is written by the lead detective on the Wonderland murders case. I have recently become obsessed with the case. P.S. When John Holmes passed away, I didn't know who he was. I was still a young naive teenager. A co worker mentioned his passing, and I thought he played professional baseball! 😂

Awesome ! I haven't read the John Holmes book, but i am familiar with author Jill C. Nelson. She also did the Golden Goddesses book,
which can be seen in a previous post i did on page 9 of this thread. The adult movie industry provides an infinite array of fascinating
stories, from the John Holmes story to the Shauna Grant tragedy, and from a near shutdown of the entire adult industry caused by
an HIV outbreak to the Traci Lords controversy.. and those are just the tip of the iceberg ! Truly fascinating subject matter, if you ask me !

That Twin Peaks book sounds great. I'm a big "Peak Head", and have been a fan of the series ever since I first saw it back in 1990. The recent third season (2017) was even more bizarre than the first two, and that's saying a lot.

Haven't read this book, but if you're interested in the 1981 Wonderland Murder cases I would highly recommend the 2003 film "Wonderland", starring Val Kilmer as Holmes; Kate Bosworth & Lisa Kudrow also star. Great movie, and a nice time capsule of early 1980's LA, with a great rock/pop soundtrack from that era. Sleazy at times, but it's only rated R - LOL.

Also worth noting is the 1997 film "Boogie Nights" (also about the adult film industry) has a scene towards the end that is based on the Wonderland murders as well. Though the film is fictitious, IIRC the Dirk Diggler character (Mark Wahlberg) is based on Holmes.

The movie was disappointing - though I've only seen it once, so maybe a re-watch is in order.

 -

I'm interested in seeing how(if?) it differs.

"I have no problems showing my naked body .." Don't we know it! [Big Grin]


Been reading Film Review June 1993 and it features articles on Van Damme,Christian Slater and Andie MacDowell,movie of the month is the rather enjoyable romantic drama Untamed Heart which scored a maximum 5 stars!


Also released that month were the likes of -


 -


Cop And A Half with Burt Reynolds ( I think the only time I laughed was when Burt stood in a dog 💩),Phil Collins in Frauds,cool Wesley Snipes actioner Passenger 57 and Demi Moore,Robert Redford drama Indecent Proposal which like Frauds is one I have still yet to see!


Also picked up issue 132 of Fangoria for a decent price from eBay


 -


With articles on the fun 1994 horror Brainscan with Edward Furlong,No Escape with Ray Liotta,Serial Mom which was hilarious plus baby shocker Unborn 2 which I forgot existed and I quite enjoyed the original so I'm going to look at checking that one out!


Fangoria is one I've never purchased before but used read all the time in the local newsagents,can remember reading an issue with Halloween 4 featured inside it and at the time I was unaware of a sequel in the planning and I was buzzing and I spent that long reading this article and through the rest of the mag that I'm surprised the shopkeeper didn't get me a chair to sit down on and I bet he thought I was taking the right you know what out of him!

I'm more of a latter day Batman fan, but reading through all these old stories has been very enjoyable. I'll definitely read the other volumes.

This Amazing Spider-man collection contains some of my favourites stories:

Dipping in and out of several books at the moment, but mostly running through the many, many PG Wodehouse novels on my shelf and on my Kindle.

Werewolf by Night is indeed awesome. I have one collection they published here few years back and several 70s comic books.

Another great 70s Marvel horror comic book i recommend is The Monster of Frankenstein (later The Frankenstein Monster).

While still awaiting the arrival of Stephen Thrower's tome Flowers Of Perversion, the second part of his study on the career and films of Jess Franco
(which has been delayed quite a few times already), i came across another book on yet another icon of European genre cinema which came out
earlier this year :

Human Beasts ; The Films Of Paul Naschy

Quite an interesting read by author Troy Howarth (who also has been doing commentary tracks for various US and UK blu-ray releases recently),
with a foreword written by Naschy's own two sons, so this book is probably as official as it's ever going to be.
It's a chronological examination of his career with detailed descriptions and background info on all of his films and the people he worked with,
so we also get to know a bit more about Spanish filmmakers Leon Klimovsky and Carlos Aured, for example. Essential stuff for Euro-horror fanatics !

Yeah, I remember reading through some of that as a kid. I need to check it out again.


I've also been reading "American Vampire". This is a great series.  -

"The series imagines vampires as a population made up of many different secret species, and charts moments of vampire evolution and inter-species conflict throughout history. The focus of the series is a new American bloodline of vampires, born in the American West in the late 19th century. "

 -

"This new hardcover collects two epic tales: 'The Beast in the Cave,' about Skinner Sweet's involvement in the brutal Indian Wars, and 'Death Race,' about 1950s vampire hunter Travis Kidd! Collects issues #19-27 of the smash-hit series!"
