The new and improved Gorezone magazine is set to make its return!

Back in the late ’80s and early ’90s, Fangoria magazine branched out and covered more hardcore, underground, and less commercial cinema with Gorezone, a magazine, that, in many circles, is considered the best periodical on the subject of horror.

Although it only made it to 27 issues, it left an indelible impression on me in my youth. It was within these pages where Chas. Balun shaped my fandom with his “Piece ‘O Mind” column. I miss you big fella.

Follow this link to the Fangoria website to get your subscription, because this baby will NOT be sold in stores. Yep… there won’t be any censorship debates this time around.

I’ve always used this analogy to best describe the two very different magazines. Fangoria is like Playboy, more polished and respectable, whereas Gorezone is brash like Penthouse, all filthy and in your face!
