Shoppe of Horror
It has been brought to our attention that many of our loyal readers have been unable to find Issue #145 ( with our WOLFCOP cover story ) at their local Barnes & Noble. After some investigating on our end, we’ve learned of a administrative hiccup with our distribution service providers, which has since been corrected.
WOLFCOP headlines our Tribute to Indie Horror, featuring a sexy WolfCop pull-out & our indie film experts spotlight recent features that embody the fierce and innovative spirit of D.I.Y. horror. Plus: FROM DUSK TILL DAWN THE SERIES, SLASH teams up with RUE MORGUE CINEMA and much more, after the jump.
Writer Aaron Sterns (WOLF CREEK 2) went on a TWIN PEAKS pilgrimage, taking along his copy of Rue Morgue Issue #143 for the ride – y’know, the one with our TWIN PEAKS retrospective cover story and he was kind enough to send us some photos he took during his travels, including some familiar sites, locations… and baked goods.
It’s amazing what one can discover during a bout of furious spring cleaning.
Deep in the crypts of our infernal archives (aka our warehouse in Manitoba), we’ve unearthed these rare gems, long lost and thought out-of-print . And we’ve released them from the crypts, just for you.
