It’s about to become even easier for Stateside movie buffs to get their monthly fix of Rue Morgue. Here’s a chunk of our latest press release:
“Starting this November, Rue Morgue … will begin regular distribution in over 800 Blockbuster stores across the United States. The initiative sees the leading genre brand find a new home in one of the country’s most reputable home video chains.
“ ‘We are thrilled to be welcomed into the Blockbuster family of magazines and we hope to find new readers there,’ commented Rue Morgue president Rodrigo Gudiño.”
Lo and behold, sinners – cast your blaspheming eyes upon the cover of our November issue! To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Prince of Darkness, we cast in our lot with writer/director John Carpenter, shock rocker Alice Cooper and composer Alan Howarth. That’s right, friends – it’s time to give up your unholy ghost and prepare yourself for an Antichrist Apocalypse!
It’s October 1st, which means two things:
1. My neighbors are obligated to stop complaining about my Halloween decorations for the next 31 days, and
2. The Rue Morgue Halloween issue is now on stands!
We’re a bit biased around here, but we think October’s issue is a thing of beauty. Here’s a breakdown of the slimy innards waiting for you beneath Justin’s gorgeous cover:
Not unlike Fight Club, the first rule for the people who worked on The Entity has historically been that you don’t talk about The Entity. But if there’s any force capable of figuring out the secret handshake, it’s your pals at Rue Morgue. In his very last interview about the landmark film, director Sidney J. Furie takes us behind the scenes of one of the most upsetting supernatural stories ever told. ON STANDS JULY 1!
Also available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, PC and Mac for only $4.99 an issue.
Australian cinema has bred all sorts of Outback psychos over the years. Now, Sean Byrne’s The Loved Ones continues the tradition with a teen terror in a pink prom dress. PLUS! Snowtown mines one of Australia’s most shocking crimes, and Greg McLean checks in with the latest on his Wolf Creek sequel.

Behold the illustrated cover of our May issue, featuring this regal portrait of Dark Shadows’ Barnabas Collins (Jonathan Frid) by RM Art Director Justin Erickson. We gathered the cast of the original gothic soap opera to discuss the show’s enduring legacy, and then got director Tim Burton on the black and white-striped telephone to talk about his upcoming feature film adaptation starring Johnny Depp. On stands May 1! Also available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android platforms, PC and Mac for only $4.99.

In the past, I’ve made reference to the arcane patterns, strange coincidences and recurring themes that seem to surface in the midst of us putting together each issue of Rue Morgue. These common threads aren’t necessarily planned and usually aren’t even apparent until we’re in the advanced stages of production. But what happened this morning while we were proofing the RM Digital version of the April issue definitely takes the cake…
Picture it: you’ve earned yourself a holiday, you’re ready for your tired hide to be absolutely pummeled by that fiery orb in the sky as you lounge around at an exotic, island resort getaway, you’re lazily sipping at some neon-coloured slush drink served up in the husk of a fruit that doesn’t grow back home, and…there’s zombies. Everywhere. Ripping through tourists, eating their faces, turning your paradisical exile into a gory fight to stay alive. Good thing it’s just a video game called Dead Island, one into which we’ve extensively dug our controller-mashing thumbs for the September issue of Rue Morgue. Check out the new issue trailer – conceived and cut by Tomb Dragomir – to pull back the layers on the latest RM….
With July’s RM#113 off to the printers, we just couldn’t wait to share the new cover. Trolls, cryptozoo creatures, strange animal art, a new album from ohGr…are you sensing a pattern here? We swear on a stack of back issues, sometimes it just happens that way.
One thing’s for sure: you’re not gonna believe the staggering amount of monstery goodness we’ve wedged into this issue. The print edition hits newsstands July 1, and the digital edition for iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, PC and Mac will take you beyond the page even a few days sooner.
