SAM’S NOTE: I love when a new Drive-In Asylum comes out. This issue has an article from me about Santo and Blue Demon Vs. The Monsters, as well as several paintings I made of Cheryl Rainbeaux Smith! I even included a sneak preview below!
Here’s the hype!
Richard Blackburn’s Lemora: A Child’s Tale of the Supernatural is one of those films that has gained momentum over the years. Now considered an unsung classic of low budget cinema, Lemora continues to haunt the imagination of those who appreciate the unique, terrifying world that it contains within its reels. Richard Blackburn talks to DIA about the creation of the film, as well as his involvement in cult phenomenon Eating Raoul – and even better, the interview is conducted by Harry Guerro of Garagehouse Pictures and Exhumed Films.
Other features in #18 include a list of our top 5 favorite releases from Something Weird Video, a profile of Doris Wishman’s career in exploitation films, and of course reviews of fantastic films selected by DIA reviewers. We talk about Santo and Blue Demon Vs. The Monsters, The Big Boss, Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning, Horror of the Zombies, She Mob, U.F.O. Abduction (aka The McPherson Tape) and Dark August.
We’ve got plenty of the vintage newsprint ads you love to see in DIA too, with galleries devoted to actor John Saxon, nightmarish wedding fails, the return of Also Known As (movies in disguise with alternate titles), and lots more!
5.5 x 8.5, black and white (some pages are printed on colored paper), 52 pages.
You can buy it at the Drive-In Asylum Etsy store!
