STEPHEN JACOBS reviews the We Belong Dead Fearbook
Between 1993 and 1997, Eric McNaughton produced eight issues of We Belong Dead, a magazine dedicated to the world of classic horror.
Now 16 years later the magazine has, in the best tradition of the horror genre, risen from the grave and is going from strength to strength.
Mr McNaughton has released the best articles from those long out of print early magazines in the We Belong Dead Fearbook… and what a horrific treat it is!
Running to 120 pages, and containing over 30 articles, the Fearbook covers a wide variety of subjects and is packed with information.
The films discussed range from the silent days to the 1970s. There are pieces on film makers, film studios and film stars as well – in fact, something for everyone.
Yet, to pick out any articles for specific praise would be unfair, for every single article is of interest.
I would urge any horror fan to get a copy.
Although the font size may be a little small for some eyes, it does mean we get more for our money.
Regardless, Mr. McNaughton should be applauded for his endeavours and long may We Belong Dead stay resurrected.
