Our next issue offers something very special for Fangorians and Fannibals alike: a menu of choice features curated by special guest editor Bryan Fuller, the man behind the boundary-pushing series HANNIBAL and lots more genre TV. Read on for the full contents and cover!
A key focus of FANGORIA #343 is, of course, HANNIBAL itself, with Fuller allowing an all-access pass to the set and the talent; we have extensive words with stars Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen, actress Gillian Anderson, makeup FX maestro Francois Dagenais et al., plus Neil Gaiman previewing the Fuller series based on his novel AMERICAN GODS and Tom Noonan looking back on playing the original Tooth Fairy in MANHUNTER. Beyond that, under Fuller’s guidance we explore horror in other media, with features on fright-film novelizations and the new wave of vinyl soundtracks, plus a look at the creation of terror trailers. Then there are retrospectives on classic animal-attack and “hagsploitation” flicks, Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy recalling his time on Tony Scott’s THE HUNGER, an exclusive interview with Kevin Bacon on his tense new thriller COP CAR and more.
