First look: FANGORIA #323 cover and contents

FANGORIA #323 doesn’t hit the shelves or arrive in your mailbox till next month, but we’ve got the first peek at the full contents and—oh, LORDS!—the cover.

That’s THE LORDS OF SALEM, Rob Zombie’s much-awaited new movie that marks a new direction for his big-screen terrors. We have lengthy, exclusive chat with the man about LORDS, and he talks up his new album as well. Elsewhere in the mag, we have a major focus on the new, exciting wave of Latin American horror, with interview features on Adrián García Bogliano’s HERE COMES THE DEVIL, Nicolás López and Eli Roth’s AFTERSHOCK and many more. Then there’s an examination of the splattery FX of the new EVIL DEAD, a set visit to TV’s HANNIBAL to talk the new Lecter with actor Mads Mikkelsen, Jörg Buttgereit speaking on the occasion of NEKROMANTIK’s 25th anniversary and much more Head down past the cover for the full details!
