Schlockmania is proud to announce that Drive-In Asylum has cranked out a new Special issue for you to enjoy as the year draws to a close. The theme is Holiday Horror and it covers a wide swath of Christmas themed horror along with a dash of New Year’s nerve-jangling. Schlockmania is particularly excited about this one because it contains a Schlockmania-penned piece in its contents.
For those interested, here are the full details from Drive-In Asylum editor Bill Van Ryn:
DRIVE-IN ASYLUM’s third special issue is HOLIDAY HORROR! Whatever holiday you are into, you’ll find something here to creep you out and make you feel nostalgic for the days when film distributors either marketed you a holiday horror movie, or tried to make you believe it was a holiday horror movie when it really had little to do with anything merry or bright.
This issue touches on dark holiday flickers DORM THAT DRIPPED BLOOD (aka PRANKS), TALES FROM THE CRYPT, LAST STOP ON THE NIGHT TRAIN (aka XMAS MASSACRE), TERROR TRAIN, SILENT NIGHT BLOODY NIGHT, SANTA SLAY, BATMAN RETURNS, NEW YEARS EVIL, SANTA CLAUS (1959), ELVES, 1972 TV horror HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS, and of course Xmas horror biggies BLACK CHRISTMAS and SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT.
The first 100 issues of HOLIDAY HORROR will feature the first-ever full color DIA cover! After these are sold, it will revert to the standard one-color cover sheet, so make sure to get your copy early. Buy several, they make great Xmas gifts for the horror/cult/exploitation fan on your list! If you’d like me to ship to a gift address, please mention this when ordering.
