John Carpenter, a legendary director known for his mastery in crafting some of the most iconic horror films in history, offers an exclusive insight into his mind.

For fans of the 1981 slasher classic, My Bloody Valentine, we delve into the film’s gruesome history and its enduring legacy. The chilling narrative behind the film will make you shudder with delight.

Tony Cecere, the fearless stuntman who stepped into the shoes of the iconic Freddy Krueger in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, divulges the thrills and chills of his daring stunts. His tales from the nightmare-infested dreamscapes are sure to give readers goosebumps.

Goblin’s Claudio Simonetti, a maestro in the world of horror soundtracks, unravels the secrets behind his haunting compositions that have sent shivers down the spines of many. His music has become synonymous with terror, and we explore his journey in bringing fear to life through melodies.

In addition to these titans of horror, we pay tribute to the late Gunnar Hansen, who brought Leatherface to life in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. His memoir, “Chain Saw Confidential,” reveals the behind-the-scenes horrors of this seminal film. Hansen’s legacy in the world of horror endures, and we celebrate his contribution to the genre.

To top it all off, this Halloween issue is adorned with a killer cover art by the renowned Mike Hoffman, whose talent in capturing the essence of horror through his visual artistry is a treat for the eyes.

With spine-tingling tales, exclusive interviews, and a ghastly array of horror aficionados, our Halloween issue is a dark and delicious journey into the heart of the genre.
