    In case you’ve forgotten, Diabolique means “of the Devil.” So what better way to usher in our 24th issue than with the Devil’s horns being flashed by our cover boy, the enigmatic genius Alejandro Jodorowsky? Inside, our Editor-in-Chief, Rondo-Award winner Max Weinstein, sits down for an exclusive chat with none other than ‘Jodo’ himself to pick the brain of this man, myth, and legend. Then, consider our Jodo coverage a gateway drug to our historical accounts on both the life and Satanic work of Mexican surrealist filmmaker, Juan López Moctezuma, and the influence of The Occult in horror culture and society at large.

   And, in keeping with the chaos of our modern times, our Managing Editor, Joe Yanick, and Web Editor, Jake Whritner, each deliver fun and thought-provoking coverage of writer-director David Robert Mitchell’s It Follows (featuring an interview with Mitchell) and the explosive trend of Internet Horror.

   Rondo Award-nominee and Editor-in-Chief, Max Weinstein, and our new Web Editor, Jake Whritner, each give unique treatments to H.P. Lovecraft’s “Herbert West-Reanimator,” and its cinematic adaptation, Re-Animator.

Added: 05-27-2016

    Our bi-monthly genre journalism tome is getting the bi-polar treatment! In Diabolique’s 22nd issue, we split our coverage between the influence of J. Sheridan Le Fanu and Countess Elizabeth Báthory and the theme of pregnancy in classic and contemporary horror cinema. Alongside 2014 Writer of the Year Rondo-winner Bruce G. Hallenbeck’s celebration of Le Fanu’s bicentennial, which looks inside his life, legacy, and his Gothic vampire opus, Carmilla, Editor-in-Chief Max Weinstein delivers an incisive commentary on Báthory’s prolific and legendary serial murders 400 years after her death.

  On the flip-side, our pregnancy coverage turns to fresh perspectives on Alain Robak’s Baby Blood, David Cronenberg’s The Brood, Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury’s Inside (À l’intérieur) and Andrzej Żuławski’s Possession. And don’t miss our exclusive interviews with Baby Blood co-writer-director Robak, Proxy director Zack Parker, and DC Comics writer Kyle Higgins (Nightwing,C.O.W.L.)!

     What with the waning output of many of the genre’s most prolific filmmakers, horror has faced something of an identity crisis. While some legends behind the camera have either passed away or struggled to adapt their authorial styles to the changes of the current moment, others have simply opted to break free from the conventions of the macabre completely, trading in their body of work’s horror-specific elements for ambitions of the genre-bending sort.

   This dramatic shift begs the question: Which bold artistic voices are next to take the reins? Diabolique 19 seeks to answer this very question, with interviews with everyone from modern auteurs like Vincenzo Natali; to seasoned greats working to maintain relevancy like Dario Argento, and many, many more. You’ll soon find there is life after the “Masters of Horror.”

     Diabolique 18 holds a magnifying glass to horror’s unparalleled ability to provide a window into the social ills of the times it reflects. Amidst a political climate marked by division and pre and post-2012 fears about the apocalypse hanging in the air, the amount of underground and mainstream filmic and literary offerings about end times currently being released is resonating with audiences like never before.

   Inside the issue’s pages, we wrestle with these themes as they’re depicted by everything from The Omega Man to 28 Days Later to The World’s End and everything in between, featuring interviews with acclaimed author David Moody; comic book artist/illustrator Arthur “Zombie King” Suydam (Army of DarknessMarvel ZombiesThe Walking Dead); Chew co-creator/illustrator Rob Guillory; criminally charged FX artist Remy Couture; and Before Dawn co-writer/co-stars Dominic Brunt and Joanne Mitchell, along with a consideration of the writings of the late, great Richard Matheson.

   It’s the end of the world as we know it!

    In the same way the intersection between horror and rock n’roll explored in our 15th issue is much like a Reese’s peanut butter cup, so are horror and comedy – two great tastes that go great together. In that spirit, Diabolique # 17 tickles your funny bone and cracks it too, exploring all that’s irreverent, wonky and weird from the horror community’s most alternately playful and sadistic minds.

   We’ll walk you through horror-comedy hybrids new and old, featuring exclusive interviews with Ben Wheatley, Adam Wingard, Joe Dante and more, while delving into the inner workings of extreme and erotic cinema with a tribute to the late, great exploitation helmer Jess Franco. Diabolique 17: you’re all gonna die laughing!

    There are few actors in the horrific halls of fame who deserve the dedication of an entire issue of Diabolique. Peter Cushing appeared in dozens of classic horror films and is known for no less than three character roles: Van Helsing, Dr. Frankenstein, and Sherlock Holmes, each of which he portrayed through an entire series of films. In this issue, we celebrate what would have been his one hundredth birthday by presenting an overview of Cushing’s career, memoirs of people who knew him, highlights of some of his finest moments and coverage of Cushing’s own memoirs. Additionally, we speak with Neil Jordan about his newest vampire film, Byzantium; and we talk with Nigel Wingrove about the censorship battle he fought for his “dangerous” work.
