Analog Terrors: A Post-Mortem of Lunchmeat 7Issue #7 of Lunchmeat is now on sale via The Meat Market, and rather than do a typical review, we thought we’d post this post-mortem and include a look at a few pages from it. Check it out!

Hey, all you tape-heads out there riding the digital waves—Lunchmeat 7 has hit the savage streets featuring more “Blood! Terror! Babes! Monsters!” With its glossy slick and sick four-color cover and rock ‘n roll junk zine interior, editor-in-chief Josh Schafer has concocted another delightful collection of analog things from genres past, forever exploring the landscape of the ravenous revival of VHS.

This issue is filled with reviews of flicks not available yet on DVD or Blu-ray, highlights of which include Tombstone Territory, The Shout, Madhouse Mansion, and Project Nightmare, none of which I remember ever renting in my VHS youth at Video Video or Video Magic in Old Bridge, NJ. But that’s the charm: to find titles you had no idea ever existed and now you have to go to eBay to collect the whole set. (Or to at least see how much these titles are going for.) But wait! There’s more! An exclusive interview with Brian Trenchard-Smith, director of The Quest (also reviewed in this issue). He reveals in detail how he landed the job directing The Quest, working with writer Everett DeRoche (Patrick, Road Games) and what a “Donkegin” really means.

Other interviews in this issue feature beloved character actor Eddie Deezen (Grease, WarGames, LaserBlast), director Jeffery Obrow (The Dorm that Dripped Blood), Sam Sherman—the one and only who started Super Video (Graveyard of Horror, Blood of Ghastly Horror) and Liana Curtis (Sixteen Candles, Critters), who was everyone’s “girlfriend” in the movies of the 80’s. My favorite and most exciting bits are the retrospective on Thriller Video (my favorite cover art to peek at while renting) complete with checklist and Vestron Video Freebie Jeebies: awesome promotional items I wish I had right this second, which include a Street Trash coffee mug and “fish” Ghoulie hand puppet—so cheap and beautiful it’s a must have.

VCR hurt? Need the latest tape accessories circa 1982? Thank you, Lunchmeat, for a two-page spread on how to enhance your tape monster. Also, never live in fear again; the author of the article gives readers suggestions of what VCR/DVD combo is the best for backing up those precious gems like Three on a Meathook and Project Nightmare. Wait! There’s more! Coverage on Christian VHS, crazy animation and Chuck Norris, but I’ve said too much already—get a copy of Lunchmeat 7 now, before it gets you. Your VCR will thank you.

Published

on

Strange Disc Records has just announced that it will be releasing “Freddy’s Greatest Hits – The Elm Street Group” on vinyl starting this Wednesday with pre-orders expected to ship in January 2018.

Not only that but Mondo announced they will be releasing an exclusive variant pressed on “Freddy Sweater” striped vinyl. This LP from Mondo is limited to 400 and will cost you $25.

For those who might not know, “Freddy’s Greatest Hits” was originally released in 1987. The record contains nine tracks (covers, originals, and instrumentals) with Robert Englund doing the voice of Freddy over the top.

I don’t know about you but this has just made my list of must-own items. But I’d prefer an original copy. That said an original copy is probably hundreds of buck on eBay as opposed to this version for a mere $25 bucks. Not bad.

That is One Gigantic Steampunk Squid…

Published

on

Perhaps one of the greatest sci-fi adventures novels ever written, Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was a landmark book, one that was decades ahead of its time. The story follows the crew of the Nautilus, a submarine commanded by Captain Nemo, as they venture in search of a giant sea monster. It was the basis for several film adaptations and the character of Captain Nemo played a pivotal role in the graphic novel series The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

So why am I bringing this up, you ask? Because Tor Books is releasing Nemo Rising, a sequel, this Christmas! Written by C. Courtney Joyner, the story once again follows Nemo, although this book sees him a prisoner that must be pardoned by President Ulysses S. Grant in order to face an onslaught of more sea monsters.

Normally, I wouldn’t bother you all with this, but I happen to have a soft spot in my heart for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the cover art for the book is fucking epic! I’ve always been a fan of cephalopods, and I’ve found the steampunk aesthetic to be pretty fascinating. Combine them both along with giant monsters, and you damn well better believe that I’m 100% into it! Plus, it’s wrapped itself around the Nautilus, which is already a giant vessel, so now I’m wondering just how large these mechanical monstrosities are…

Nemo Rising will be released on hardcover from Tor Books on December 26, 2017.

Synopsis:
Sea monsters are sinking ships up and down the Atlantic Coast. Enraged that his Navy is helpless against this onslaught and facing a possible World War as a result, President Ulysses S. Grant is forced to ask for assistance from the notorious Captain Nemo, in Federal prison for war crimes and scheduled for execution.

Grant returns Nemo’s submarine, the infamous Victorian Steampunk marvel Nautilus, and promises a full Presidential pardon if Nemo hunts down and destroys the source of the attacks. Accompanied by the beautiful niece of Grant’s chief advisor, Nemo sets off under the sea in search of answers. Unfortunately, the enemy may be closer than they realize…
