Issue #81 August 2008 The recent death of Stan Winston struck a terrible blow in the horror community, catching almost everyone off guard by its suddenness. I have to commend Rue Morgue on not just getting this issue put together so quickly, but making it such an incredible tribute to the man who created so many iconic creatures.
Rue Morgue is showing us Americans how it’s done yet again this year with their 5th annual Festival of Fear, going down this August 22nd–24th, 2008, at the Metro Toronto Convention Center.
Issue #78 May 2008 The focus in this month’s Rue Morgue is something we’ve been trying to do a Dinner for Fiends about for the last month or so; the new wave of French horror. Sadly, there’s not a helluva lot to talk about since there are only a handful of movies that are making up this new trend, but it’s nice to see them put it in the forefront for the fans.
Issue# 76 March 2008 All right, this one’s a bit late and for that I apologize, but I’ve been hella sick since returning from Fear Fest and am behind on everything. No matter, it’s always nice to have a Rue Morgue to curl up with when I’m feelin’ ill.
Gotta give some love to one of this site’s favorite artists working today, not to mention one of the nicest guys you’d ever want to meet: "Ghoulish" Gary Pullin!
There are many traditions that invoke the Halloween spirit: finding the perfect costume, your annual first taste of candy corn, the smell of fall in the air, and getting a really fucking big issue of Rue Morgue in the mail.
Toronto. There's only one thing that can get me to make the trip to that fetid cesspool of drive-by shootings and yuppie scum, and that's the annual Rue Morgue Festival of Fear. For the last three years everyone's favorite horror mag has been putting on a Labor Day labor of love for Canadian horror fans as well as those Americans not afraid of making the snowmobile trip across the Border.
