Old school 'zine feel but tons of new content.
I am barely 1/4 the way through but I am loving it - an extremely substantial product.
Not for the kids, but the T&A is not too much for teens I suppose - I saw much worse when I was that age ;)
Anyway - now I am compelled to start ordering the back issues.
Well played gentlemen ...
UPDATE 07NOV2013: I just finished the in-depth Hindu Goddess Film review (pgs 126-154) and it was pretty amazing.
I hope this guy is using this for his Doctorate Thesis or something.
Well it starts with a short piece "in memoriam" for Ray Harryhausen (who's creatures get one of three of the variant covers).
This is followed by a whopping 55 pages of articles on topics as wide ranging as "the legacy of Sonny Chiba" to Larry Cohen to "10 Weirdest Improvised Weoapons". My favorites were "the search for Weng Weng: Shooting Diary" and Brian Harris's funny reviews of SyFy channel movies.
Then they have a trio of interesting interviews, including one with artist/printmaker Tim Doyle.
Pages 88 through 162 are the "Columns and Regular Features" which includes another big installment in Tim Paxtons on going exploration of fantastic cinema from India (this is Part Five). Many of the columns are reviews based loosely around a theme, like films plucked randomly from one of those poor quality bargin bin box sets).
Finally there's another 25 pages of random reviews!
This is a huge fun read folks! Godfrey Ho! More Mexican Monsters! Stephen Bissette!
I particularly loved the Godfrey Ho and Joe D'Amato articles included in this latest issue, as well as the attention paid to multi-set movie pack diving, a particular hobby of mine which has led to some surprising and welcomed scores on many a Mill Creek or VideoAsia DVD set.
For your money, there are few film fanzines out there which compare to Weng's Chop right now.
Issue #4 isn't an issue. It's a book. Really. At 215 pages of magazine sized stock this thing is a beast! Nicely bound and printed, this one will stand the test of time as well. When I recieved this in the mail i was shocked and just how fat the thing is. They're charging fanzine prices ($9!) for a full fledged book. Inside you'll find tons of reviews (of course), a retrospective on Harryhausen, articles on: the films of Larry Cohen, Joe D'Amato, crazy Indian fantasy films, Mexican Monsters, Godfrey Ho, Sonny Chiba, and a boatload more.
Had this issue been half as long I would have been really really happy, but I'm blown away. This is the epitome of giving value for money. The writing is sharp and fun, delving into a wide variety of cult film genres. This isn't just a horror mag, not by a long shot. For those of us who enjoy our cult from around the world and around the spectrum of sleaze, you can do no better than Weng's Chop.
