Screem Magazine #40 (Robot Monster Cover)
Screem Magazine celebrates two milestones! We've hit the BIG "4-0," and the silent classic horror film NOSFERATU made its theatrical debut one hundred years ago. To mark this occasion, Screem invited Dacre Stoker, the great-grandnephew of Bram Stoker (the author of the novel Dracula in 1897), to write an article on the history regarding the controversial plagiarism by F.W. Murnau's 1922 German film version of the vampire story. It's a fascinating read that will clear up many of the false rumors surrounding the film and the novel. Screem welcomes back Andy Rausch, whose column "The Director's Chair" returns once again in this issue. Andy's guest is director Allan Arkush (Rock 'n' Roll High School, Get Crazy, Heartbeeps), who chats about his life in the film industry. John-Paul Checkett's column, "Deep Focus," dissects the 2016 film Prevenge. This cinematic gem, from actress turned director Alice Lowe, is a quirky horror flick that is worth your time. Author Thom Shubilla takes readers back to the Swinging Sixties with his new book Primetime 1966-1967, where television was king and the battle for program ratings was at an all-time high. It's a fascinating read, and we're certain many Screem readers will have fond memories about this era in history. Norman J. Warren: Gentleman of Terror is a new book that looks at the life of the acclaimed horror director (Inseminoid, Terror, Prey, Satan's Slave) by Adam Locks and Adrian Smith. The authors talk about their latest project and reminisce about the late, great Mr. Warren. Screem #40 marks our largest section of movie reviews, and our limited edition cover featuring the lovable ROBOT MONSTER (artwork by Mark Maddox) is the icing on the cake!
