All of us here at eatmybrains.com grew up with and were influenced by Allan Bryce's fantastic The Dark Side magazine - Britain's longest running, and most popular horror and fantasy magazine.
The Dark Side has been running for many years now, and was the first place we came across the names of such genre directors as Lucio Fulci, Jean Rollin and Bruno Mattei (well, maybe that last one is not so much of a plus).
So, it's with great excitement that we can now announce that eatmybrains has received it's first print-published article in the latest edition (No 118) of The Dark Side magazine.
Covering five pages, myself, Jim and Zomblee report on this year's FrightFest event held in London back in August. As if that wasn't enough to convince you to run out and buy the magazine this instant, the latest edition also features a free DVD, the thoroughly enjoyable giallo The Cold Eyes of Fear from Redemption which also includes some great extras.
The current issue of The DarkSide is #118 Dec/Jan 2006. Here's a complete rundown of whats in it.
