Rue Morgue Magazine Issue 73 Sneak Peek!Goon
After the double Halloween Issue that honored The Thing I'm not sure if they will be able to top themselves. But it looks like this month they decided it was time to cover another modern flick, The Mist. Just so happens to be the only studio flick I am looking forward to. Check out the cover and everything that will be inside on shelves on November 1st.
Frank Darabont, award-winning director of The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile, returns to his horror roots with The Mist, another big-screen adaptation of a Stephen King fan favourite.
The low-budget Lovecraftian siege story rolls into theatres this month. Interviews with Darabont and lead Thomas Jane.
Plus: Classic King reissued on DVD, and more!
