A celebration of cine fantastique from the silents to the 70s…

Rising from the ashes of We Belong Dead, the fanzine of the classic age of horror! In the words of the immortal Count “I bid you welcome”. Welcome to a world of cobwebbed castles, fog shrouded streets and eerie graveyards. Welcome to a world where Karloff was the Frankenstein monster, where Christopher Lee was Dracula and Peter Cushing was the evil Baron Frankenstein. To a world where Lon Chaney Snr lurked beneath the Paris Opera House and Lon Chaney Jnr became a wolf when the wolfbane bloomed. Where Lugosi listened to the children of the night and Charles Laughton evoked our sympathy for the unfortunate bell ringer of Notre Dame.

A long forgotten age when Kong ruled Skull Island and Vincent Price held sway at the Masque of the Red Death. An age when Nosferatu repelled us and the Vampire Lovers attracted us. When the good Dr Jekyll became the evil Mr Hyde; when Karloff became Im-Ho-Tep; when Lee battled the devil as the Duc de Richleau; when Cushing was Dr Terror and Price was abominable as Dr Phibes.

Explore the House that Dripped Blood, the House on Haunted Hill, the House of Dracula and the House of Dark Shadows. Once again marvel as Dracula rises from the grave, Frankenstein creates woman, the devil rides out, the House of Usher falls, the Wolfman meets Frankenstein and the zombies have a plague…Welcome to WE BELONG DEAD!!!

Terror (1978)

I well remember the very first time that I saw this film. I loved it so much. I had heard nothing at all about it and I sat, late at night, on my own, lights down low, sound up loud.

Doctor Who: the Web of Fear (1968)

Imagine a 7 year old boy addicted to watching Dr Who every Saturday teatime in the 60s. The Daleks, of course, were the really scary ones, the ones you hid behind the sofa to avoid. But for me, as a child, the ones that terrified me most were the yetis, specifically the ones that appeared in 1968’s Web of Fear.

The Giant Claw (1957)

If you are ever in any doubt how big the creature is in The Giant Claw, don’t worry….every ten minutes or so one of the characters will tell you “It’s as big as a battleship”!
