Frank Henenlotter – Hooked!
– 2 Pages
“Frank Henenlotter has a thing for freaks.  His first horror film, Basket Case, became a cult classic.  Its sequel, Basket Case 2 and his equally odd horror movie, Frankenhooker have again got audiences and censors in a lather.  Philip Nutman paid a visit to the director’s LA-based lair.”

Richard Stanley – To Hell And Back – 4 Pages
“First time director Richard Stanley looks likely to become an overnight success with his London-lensed SF/horror movie Hardware.  But as FEAR’s Philip Nutman reports, instant stardom has not gone to Stanley’s head...”

Fiction Files:

Julian Lloyd Webber – Fiction File 16 – 0.5 Pages
“FEAR reader and world famous cellist Julian Lloyd Webber shocks John Gilbert with news of his first horror anthology.”

F Paul Wilson - Fiction File 17 – 0.5 Pages
“Doctor by day, horror writer by night, F Paul Wilson still finds time to enjoy the accolades from fans of novels such as The Keep, The Touch and The Tomb.  Celebrating twenty years as an author, he tells John Gilbert about Reborn, his soon to be published sequel to The Keep which, if fate had been unkind, would have been a very different book.”

The Fear Factor:
Nightbreed – Flesh And Fury
– 6 Pages
“A fistful of treasures, hardly touched: that sums up the golden marketing opportunities available to Twentieth Century Fox as it prepared to promote Clive Barker’s Nightbreed.  And yet, according to the director, the American launch missed chances and courted disaster, publicising Nightbreed as a slasher movie!  Will the British premiere be better judged?  Mark Salisbury asked Clive Barker the billion dollar question.”

H P Lovecraft – The Call Of Cthulhu – 5 Pages
“To celebrate Cthulhu mythos creator H P Lovecraft’s centenary, FEAR invited author Ramsey Campbell to chart the great man’s life and reveal why he thinks Lovecraft’s stories have had such an influence on generations of horror writers.”

Graphic Novels & Comics – Graphic Detail – 2 Pages
“Warren Lapworth celebrates the fact that Graphic Detail is now six months old with some weird humour, weirder characters and the demise of a rather ordinary series.”
