Diabolique Magazine Issue No. 27 Pre-Order

Diabolique is a lavishly illustrated print and digital magazine exploring every aspect of horror film, literature and art. It brings fresh perspective to subjects old and new, foreign and domestic – from ancient folklore and Gothic classics to contemporary film releases and modern literary gems. Each issue brims with insightful commentary, analysis and engrossing information complemented by photos, illustrations and handsome, full-color design.

Issue 27 (July/August), now available to pre-order, is entirely dedicated to witchcraft, magick and folk and fairy tales. Within its pages you’ll find in-depth explorations of the occult inspired works of Norman J Warren, ‘occult gialli’, the late George A Romero’s Season of the Witch, The Craft and the history of the witch trials seen in Ken Russell’s The Devils. There are also essays dedicated to the urban myths and lore of Candyman and the cinematic counterparts of Eastern European folk and fairy tales such as Little Otik and Viy.

Elsewhere, author and critic Alexandra Heller-Nicholas unlocks some of the secrets and delves into the history and influence surrounding Dario Argento’s cult classic Suspiria, while I examine The Company of Wolves in the context of folk horror.

If all that isn’t enough, this issue also marks the new regular column of writer, editor, film historian and Video Watchdog editor/founder, Tim Lucas.
