As the nights draw in, The Spread gets a little dark…   

October is all about those bumps in the night. To celebrate our launch we have packed this month’s issue with terrifyingly good articles.

Lynn Klein explores cult Horror classics Psycho and Rosemary’s Baby. Yolanda Barker asks the bizarre question “can horror lead the way to Love?”, whilst A D Cooper shares her insights on writing conventions for the genre.

We round up this month’s frightful releases, as well as an exclusive interview with Pauline Ann Johnson; actress in Gothic short Dear Alexandr.

Ever wondered what a zombie calendar shoot involves? Marija Makeska reveals all. Horatiu Damian revisits creepy classic The Keep.

Plus Emilie Toomela rounds up with exclusive coverage from this month’s Encounters Festival in Bristol.

I was also delighted to attend the launch of ARRI’s pièce de résistance camera: the Amira. Find out how I get on.

We hope our first issue will give you a taste of things to come on The Spread.

I think you’ll be in for a treat (or trick)…        

Ghoulishly yours,

Christabel Samuel
