Welcome everyone to the September issue of The Spread! Since Hollywood decided to send most of its big horror releases a month early we thought we’d follow suit. That’s right, this month we’ll be looking at all things horror. John Higgins opened the crypt to re-examine the influence of The Omen trilogy while Matthew Wilson takes us on a two-part journey through the on-screen queens of horror while making the case for horror really being a woman’s game.

On top of that we have a spirited defense of a bloody and brilliant TV show that was gone too soon, a countdown of the top 20 underrated horror films as well as reviews of the new Stephen King adaptation Cell and shark week inspired hit The Shallows. Coming throughout this month we’ll have reviews of new horror releases like the indie chiller I Am Not A Serial Killer, the smash hit Don’t Breathe, perhaps the world’s first food horror Sausage Party, the millennial-minded Nerve, the hotly anticipated new Blair Witch and many more

On a serious note, this will be The Spread’s first full issue for quite some time without the involvement of its previous editor-in-chief Cameron Johnson. So everyone at Cinema Jam HQ would like to take just one more moment to thank Cameron for the incredible work he’s done and the insanely high standard he’s set for me to try and match.

That’s not the only thing new at Cinema Jam either. This week marks the arrival of a fresh team working in the Cinema Jam offices while, in the wake of our first sold-out course of the year, we finish up the last of the preparations for our documentary masterclass with the brilliant doc guru Col Spector. The Spread interviewed Col back in the day incidentally and you can read our first official encounter with him here.
