In the making for over two and a half years, we've finally completed the first issue of Savage Cinema. The zine is published every 2 months and is divided into the following sections: Feature, Articles, Reviews, Previously Viewed, and 100% Weird. My two personal favorites are Previously Viewed and 100%. I got the id for PV when I was going through a box of old VHS pre-records i bought "previously viewed" from blockbuster over 10 years ago. Many of the films are in their original blotchy packaging. 100% Weird is exactly how it sounds. I am continuing where TNT's Monster vision left off and giving reviews of some of cinemas strangest deliveries.
When I came up with the idea for Savage Cinema I was the webmaster of the deceased Cannibalferox.com/ Makethemdieslowly.com websites. Not only had i become and aficionado of Ferox but of many of Lenzi's other pictures. At that time a small company called Name Demo was giving away "dot com" forward pages with their banner add on them. I immediately registered every name I could think of. At one time i owned, UmbertoLenzi.com, RuggeroDeodato.com, ZombieHorror.com, CannibalFilms.com, and of course SavageCinema.com. Although my contracts on all of the other websites expired before I had a chance to do any good with them, I kept Savage Cinema...for i knew it showed alot of promise.
Over the past few months I have gotten back into the swing of things, I thought it was time to unleash Savage Cinema to the world. I intend with this premiere issue to set a standard for the way films are reviewed in the digital medium. I am looking for eager writers who want to contribute their knowledge and love of the genre to the bowels of Savage Cinema.
