The International Authority on the Horror Genre

D I A B O L I Q U E is a lavishly illustrated full-color print and digital magazine that explores every aspect of horror in both classic and contemporary films, literature, theater, history & art. It also boasts an extraordinary graphic layout and visually appealing Gothic sensibility which is unlike any other Horror Genre magazine you have ever seen before!

D I A B O L I Q U E is already being acknowledged by film critics, movie studios and fans alike, as one of the premiere horror genre magazines in the world!

By presenting in-depth analysis, coverage & reviews, rare studio art work, visually stunning images, concise commentary & exclusive articles from a world-wide network of established writers and other experts, including ones outside the usual genre circuit, D I A B O L I Q U E imparts a fresh perspective on the classics and many other exceptional Horror films that may be totally new to most readers… from ancient folklore and Gothic classics to contemporary film releases and modern literary gems! Additionally, D I A B O L I Q U E is printed on very high-quality heavy gloss paper, so each issue is a genuine Collector’s item!

 


Despite what many people think, the world’s best Horror movies still come from foreign countries… not the USA!Many exceptional Horror, Sci-Fi & Fantasy films have been produced and are currently being directed in many foreign countries. Sadly, many of the ones that would greatly appeal to American movie audiences go largely unnoticed by “mainstream critics” and horror films fans.

D I A B O L I Q U E is changing all that by actively pursuing relationships with authors & noted critics who specialize in Horror movies from all over the world!

 

The growing strength of the D I A B O L I Q U E brand ensures we have VIP access to many exclusive areas, procuring behind-the-scenes news or exclusive interviews with noted luminaries in the horror industry.

D I A B O L I Q U E is an internationally respected trademark and definitely not your typical “Monster Magazine.” It is aimed at educated adults with a taste for the macabre. Therefore, your ad will reach a broader, more sophisticated and loyal fan base! They are the target audience that have disposable income to buy your specific products or services.

D I A B O L I Q U E is also supported through its own website which offers readers the opportunity to fully experience the D I A B O L I Q U E brand, bringing the magazine and its visual content to life! Additionally, D I A B O L I Q U E has a consistently growing and loyal worldwide audience in social media that actively engages with the D I A B O L I Q U E brand through the most popular social platforms including Facebook and Twitter.

D I A B O L I Q U E is always printed on very high quality, heavy gloss paper, making each issue a genuine collector’s item!

Our research has unanimously concluded that printing on heavy stock instead of using very thin and cheap paper like most of the other horror magazines, is a very effective strategy since most readers literally devour each copy of D I A B O L I Q U E from cover to cover and use them as their #1 reference source for horror-related coverage!

DID YOU KNOW THAT…
95% of D I A B O L I Q U E readers collect and keep all their issues for future reference. This
means they will continue to see your ad over and over again for a very long time!

DIABOLIQUE MAGAZINE
featured in a
BARNES & NOBLES STORE DISPLAY!
This picture was taken on August 22, 2012 in Barnes & Noble.As you can see, aside from Rue Morgue (the only other Horror Genre magazine), DIABOLIQUE No. 11 was featured in a special Barnes & Noble “in-store” display just with other established “main stream” magazines such as: TIME, American Cinematographer, MAKE UP, FRANCHISE, SHARP, CINEASTE, HAWTHORNE and NEIGHBORHOODS.

 

The in-depth and well written articles and reviews, among other aspects in DIABOLIQUE, guarantee that it’s definitely not just thrown in the “MONSTER magazine” sections in retail outlets and reputable book chains that strictly appeal to a very limited audience.Our circulation is rapidly expanding with each new issue and in 2013, our goal is to be the premiere global horror genre magazine. By placing your ad in DIABOLIQUE, you are supporting our efforts in making that happen.

PURCHASE 3 OR MORE
frequency insertion Half Page, Classic Cut, Inside Back Cover Front Cover or Center Spread ads and…not only will you get your professional Press Release for FREE, but your product, company or service will
also be promoted on our popular DIABOLIQUE Webcast, and on its sister webcast, The Post-Movie Podcast!

 

Boston-based journalist Stephen “Slaughter” Head hosts the DIABOLIQUE Webcast as well as The Post-Movie Podcast, which currently gets thousands of unique downloads per month. Your product, company or service will be mentioned in both the intro and outro of one episode of each of the two podcasts. That’s 4 mentions total!Your brand will get exposure not just in the USA, but around the world! Webcasts are a very effective form of advertising as you can clearly see from these charts. We only promote one company per episode, and plug them twice during the entire program.This produces more focused results, since people have a tendency to remember more of what they hear on a webcast as opposed to social media marketing where individuals are looking at a screen and are inundated with too much information and random images!

Recent studies have now conclusively proven that most people have a tendency to forget 95% of what they see even after just a few minutes with this type of approach!

Your message gets lost among the overwhelming amount of information that constantly keeps showing up on their computer screen or cell phone and does not produce the results you anticipated!

 

Chart indicating Average Order Value by Specific Traffic Source. Social Media consistently under-performs as an effective way for generating revenue for e-commerce sites in EVERY category!

 

More facts for your consideration…
The data obtained from painstaking market research, polls and extensive studies conducted on the buying habits and patterns of people from all over the world that interact on various social media platforms scrutinized over a 4-year time period now conclusively indicates that “social media” was never as effective a way to increase sales as brick & mortar stores, merchants and e-commerce businesses were all originally led to believe!

 

Dynamic Press Releases designed by Horror Unlimited in the new visual storytelling format are definitely more effective!

 

Another fact… People will instinctively click the Facebook “like” button for your product, company or service for various reasons and you can keep posting twitter messages all day long!

Regardless, don’t become too excited and confident that all that hard work and money you are paying for somebody to keep posting these messages and pictures on your behalf is going to actually increase your “bottom line.”

It’s great to have 50,000 “likes” and of course it looks very impressive to the average social media user. However, by no means does that translate to more consistent sales or a substantial increase in generating more revenue for your company!

Our project manager will consult with you accordingly to make absolutely certain we mention your product, company or
service exactly as you want it.

Our staff is comprised of entertainment and film industry veterans, dynamically driven and dedicated to producing exceptional results for all our clients. Our main goal is to make certain you get much more than what you originally expected from your hard earned
advertising dollar!
