Diabolique Magazine No. 17 (Aug/Sep 2013)

CoverIssue17a620

In the same way the intersection between horror and rock n’roll explored in our 15th issue is much like a Reese’s peanut butter cup, so are horror and comedy – two great tastes that go great together. In that spirit, Diabolique # 17 tickles your funny bone and cracks it too, exploring all that’s irreverent, wonky and weird from the horror community’s most alternately playful and sadistic minds. We’ll walk you through horror-comedy hybrids new and old, featuring exclusive interviews with Ben Wheatley, Adam Wingard, Joe Dante and more, while delving into the inner workings of extreme and erotic cinema with a tribute to the late, great exploitation helmer Jess Franco. Diabolique 17: you’re all gonna die laughing!
