Read from the Book

It's been a long time coming, but it is with great pleasure that I invite you to peruse, and hopefully enjoy, this "resurrection edition” of Flesh And Blood, the cult movie journal that gave birth to FAB Press itself, way back in 1993. Flesh And Blood Issue 1 was handed out to strangers queueing, on a cold February day, to get in to an all-night horror event at the Scala cinema in Kings Cross, London. The modest 20-page photocopied fanzine was a labour of love I had put together over the preceding couple of months; my attempt to give something back to the small but vibrant horror film fan scene that had sprung up in reaction to the UK's heavy-handed censorship of video tapes in the 1980s, and had gone on to thrive as the 1990s dawned and the power of the BBFC held sway. On a purely personal level it was inconceivable at the time that I would be here, a full 18 years later, typing this editorial, but in retrospect what is of more wide-reaching interest is to consider how, in some ways the whole cult movie fan scene is so very different nowadays, but also how much of it has remained remarkably familiar. The sheer accessibility of cult movies is the most striking change of all; whereas in 1993 we had to either wait for cinematic temples such as the Scala to put those elusive classics up on the silver screen, or resort to third-generation VHS copies traded like drugs via a semi-criminal underground network, now it's all out there, digitally remastered. There's literally nothing a curious film fan cannot see these days without a little (minuscule, actually) degree of patience. If you did not experience those heady yet frustrating days you quite frankly have no idea at all how much of a buzz it was to finally see a long-lost wish-list inhabitant such as Last House on Dead End Street, or any number of Jess Franco obscurities, come to think of it... Technology has changed everything... FAB 1 was put together by a combination of an Amiga 500, scissors, glue, and a photocopier. E-mail was pretty much confined to the military and big business at that time, movies fanzines were traded by mail... but the movies themselves... well, let's put it this way: The Evil Dead, Suspiria and The Thing still mean precisely the same thing to cult movie fans everywhere.So, with FAB Press now an 'adult' entity, having notched up 18 dramatic, unpredictable years, I can only guess at the adventures awaiting the next generation of cult movie fans, a further 18 years from now...
