As far as we know, there hasn't ever really been a film critic featured so prominently on the cover of Fangoria, but then again, there's no other film critics quite like the legendary Joe Bob Briggs!
The magazine was detailed this week by Entertainment Weekly.
The decision to put the spotlight on Briggs — and surround him with zombies — is a timely one by Fango editor-in-chief Phil Nobile Jr.
“The cover (shot by horror photographer Joshua Hoffine) came together quickly when another cover fell through, and we are eternally grateful to Joe Bob Briggs for being such a great sport,” Nobile told the site “As an homage to Fango editor Bob Martin and issue 43 from 1985, that’s me in the upper right as one of the zombies.”
The new issue of Fangoria will also feature articles on the Soska sisters‘ remake of David Cronenberg‘s Rabid and A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 star Mark Patton. Contributors include special effects legend Tom Savini and the Last Podcast on the Left.
