Shriek

Tagged: Publication

Letter-size saddle-stapled Cinema magazine. Publisher: Acme News Company Incorporated. Editor credited as "Frank N Stein". Four issues, May 1965 to Winter 1967. Publication was nominally quarterly, but in fact erratic.

This was a venture by magazine distributor Acme News into the Movie Monster magazine field; though short-lived it was of good quality, with well-written articles and interviews. The focus was almost entirely on such then-current films as Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150 A.D. (1966) and War Gods of the Deep (1965). Interviews with Boris Karloff and Vincent Price also appeared. The magazine seems to have been unable to obtain adequate distribution, and failed to establish itself. Cover artists were uncredited. [GSt/DRL]
