Announcing a new ONGOING film fanzine… ASIAN CINEMA TAKEOUT!

asian cinema takeout cover

OK peeps…the HOUSE OF SKIN has been locked up for the season. It’s 2018 and time for a new ‘zine. This time out we are going to try an ongoing… and it’s called ASIAN CINEMA TAKEOUT. Based on the Facebook group of the same name, started by the illustrious Jesse Midnitekrawlr, the ‘zine version will be released whenever there is enough content.

ASIAN CINEMA TAKEOUT will be half sized (5.5″ x 8.5″) and consist of 20 pages each issue. The idea is to knock these out fast. First issue will be out sometime in March 2018!

Thematically, we will be covering films of all eras from the Asian film world, but only ones with a darker theme. Cult, Exploitation, Action, Horror, Smut, etc… you get the idea. While we will graciously accept long form articles/reviews, ASIAN CINEMA TAKEOUT will mostly consist of shorter, paragraph length reviews with many photos and poster art work. Whatever we cannot fit in one issue, will go on to the next. All writings can be old or new. If you have things on an old dead blog, send it, give it new life.

So contact me at: Grandnagus69@yahoo.com for any more info.

Jason Fetters:

Silmido, intense movie about the Korean Republic Army, in 1968, who forced 31 criminals and death row inmates to train to assassinate Kim Il-Sung. Very well done with a gripping finale.

ASIAN FILM MONTH April 1st-30th 2017

Well, it is going to be a theme month once again in The Magnificent World of Dave K. As I attempt to watch 365 films this year (most of which that I have never seen before), in the month of April 2017, I will be viewing only Asian films of various genres, concentrating on more sleaze and exploitation this time out. Daily, I should be doing a round up of other links and reviews that catch my eye plus the films that some of my film buddies see. It’s pretty loose this time out, just let me know if you do a review, a video or just mention a film you have seen. Now a small round of film posters I gathered…
