By a strange and curious turn of events, I have found myself becoming the “man in Japan” for SCREAM, a UK-based magazine that is drawing fresh blood in the world of horror publications around the world. According to the web site:
SCREAM is Britain’s premier Horror Magazine. SCREAM is your best source for horror movies, DVD and Blu-rays, reviews, previews, celebrity interviews, books, games, film festival reports, comics and pretty much everything else you can think of in the world of horror…
While the vicissitudes of my various activities have prevented me from taking up my quill and ink here at Castle Skeleton recently, I was able to take the opportunity to pen some thoughts on my participation as a zombie in a Helldriver (Yoshihiro Nishimura) DVD spinoff filmed this past summer, which you can read about in Issue 7 of SCREAM, available now at news agents and book stores across the UK, and for international order at their web site: http://www.screamhorror.com/
Not only that, I also had the opportunity to sit down and speak with Japan’s undisputed splatter queen, Eihi Shiina! We discussed her roles in Audition (Takashi Miike), Tokyo Gore Police (Yoshihiro Nishimura), and, of course, the Sushi Typhoon zombie epic Helldriver, and she also shared with me some of her activities outside of the film world and her thoughts on life and love. You can read the full interview (conducted and translated by yours truly) in next month’s issue of SCREAM. For now, check out the post here on SCREAM’s home page. You won’t want to miss it!
