The first issue of my horror-mystery-fantasy film magazine, LATARNIA FANTASTIQUE INTERNATIONAL, is out now, with three features of interest to Spanish horror fans. The first is a premier review of Paul Naschy last outing as a werewolf--Ivan Cardoso's WEREWOLF IN THE AMAZON; the second is a lengthy interview with actor Andres Resino, in which he discusses his career and working on such films as WEREWOLF SHADOW, JACK THE RIPPER OF LONDON, MURDER MANSION and Jess Franco's DEVIL'S ISLAND LOVERS; and, last but not least, a translation of Gustavo Adolfo Becquer's "El monte de las animas"--"Spirit Mountain"--the inspiration for Amando de Ossorio's Blind Dead series.

El Conde Dracula Resin Kit

It's being auctioned on eBay at a start bid of $499--an unreleased prototype resin kit of Christopher Lee as Count Dracula from the Jess Franco film. Fine work, and the perfect gift for a Franco or Chris Lee fan from a well-to-do friend.
