In 1983 an influential book appeared – influential at least in some circles. The title being THE PSYCHOTRONIC ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FILM, it largely consisted of reviews of films in genres not usually taken seriously by critics.

Actually, it was originally a magazine – well, sort if – and since then faneds have bombarded each other with Xeroxed rags expressing their opinion on movies that usually no one else has ever heard about. I suppose it’s really a disease, and unfortunately a contagious one.

You usually start out by reading this stuff, but pretty soon you’re writing it yourself. After a period of incubation, I am now ready to unleash my own film magazine – if you can call it that – upon an unsuspecting world, the idea, of course, being mainly to bring unknown/forgotten masterpieces to the attention of the reader.

Apart from the reviews, he will find articles on horror films, pornography, Tex Avery, and Laurel & Hardy. It’s no big deal, but if you definitely, absolutely gotta have it, you can get it in FANTASK, or by sending DKR. 50,- to

It’s 64 pages (A5) Xeroxed with largely indecipherable illustrations, and it’s in (a leetle broken) English. So don’t say we didn’t warn you!
