Killbaby #2

Killbaby was a really cool ‘zine that focused on horror/ gore/ exploitation flicks, but also had some music content (mostly old school (’70s) punk).  The layout was very appealing- more interesting than most ‘zines done on a computer with a desktop publishing program (they usually tended to be kind of blah), and included a bit of art and humor thrown in randomly as well.

Issue #2 came out Sept of 1989, and featured an interview with Charles Pinion (who did a skate/ splatter movie back then called Twisted Issues), and Donald Farmer (who did several low budget movies including Cannibal Hookers), an Udo Kier biography/ filmography (including reviews of most of the films on the list), an article on Salo: The 120 Days of Sodom, as well as one on a couple of blaxploitation movies, letters, ‘zine and music reviews, and a bunch of long, informative movie reviews including a lot of obscure and hard to find movies.  The writing is good and informative without being pretentious or too scholarly sounding, and this is a nice little ‘zine.  A fun and informative read…

One thought on “Killbaby #2

  1. Hi,
    I’m in the middle of reading thru “Xerox Ferox” (awesome book on fanzines from 2013) and wanted to see if some of the mags (the ones that I never found back in the day) were available for download anywhere in Cyberspace. And so I found your blog, lol. Thanks heaps for the many scans of zines!!!!! But my question is: why only parts of the zines? Would you consider scanning and posting the complete zines? Unfortunately, these things are almost impossible to find after 20-30 years, and the few on eBay are EXPENSIVE!
