I'm glad to see it back, haven't picked up the latest issue yet though.

...Waits for everyone to start going on about the plagiarism and all that...

Dark Side was a godsend in the early to mid 90's and opened my eyes to a whole world of film I barely knew existed. So on thatc ount, I have a certaion fondness for the mag. Sadly, I think it lost its ways and ran into the problems we're all too familiar with.

They never 'borrowed' any of my work, but an Aussie DVD label lifted my review for I Spit On Your Grave wholesale and it was on the disc in text format as an extra! I'm not really bothered, but they could have at least sent me a complimentary copy. Oh well, c'est la vie.

Before it went away there certainly were 'issues' thankfully the new re-launch title is better than it ever was and has some interesting interviews from the lies of callum waddell.

nicking other peoples work is wrong, full stop. I know there was financial difficulties involved with dark side but thats no excuse. But from the first two new issues I think allan has got the mags act together.

Just want to do my bit to get it sales, it was a major influence on me as a teenage gorehound. Now at the ripe old age of 31 i'm glad its still about!

Does this mean that the Dark Side Zombie book will be back in print? Always wished I'd got a copy of it. i've got the Cannibal one.

is it just me or has anyone noticed that the filmstrip set of photos on the left side of the Dark Side cover makes the mag look like a UK version of Fangoria?

My thoughts exactly, The Dark Side was a fantastic read back then and I used to look forward to each new issue.That was mainly due to the articles of John Martin who, together with Chas Balun, remains my favourite ever horror journalist.

I wish they had brought John Martin back for the new DS, don't really like the new DVD review section.
