A note from Joe: @displacedsmail
My father recently gifted me a copy of the Chilling Classics 50 Movies Pack, a box set of 50 B-grade and below horror movies, all made sometime between 1949 and 1990. I’ve watched all 50 movies and have written 50 short essays, all between 200 and 500 words—yep, this is one chonky zine! Altogether it clocks in at roughly 16,000 words—for reference, a book is considered a novel at 40,000. Recently boosted to half size to accommodate all of the writing, A Satanic Butchery of Boredom has been a dream project, each essay not just a movie review, but finds me diving deep into my own psyche, relating old stories, new theories, and deep, dark secrets. I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but this is a really rad zine!
