Asian Cult Cinema Magazine

Issued on a bi-monthly basis, the editor is Thomas
Weisser - same author as of the Asian Trash Cinema books. I use to enjoy
this a lot more than I do now, though I still pick it up at the newsstands
when I see it. The focus seems to have become even more obsessed with Japanese
Pink films (sexually oriented films) that don't hold a lot of interest
to me. HK films are often paid scant attention and the contemporary HK
films get practically no ink. It seems to me that a magazine should cover
new films - not just the same old stuff.
You will sometimes get a good article that will
cover some subject in depth, but more often than not it is some S&M
Be careful - the back cover always displays
a scantily clad Japanese actress on it as I once discovered to some embarrassment
while reading it on a NY subway.
