It should be no surprise that Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor is a fan of horror and sci-fi, but he's such a fan he's bought the rights to classic magazine Famous Monsters of Filmland and will relaunch the brand. He made the announcement on Friday (10/14) at the Son of Monsterpalooza convention in Burbank, CA.
Launched in 1958 by James Warren and editor Forrest J Ackerman, Famous Monsters of Filmland ran through 1983. “It was the first real place where we, as horror nerds, could feel safe and feel connected, feel like we weren’t alone,” Taylor told Rolling Stone. “The internet has made it easy for us to connect, so I want to kind of make this another viable place for them to come.”
