Space Monsters 3 is out now and it's a good 'un. The brainchild of editor, Richard Gladman, Space Monsters, just to make the point obvious, is designed to celebrate monsters from outer space (or with a definite sci-fi slant!) Hence, issue 3 focuses on Frankenstein on film, with a strong Hammer contingent.

In this month's issue of Digital Film Maker Magazine, I talk to Robert Nevitt, director and programmer of Sheffield's Celluloid Screams. Now in its fifth year, and going from strength to strength, Rob talks us through the festival's history, from how he set it up initially as a one-off special event, to his building it as a major annual UK horror fest.
I had the pleasure of attending this year's Celluloid Screams and had a blast. You can read about my adventures here.
Digital Film Maker is available at all WH Smiths. You can order it direct from the publisher here. Or in its digital version here.
