{     Ultra Violent - Issue 6     }    

The finest endeavors are always those fueled by true passion for the subject matter, and nobody is more passionate about Horror, Gore and Exploitation cinema than Ultra Violent Magazine. Starting with its earliest issue, editor/publisher Scott Gabbey has worked hard to make it something special. From tracking down and interviewing obscure horror and exploitation film auteurs to covering such specific subgenres as nunsploitation and post-apocalyptic-cannibalism, Ultra Violent has truly earned the moniker "America's Most Feared Film Magazine". Issue 6 brings the pain with several exclusive interviews, including pieces with Cannibal Holocaust director Ruggero Deodato and Asian madman Hideshi Hino (of Guinea Pig fame), and an excellent feature on the history of Something Weird Video. Also up, an interview with Don Edmonds- the director behind one of the most notorious exploitation films in history, the still-shocking Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS. Ish 6 is also chock-full of film reviews, features and a wealth of uncensored pics, images and film stills. Ultra Violent is a true labor of love, and you can feel it in every blood-soaked page. The writing strikes a nice balance between fanzine-enthusiasm and film-school-scholarship, and the articles and interviews read well whether you're a hardcore junkie of the genre or just a casual fan. The layout is clean and unpretentious, and UV manages to look and feel somewhat sophisticated despite it's graphic content and raw subject matter. It's nice to see this side of fringe cinema treated with the proper sense of respect. Issue 6 is available through UVmagazine.com for a paltry 6 bucks +shipping. It's worth the price of admission for the cover photo alone- a particularly sublime still taken from Hideshi Hino's Guinea Pig. It captures a thoughtful moment of reflection upon an act of extreme violence, a truly apt metaphor for what's going on inside every issue of Ultra Violent Magazine.
