MONSTER BIS French fazines?
« on: 05 Dec 2009 - 12:42 »

Is anyone familiar with these French fanzines? There are some very interesting titles.
Here is the web page: http://norbert.moutier.free.fr/
Thanks in advance.

Some of the early ones go for quite big money on eBay.

I visited the shop that publishes the fanzine, it's 20 mins from my flat funny enough, and i arrived 20 mins before they closed!

A little dark ancient shop that has a smell of vintage videos! Excellent.
Full of books, mags, fanzines etc.
Near the counter are the Monster Bis fanzines, I could have went wild but since it is the festive month I couldn't afford more than 2 issues.
There were a few dvds but nothing great, but plenty of VHS - Fulci, Martino, Craven, etc. I was a tad overwhelmed by the French titles and the sheer amount so I didn't splash out on anything. he did have some Italian crime with Milian, Sabato etc... but I figured I'd get those on DVD someday.

I spoke with the owner who writes the zine and was actually a filmmaker of Z-movies:
http://uk.imdb.com/name/nm1190419/


He's worked with some names like Jean Rollin and Howard Vernon!

Very nice chap, one of the first things he mentioned was the passing away of Mr. Werewolf Paul Naschy. We spoke a little about Jean Rollin (his friend) and sadly said that he is ill at the moment with heart problems as well as his liver that troubled him a few years ago...

Anyway, I was very pleased to get these (if somewhat expensive at €15 each), he even tossed in another publication for free. I will be going again next year to get a couple more.


There's a third Italian Crime edition but it's sold out.

I love visiting shops like this, very easy to spend money!

When I went to Profondo Rosso I spent more than 100€ in 20 mins! I would have went even wilder if my missus wasn't with me.

Popped in to the shop after work this evening.

Grabbed the 3rd issue of Italian Crime and the issue on Umberto Lenzi. He said he may reprint the Bruno Mattei issue, excellent!

Just wondered if anyone here's in touch with this chap, as I've emailed him a couple of times about the Margaret Lee fanzine he has, but I haven't heard anything back... I need my Margaret Lee fix, dammit!  8)

You need to see her in the opening scenes of UN ATTIMO DI VITA.
