A 29 minute interview with Richard Klemensen, publisher of Little Shoppe of Horrors: The Journal of Classic British Horror Films, on the 40th anniversary of the magazine's debut. Read the full description.

Lsoh-29_small Since 1972, Richard Klemensen has published a magazine devoted to the renaissance of British horror films of the mid-1950s through the early 1970s - Little Shoppe of Horrors: The Journal of Classic British Horror Films.  It is widely regarded among horror film enthusiasts and historians as the most in-depth source on the production of these films and of the British film studios which created them, primarily the Hammer Film company.

The latest issue covers the making of the cult classic film The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971, starring Vincent Price) and its subsequent history.  Although financed by American International Pictures, the film was produced in England by a veteran British film crew, several of whom also worked on major British television series such as The Avengers .

In this 29 minute interview, Bob Meyer talks to Klemensen about the history of the magazine, its latest issue, the fading of print publications in the digital age, the British film industry, and the Phibes films.
