WHAT IS FILM THREAT?

Film Threat began as a college fanzine founded by Chris Gore in Detroit in 1985. As the magazine evolved into a respected national publication, Gore relocated to Los Angeles in 1989. The magazine received national attention for its coverage of cult films, midnight movies, underground shorts before the market even emerged. Film Threat was the first mag to cover people like Quentin Tarantino (Reservoir Dogs). After over a decade of covering cult films, underground shorts, alternative films and independent features, Film Threat the magazine was retired in 1997. But the legend has lived on as an internet journalism mainstay, FilmThreat.com. In early 2010, Film Threat was acquired from founder Gore by former Editor-in-Chief Mark Bell, who re-designed, re-launched and re-focused FilmThreat.com

Continuing in the tradition set forth by the original print magazine, FilmThreat.com delivers the best in film reviews, news, film festival coverage, exclusive filmmaker interviews and filmmaking education and inspiration. From columns on marketing and distribution to online Twitter film panels to blogs about film festival adventures, FilmThreat.com is on the cutting edge of the film community, while staying as renegade as ever.
