LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

R emember going to one of those art theatres in the dead of night to catch films such as "El Topo", "Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "Carnival of Souls", "Freaks", or some Herschel Gordon Lewis film festival? (We're not even mentioning the obvious example here--sorry Frankenfurter fans.) Well, the studios are going after the Midnight Movie market with a vengence and you can get the story here.

Don't miss the interview with Chris Eyre, the Cheyenne/Arapaho film maker on his new film, "Smoke Signals". The film got raves at Sundance and you can get Eyre's story here--not to mention a review of the movie.

Did someone mention reviews? We've got a bunch including everything you ever (thought) you needed to know about the mega- ganga- monstro- giganto summer blockbuster, "Armageddon." Check out the pieces on "Men With Guns," "Cousin Bette," "High Art," and more.
