What Was Said…

“Although slightly offbase in his belief that noone else is actively covering pre-50’s horror, Kip-Xool’s enthusiasm for the dustier archive material does seperate The Missing Link from the fold slightly and anyone intrigued by the genre’s roots would be well advised to check-it-out, not least for the terrific stills and admats he has unearthed.”…Darkside

“If as a consumer, one was limited solely to buying film magazines from W.H. Smith, or any other high street newsagent, one could be forgiven for thinking there was only one type of film magazine available, the current release review publication, slick, inane with minimum interest in film history, essentially, additional advertising for the American film industry. So it is with great pleasure to be able to give some exposure to The Missing Link, a magazine devoted to vintage horror cinema.
Here is a true cinephiles publication. The first issue is priced at £1 and includes in its 25 pages an in-depth review section of some real obscurities such as Chandu the Magician (1932) and The Ghost of Rashmon Hall (1947), and a valuable film biography of Ernest Thesiger. I was particularly taken by the A to Z Listing of obscure and neglected Horror and Fantasy films up to 1950. Enthusiasts of vintage horror need look no further than this publication to satisfy their morbid tastes.”
