Fangoria issues official statement, says publication will continue in 2017


A vague and apologetic statement

Just as our piece on Fangoria possibly folding went live, the publication released an official statement about its future. Brief, vague, and apologetic, Fangoria President and Owner Tom DeFeo said the following:

I’d like to thank readers and subscribers for their patience as we deal with our internal issues. We will carry forward and devote our efforts to make amends with all that have been inconvenienced in our current state of affairs.

The statement essentially reassures readers that Fangoria will continue online throughout the year while trying to work out its long-running problems. You can read the full official statement here.

There is nothing in the statement that specifically addresses late payments to contributors or specific ways that the publication will address the concerns of its subscribers. The last print issue of Fangoria was in 2015.

I'll keep up with this story through the year since Fangoria was one of those formative magazines of my teenage movie geekdom. I don't know where I'd be without Fangoria or The Psychotronic Video Guide.
