Really been enjoying the recent compendium of the first six issues of Michael Helm's seminal trash film culture zine Fatal Visions, a great time capsule of what was happening in underground and exploitation cinema, video and television in Melbourne at the time (1988/89). Along with Crimson Celluloid and Betty Paginated, Fatal Visions was one of the few Australian fanzines that was required reading for me in the 90s, and I was fortunate enough to have some of my earliest writing pieces published in later issues. Was a sad day when it's run finally came to an end, let's hope Michael gets to eventually collect the entire run of the magazine in future volumes.
