HORROR GARAGE combines the best in original dark fiction with the finest in horrific rock n' roll. Think HORROR OF PARTY BEACH, PSYCHOMANIA, and DEATH RACE 2000: B-movie babes, screamin skulls, bug-eyed creeps, and gallons of blood.

The web version of HORROR GARAGE expands on the print magazine's original theme. There is still uber-cool dark fiction (be SURE to check the latest guidelines!), along with features on authors and bands. We've added things like GARAGE GRRL galleries and made the HORROR GARAGE Facebook page accessible. The online store area includes books, music, videos and t-shirts.
