As a guy who has his head buried in the 80s I probably spend an inordinate amount of time collecting old back issues of magazines like Cinemafantastique, Fangoria and Starlog.  I have a pretty extensive collection actually and love any excuse to go spelunking through the stacks looking for articles.  Since we decided to cover

featured

We’re back with a brand spanking new episode of the Cult Film Club this week, where we collectively crap our pants over the awesomness that is Walter Hill’s “rock & roll fable” from 1984, STREETS OF FIRE!
