The Gore Score - Fantaco Books 1985




Painter and illustrator who writes Chas. Balun is the editor/publisher of the legendary horror magazine Deep Red. The first one to talk about horror films as serious things. Before him, Horror films always seemed to be looked down on as a bastard child of real cinema.
The Gore Score offers thumb nail reviews of horror films released in the 80's. Chas. has devised two rating systems. He assesses the relative merits of each film by assigning from one to four skulls; a little dog is reserved for the irredeemable bow-wows.
