That is not dead which can eternal lie
And in strange Aeons, even death may die.

After a long hiatus, Chud will return to life very shortly.
It will be helmed by Stephen Dare who will serve as the editor in chief, Virginia Mills as managing editor and will be aided by founding publisher/editor Nick Nunziata in an as yet unannounced capacity. Longtime celebrity journalist and clothing designer/horror film industry insider, Jimmy Star will also bring untold backstage access to productions around the world.
The reborn version will be a compendemonious look at horror. Horror in literature, film, video, anime, art, graphic novels, music and (importantly) science.
Along with many old favorite features, the publication will still cover developing projects, news, and speculation.
But it will be expanding to video, 360 components, a much larger selection of podcasts In addition to the gallows humor and tongue in cheek tone, there will be a new emphasis tying together alarming and compelling news from the realms of science to the subject matter of the featured horror content. Readers will be advised to always check the story to see if we are bringing you news of the fictional or the real things happening in a world gone mad with technology.
It will also be featuring original fiction and collaborative story projects as part of its main content. So get your submissions ready for a cheerless editor and a gleaming blade of edit. We plan on making the rivers run red with correction notes and good old fashioned story direction.
Chud was established in the late 90s, and brings with it over 21 years of content, discussion, tradition and input from two generations of horror fans. We will be honoring many (but not all) of those traditions. And making some new ones as well. The world has changed in 20 years and so has the Horror genre.
We look forward to electrocuting the shit out of this monster on a looming dark and stormy night. We hope you join us in riding the lightning back to a strange new life.
