About this project

Gore Noir Magazine is a quarterly (eventually monthly) print magazine that sprung from the imagination of a horror fan aimed at creating new horror fans. We here at GN magazine are not some corporate entity looking to leach off of the horror culture.  We are looking to make horror more vibrant and show people all the awesome work that is coming out of artists, tattooists, models, musicians, etc.  Our overall goal is to create new horror content for you to feast your eyes on, not to "review" movies that all the other magazines are already reviewing.. THAT'S BORING!  I'd much rather see a celebrity I didn't know was a horror fan in a nice refreshing horror shoot with an interview to go along with it than I would like to see another horror movie review.  

As we gain more exposure and our budget increases we will be able to expand and show people that horror isn't just for fan boys.  It's a normal human impulse and we aren't a bunch of crazy looking satanists.  We are artists looking to explore what it means to be human.

Why a print magazine?

While we plan to launch a digital download version of our magazines soon, print magazines are our lifeblood.  You can bring it with you where ever you go and it won't vanish if your hard drive crashes.  You can put it out on your coffee table for others to enjoy. You can tear the pages out and frame your favorite images.  It's just more tactile than anything else.

When are you launching?

We've already launched our first issue and it's available on www.gorenoir.com.  With print magazines the cost of printing and the amount of issues it takes to get distribution is high.  Our first issue was self funded with help from friends and was not distributed.  We have a distribution company interested we just need the money to produce the amount of copies necessary.

Why should I fund you?

Gore Noir Magazine would like to be available at newstands, book stores, and convenience stores around the world.  In order to bring people a high quality product we need funding to cover the costs of making such a product.

What will you do with the $6,000?  

While we hope that the funding will go above $6,000 dollars the goal of $6k will cover our printing costs to produce the minimum amount of magazines it takes to get our issues into distribution. Along with distribution we'd like to advertise our magazine which realistically would cost quite a bit if it weren't for the availability of easy advertising on the internet and through word of mouth from our growing fan base who is excited to see where our magazine will go.

Should I keep funding you after you meet your goal?

Of course!  While $6,000 is the minimum amount we need to get our magazine out there, it's going to take more than that to get the kind of exposure we really need to make Gore Noir a success!  We all want to succeed and be a part of something that becomes great.  This is your chance to possibly be at that first Rolling Stones or Jimi Hendrix gig and to be able to say "I was part of making that magazine what it is today!"
