Introducing the revamped Film Stories magazine: now with 168 pages, our biggest issue by far - and the UK's biggest film magazine!
Printed on quality paper too, the new issue's allowed us to heavily expand what we cover, from the latest releases through to film music, physical media through to horror, big interviews through to retrospective features. Plus! Lots of new columns and regular features.
