Do the names Fred Olen Ray, Ted V. Mikels, or Andy Milligan mean anything to you? Do you remember the good old days when choosing a videotape to rent was easy, since all you had to do was look for the 'Banned in Queensland' sticker? Are you more likely to be drawn to movies with labels that warn of "High level violence, language, sex scenes, and nudity"? If you answered YES to any of the above then have I got a zine for you! It's called Sprak! and here's the latest issue. Kami's got a cool and kicked-back reviewing style, and never an issue goes by without me noting a bunch of these 'rough diamonds' to track down.
