As many of you have no doubt noticed, the site has had a bit of a make-over. Over the weekend, the site has been updated with a brand new skin, which includes an incredible image by photographer Rob Fenn (who shot the Zombie Horror Picture Show photo book) and includes original artwork by Rob Zombie’s web manager Emma (1976designs)
As well as a new skin, we have taken the time to tidy up the individual movie and music pages, as well as streamline a few underused sections.
There are still a few bits to drop into the site over the next few days, but we are hoping this is a look everyone will like and enjoy.
