Beneficial Shock! No.1

Beneficial Shock! No.1


Beneficial Shock! Is an independently run biannual film magazine unlike any other. It takes a humorous and irreverent look at movies through the creative lens of a motley crew of talented illustrators, designers and writers. Each thematic issue looks to challenge established modes of publishing by extending the editorial experience to the screen—becoming as much a magazine to watch as to read.

With contributions from established illustrators, designers and writers alongside fresh new talent, issue 1 features work by Jay Wright, Dave Biskup, Eleanor Shakespeare, Gary Embury and Jakob Hinrichs lending their penmanship to features on surreal food in Roald Dahl films, food fights from east European art-house cinema and a theoretical treatise on the digestive process of Hitchcock's Psycho. Alongside these more meaty features are a bevvy of graphic novels, mock adverts and an abridged history of cinema's most humble snack: popcorn.

Beneficial Shock!, 2017, 200 × 280mm, 64 pages, English.
