The debut issue of ''Banned in Britain'' (BiB) was published at the very end of the original splatter movie era. It is maybe the only still surviving splatter film fanzine from that time period. The late 1980s and early-to-mid 1990s saw literally tons of fanzines that covered both new and hard to find horror and splatter movies. Many of them came from the UK where the goriest of these films were either censored or right out banned. Editor Jack J discovered horror and splatter movies during a three year stint in London, England (1988-90) where he frequented many an all-nighter at the legendary (now long gone) ''Scala Cinema Club''. After having returned to Scandinavia he decided to publish his own gore movie fanzine in the vein of UK zines like ''In the Flesh'' and ''Grim Humour''. Due to his laziness he has so far (2013) only managed to publish one issue per decade.

BiB issue #1 was published in 1994. The debut issue was Xeroxed late one night at a female film friend's workplace. The friend was credited as co-editor due to photocopying the first run but didn't do any actual work on the zine otherwise. Most of the reviews were written by Jack J. A handful of reviews were submitted by ''Simon Nielsen'', co-editor of the punk & garage-rock fanzine ''Moshable'' (1987-2001).

Banned in Britain is an English language horror and splatter movie zine from Denmark (Scandinavia) published by Jack J.

Issues published:

  1. (A5, 32pp, 1994)
  2. (A5, 32pp, 2004)


The debut issue of Banned in Britain (BiB) was published at the very end of the original splatter movie era. It is maybe the only still surviving splatter film fanzine from that time period. The late 1980s and early-to-mid 1990s saw literally tons of fanzines that covered both new and hard to find horror and splatter movies. Many of them came from the UK where the goriest of these films were either censored or right out banned. Editor Jack J discovered horror and splatter movies during a three year stint in London, England (1988-90) where he frequented many an all-nighter at the legendary (now long gone) Scala Cinema Club. After having returned to Scandinavia he decided to publish his own gore movie fanzine in the vein of UK zines like In the Flesh and Grim Humour. Due to his laziness he has so far (2013) only managed to publish one issue per decade.

BiB issue #1 was published in 1994. The debut issue was Xeroxed late one night at a female film friend's workplace. The friend was credited as co-editor due to photocopying the first run but didn't do any actual work on the zine otherwise. Most of the reviews were written by Jack J. A handful of reviews were submitted by Simon Nielsen, co-editor of the punk & garage-rock fanzine Moshable (1987-2001).

There is a 10 year gab between issue #1 and 2. Number 2 was published in 2004. Again most of the contents were written by Jack J with submissions by one other writer, this time comic book artist Lars Kramhøft. Both issues had a print run of approx 150 copies. Approx 50 copies of the cover for #1 were printed in red & white. All other copies were black & white. Both issues are long out of print but have been made available in free online editions by fans (approved by the publisher).

Jack J's zine publications are published on his It's Grim Up North publishing bedroom publishing company. The zines are 100% D.I.Y. publications and Jack J has maintained a "No copyrights reserved" policy throughout the zine's existence. Anybody is allowed to print up copies as long as no profit is made.

Jack J went on to publish the Danish language fanzine Stay Sick! (1999-). The most recent issue is #4 from 2003.
