US letter-size weird fiction magazine printed on cheap newsprint. Publisher: Myron Fass as Tempest Publications. Editor: Myron Fass. Three issues: February, May and July 1962. Publication, nominally bimonthly, was erratic.
Thriller was not a Media Magazine as such, but is nevertheless sought after by collectors of Monster Movies magazines owing to its rarity and its connection with the Fass stable. The quality of the fiction was low with; most was Horror although a few stories bordered on sf. No notable authors appeared. Covers were somewhat inane photographs of staged scenes, presumably featuring members of the magazine's staff in assorted costumes or make-up. Some stories were reprints from Shock Tales (from which the cover of #2 was also reprinted) and Suspense Tales. [GFi/DRL]
