Magazine Speculation Spotlight on Femme Fatales

Space
Femme Fatales magazine was launched in 1992 as a “mens magazine” by Frederick S. Clarke. The purpose of Femme Fatales was to compliment Clarkes magazine library that included cinefantastique magazine. The magazine focused on science fiction and horror B list actresses publishing nude and non-nude pinups – many taken from various movie stills. Like Cinefantastique the articles would touch on media from all ages and not just on “new” films. The last issue of Femme Fatales came out in November of 2008.

In 2011 the magazine was used as the basis for the HBO / Cinemax series Femme Fattales. This TV series ran for two seasons.
