The magazine originally started as a [[Mimeograph machine|mimeograph]]ed [[fanzine]] in 1967, then relaunched as a glossy, [[offset printing|offset printed]] quarterly in 1970 by [[publisher]]/[[editing|editor]] [[Frederick S.

</ref> Intended as a serious critical/review journal of the [[genre]]s, the magazine immediately set itself apart from such competitors as ''[[Famous Monsters of Filmland]]'' and ''[[The Monster Times]]'' due to its slick paper stock and use of full color interior film stills. ''Cinefantastique'''s articles and reviews emphasized an intelligent, near-scholarly approach, a then-unusual slant for such a genre-specific magazine. Advertisements were few, with most of them being only ads for other titles and materials by the publisher. This lack of "page padding" assured the reader a high proportion of original editorial content.
