Larry Flynt Publications
During the early 1990s, Film Threat was transformed as Gore attempted to find a more mainstream release for the magazine, while its new offshoot Film Threat Video Guide, edited by Williams, continued to focus on the underground films and filmmakers that the magazine had featured in its early days. Film Threat would eventually find a new home with Larry Flynt Publications, relaunching in November, 1991 as Volume 2, Issue 1. "I darted to the newsstand to grab the first glossy edition of what promised to be the turning of the tide for 'Let’s-Blow-and-Stroke-the-Interviewee' type film journalism. And whose face did I see? Macaulay Culkin’s," stated filmmaker Kevin Smith of the first issue of Film Threat’s new edition.
In 1993, the magazine—then published bi-monthly—had a circulation of 125,000, and was competing with such titles as Premiere. Paul Zimmerman became executive editor in 1994, and the magazine continued to grow, but Film Threat's tenure with Larry Flynt Publications ended after 28 issues in June 1996.
Gore managed to buy back the rights from LFP, and launched the magazine, for a third time, in December 1996. He would print only two issues, however, before retiring the magazine in 1997.
