A Pictorial History of Universal Monsters Volume One: The Twenties and Thirties

The horror movies produced by Universal during the 1920s and 30s were crucial in shaping our understanding of what a horror movie could be. They created the environment in which artists such as Lon Chaney, Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff could flourish, and became a turning point in the development of the modern motion picture.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    WOW!! A huge Universal Monsters Vol 1 came through the letterbox. Clearly very busy once again much to the delight of horror movie addicts such as myself. In an age of CGI it’s good to be reminded of John P. Fulton, which you do. As ever an informative text and you never fail to surprise an old hand like me with ‘new’ photos when you thought you had seen them all. It’s such a pity that Laemmle Jr seemed to spend the latter half of his life as a lonely recluse passing away in obscurity. It’s magazines such as you produce that really does keep the memory alive.
