The concept of the werewolf is a familiar one to movie fans. The moonlit transformation, the deep fear of the monster within… these elements have been told and retold myriad times. Classic Monsters are proud to present the Book of the Werewolf Signed Hardback, an examination of the development of the werewolf horror genre. Produced in rich full colour, this premium hardcover title is packed with stills, posters and information to immerse you in the world of cinematic lycanthropy.
From the earliest entries in the genre during the age of silents, through the golden age’s many differing approaches and up to the groundbreaking artistry of the early 1980s, the Book of the Werewolf hardback looks at the classic horror movies which shaped our understanding of movie werewolves. As well as beloved favourites like WereWolf of London (1935), The Wolf Man (1941) and The Curse of the Werewolf (1961), we reveal the differing ways in which these hirsute horrors have crept into our nightmares, the mythologies that have driven them, and the reasons they remain so cherished by monster kids around the world.
REMEMBER – THERE ARE ONLY 30 COPIES OF THIS TITLE IN THE WHOLE WORLD!
From towering wolf-giant Petro in The Mad Monster (1942) to the Euro-monsters of Werewolf in a Girls’ Dormitory (1961) and Paul Naschy’s many contributions to the genre, you’ll get a fresh angle on the myriad incarnations of a monster you might not know as well as you think. As one of cinema’s most popular monsters, the werewolf has undergone its fair share of evolutions over the decades.
Like all Classic Monsters titles, the Book of the Werewolf Signed Hardback is designed, written and produced to the highest standard, a new type of werewolf movie guide that will leave you dreading the full moon all over again.
