Classic Monsters of the Movies issue 14 brings you more of your favourite classic cinema chills, presented as only we know how. This issue’s cover feature celebrates Bela Lugosi’s many portrayals of Dracula, from his stage career through to the 1931 Universal classic and beyond – and, of course, the many vampire roles which were oh-so-close to the role that defined his image. As with all our articles, this feature is packed with stills that bring Lugosi’s career as Hollywood’s leading vampire to life.
Fans of Lugosi are, therefore, in for a treat, but there’s plenty of other exciting stuff in issue 14 of Classic Monsters of the Movies too. We dip our toes into the weird world of water-borne monsters and examine the aquatic critters of all shapes and sizes that have kept us on dry land over the years. Meanwhile, our biography of George Zucco explores his status as one of horror’s most beloved character support stars. Whether as a Mummy-raising evildoer, a mad scientist or a sideshow owner, he never failed to raise a smile and a chill.
If Vincent Price is your preferred purveyor of the macabre, then Classic Monsters of the Movies issue 14 is definitely for you, as we take a fresh look at 1964’s eerie The Masque of the Red Death. With a touch of Edgar Allan Poe and the kind of gothic brilliance that Roger Corman does so well, this movie always merits another viewing, so join us for a trip back to medieval Italy. Other articles include an appraisal of 1957 Lon Chaney biopic Man of a Thousand Faces – a chance to examine James Cagney’s portrayal of the iconic horror star and the liberties Hollywood takes with reality for the sake of drama.
Classic Monsters of the Movies issue 14 is another must-have addition to your monster magazine collection, with beautiful stills and insightful articles bringing your favourite horror movies to life. World-class journalism immerses you in the motion pictures which we love so much, offering a fresh approach to the genre. Wrapped up in clean, timeless design and stunning production values, Classic Monsters of the Movies is a horror magazine you can’t possibly afford to be without.
Issue 14 includes:
- Lugosi’s Dracula – his portrayal of Stoker’s vampire in Universal’s 1931 movie has become the popular face of Dracula, but Bela Lugosi made many other contributions to the way we imagine bloodsuckers.
- Monsters from the Deep – there’s something particularly threatening about water-based monsters, so it’s time to meet hydrated horrors ranging from the golden age through stop-motion and into the world of science fiction.
- George Zucco – his unmistakable voice and knowing villainy made him the pantomime baddie of classic horror, but who was the man behind all those unforgettable roles? Our biography explores the life of the man behind the movie malice.
- The Masque of the Red Death – Vincent Price presides over a castle full of terrible deeds in AIP’s gloriously grotesque spectacle. The dance is about to begin – make sure you’re ready, this is a party you’ll never forget!
- Invasion of the Saucer Men – this issue’s Kitsch Corner takes a journey to the heart of sci-fi Americana with some of the most extraordinary aliens you’ve ever seen.

I have been a subscriber for almost two years — it is the same thrill when the newest issue arrives as it was when I bought a new issue of FM of Filmland.
Stephen Williams, Dorset, UK –
I did enjoy CMoM #14 very much. Good to see it’s attracting writers like Bruce Hallenbeck.
Steve Brown, Hertfordshire, UK –
Just finished the latest issue and just wanted to say how much I always enjoy this magazine (it’s the only publication I’ve ever subscribed to)
Also, thank you for doing a feature on George Zucco. Such a memorable, important and overlooked actor.

I’m absolutely thrilled to see CLASSIC MONSTERS going bi-monthly and I just can’t say enough about the quality of every single item produced, from the mags to the film books, sticker sets and beyond. Not to mention the care taken with shipping every product — and did I mention how grateful I am for the stellar customer service you provide — from the regular updates to the personal replies to inquiries.
As a fan and collector of all things classic monsters for over 40 years, I am fortunate enough to have one of the largest collections of monster magazines dating back to the ultra-rare UK one-shot of SCREEN THRILLS, as well as complete runs of every Warren magazine (Famous Monsters, Eerie, Creepy, Vampirella, etc.), I can say with absolute authority there is nothing like CLASSIC MONSTERS OF THE MOVIES here in the States…nothing that comes remotely close.

You guys do a fantastic job, and my only regret is that you weren’t around when I first got into classic horror films all those years ago! Keep up the great work.
