Product Description

In stock for immediate shipping.

The reprinted fourth issue of Classic Monsters of the Movies magazine – continuing the tradition of the great monster mags of yore!

Issue 4 includes:

  • Dracula AD 1972 – bringing Dracula into the modern age was a brave move for Hammer, and we think it’s high time this vampire romp received the closer look it deserves.
  • Horror make-up – greasepaint, animal hair and painful prosthetics are just the beginning, in our special feature on the techniques used by the make-up masters of the horror movie world.
  • Lon Chaney – the Man of the Thousand Faces was a creative powerhouse responsible for some of horror cinema’s most enduring images, and our biography examines his extraordinary legacy.
  • Young Frankenstein – Mel Brooks’ loving 1974 tribute to Universal’s golden age is worthy of respect in its own right. We rediscover the many facets of this sparkling movie.
  • Monkey business – why are there so many apes in horror movies? We peel a couple of bananas and sit back to enjoy the very best in simian scares.
  • And much more besides!

The fourth issue of Classic Monsters of the Movies is filled with articles which explore the world of vintage horror cinema in new ways. With the first-class journalism and beautiful stills you’ve come to expect, it’s the perfect way to reawaken your nostalgic memories of yesteryear, whilst discovering something new along the way.

Classic Monsters of the Movies issue 4 features superlative cover artwork by horror art legend Daniel Horne, while the articles continue our foray into the people, places, movies and – above all – the magic of classic horror. If you’ve enjoyed our previous issues, you’ll love this one… and if you haven’t read them yet, there’s no time to lose!

  1. Anthony Temple, Yorkshire, UK

    Like Famous Monsters of Filmland from the 60s only 100 times better!

  2. Dave Frankcom, Cornwall, UK

    Received my issue 4 today – fantastic! Just subscribed for issues 5 to 8 – keep up the good work. I love the mix of the US & UK horror as well as the features on all those great character actors… Keep those specials coming as well….

  3. Nick Gay, Wiltshire, UK

    Keep it up, your work is beyond sterling. Thanks for everything so far with CMoM – stunning work 🙂

  4. Bill Cavanaugh, California, US

  5. Stephen Burnip, Merseyside, UK

    Just want to say what a fantastic fabulous job you guys have done on these mags very professional indeed. Keep up the fantastic work.

    I happily now have the first four issues and all the guides. Take it from someone who always prided themselves on delivering a top-notch presentation of photos and in-depth articles over our 20 plus year run (I’m the Editor/Publisher of MONSTERS FROM THE VAULT) when I say you won’t find a better looking magazine being published today, period! I’m even envious of your use of color and the high quality paper and printing. It’s also GREAT to see the very talented Daniel Horne’s art appearing in the cover of a classic monster magazine. Daniel’s paintings were featured on the cover of eight issues of MFTV. CLASSIC MONSTERS OF THE MOVIES gets MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! This publication is a perfect replacement for FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND 3.0 (now that they’re changing direction) and MONSTERS FROM THE VAULT now that we’re ceasing publication after one final issue to be published later this year. Best of luck to all involved and I look forward to many more issues!

    FINALLY received my copy of issue #4. Long but worthwhile wait!. Great issue (again) but I really must take you task on Dracula 1972 AD. Don’t know what you were smoking as you watched/reviewed, but the movie was a dog. Great article on one of my favorite Hammers, Paranoic. Great photos and artwork

  8. Clayton

    Finally received issue #4 (worth the wait). As always the layouts and photos are greatly well done. How about covering some of the lesser known/shown classics such as Devil Girl from Mars and the Man From Planet X?
    Again, keep up the good work and don’t slow down. When will you be starting a letters from the readers section?

  9. Mark Rodgers

    The magazine just keeps getting better and better. The layout and image reproduction is first class. The great thing about this magazine is that it is filled just with brilliant articles, images and film posters and stands out from anything else on the market past or present and it would be a backward step in my opinion to include a letters from the readers section or pages of adverts. This is just a waste of space. There are plenty of social media outlets for readers to have their say without printing any of these in the magazine. You are doing just fine as you are. Please don’t change.

  10. Nathan Blanchard, Minnesota, US

    Really enjoy the magazine a lot, as well as the guides.

  11. Gary Zanow, Arizona, US

    Thank you for putting out such an amazing, and unbelievably reasonably-priced yet very high quality zine.

  12. Dale Collins, England

    I purchased issues 1-4. Brilliant magazine. I enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed reading House of Hammer which I collected in the 1970s.

  13. Mark Filippini, New Jersey, US

    I love the magazine and all the guides you guys are putting out.

  14. Joseph Buttler, California, US

    Thank you for all you do. The issues I have received are great and a very enjoyable read.

  15. Paul Freeman, Essex, UK

    Thanks so much for the Dreaming of Nightmares Guide, I also received the Ultimate Guide to Dracula last week, I really look forward to the superb writing, and beautiful presentations of these magazines and Ultimate Guides. well done to Nige Burton, and Jamie Jones, and all the other people involved in this amazing publication of Classic Monsters of the Movies.

    I look forward to receiving Dracula Prince of Darkness, and Classic Monsters, issue number 5. I ordered The Mummy last week, I am really looking forward to that as well. Thanks once again, for producing a magazine, that is of very high quality, and presented to such a high standard that the fans enjoy. I mention this magazine to lots of people, and I get overwhelmed by the quality, and enthusiasm involved by the authors.

    I can’t wait for more Classic Monsters of the Movies.

  16. Stephen Burnip, Merseyside, UK

    Hi there, just want to say these mags are class, best I’ve seen in a long time. I have them next to Dez Skinn’s House of Hammer in my collection. You should have a page for folk to leave feedback and see some great comments left no doubt. Keep up the high standards as they are fantastic.

  17. Chris Adams, Kentucky, US

    I am a subscriber to Classic Monsters magazine, and I have purchased all of your special guides to date. I absolutely LOVE your publications. The pictures, artwork, and information are all unparalleled. THANK YOU for providing us classic monsters fans with such wonderful resources. Your hard work is much appreciated by “monster kids” the world over.

  18. David Corvino, South Carolina, US

    As a charter subscriber, I must tell you how happy I am with all of your publications. I buy every issue, every book you release. My collection is growing!

    I just received issue 5 and it is fantastic. I ordered three new DVDs based on the articles in it. The format, paper, clarity, writing, photographs and content are the best anywhere. Classic Monsters has no equal!

    Thanks for keeping the high quality you began with. It is the most important thing there is.

  19. Alan Granville

    I’ve subscribe to this fantastic magazine since issue 1, I have been waiting for a horror mag like this for years and now I can look forward to my issue coming through my door, it has everything you could want great photos, stills and fantastic stories, keep up the good work and may it continue for years to come.

  20. Dana Jensen

    Classic magazine! On the same level with “Famous Monsters of Filmland” which itself was one of the classic magazines. I have never seen such great quality in a fan related magazine like “Classic Monsters”! Every page on glossy paper, with many in color! The Classic Monsters are very LUCKY to have such a great publication appreciating their greatness! LOL

  21. Eckhard Schuetze, Heidelberg, Germany

    These books are AMAZING !

  22. Steven Beai, Colorado, US

    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.

  23. Paul Murden, Lincolnshire, UK

    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.
