The full-colour pages of this high-quality glossy publication are packed with crystal-clear stills and posters, as well as compelling articles exploring the world of horror movie history in the playful yet reverential style that you won’t find anywhere else.
Whether you’re an original monster kid, or a new recruit to the world of classic horror movie magazines, you’re sure to enjoy what Classic Monsters of the Movies magazine has to offer. This issue ranges from well-known movies such as Universal’s 1931 Frankenstein, to Barbara Shelley’s performances in the world of Hammer Horror and legendary 1972 movie The Abominable Dr Phibes.
Everything is wrapped up in a stunning high-gloss cover, with breathtaking artwork by Daniel R Horne. No fan of horror film magazines should be without a copy, and monster kids of a certain age will be immediately transported back in time to those halcyon days of their monster-collecting youth.
Issue 8 includes:
- Frankenstein – the 1931 Universal classic has been discussed countless times, and its contribution to horror culture is immeasurable, and has informed the conception of the Monster in the popular consciousness. We explore the powerful impact of the film on early 1930s audiences and its relevance today, as well as Boris Karloff’s timeless performance.
- Anatomy of a Monster – when Mary Shelley devised the story of Frankenstein, she gave generations of filmmakers, artists and writers one of the most compelling characters of all time. This special feature to back up our cover story examines the various incarnations of her immortal creature.
- Vampires in Film – new contributor Bruce G Hallenbeck takes a definitive look at vampire cinema from the silents right up to the 1940s, and examines the evolution of the bloodsucking fiends that seduce us time and time again.
- Barbara Shelley – Hammer Glamour was never more dignified than in the hands of this cool, calm and collected heroine. Our in-depth biography delves deep into her extraordinary career and legacy.
- The Abominable Dr Phibes – it’s kitsch, it’s camp and outrageous in its Art Deco extravagance. Pushing the boundaries of humour and horror in equal measure, Vincent Price’s luscious performance of absurd revenge comes under the microscope.
- Ed Wood – Tim Burton’s 1994 biopic has long been revered by both critics and fans alike. Telling the story of one of Hollywood’s most lovably notorious filmmakers, it features top-notch performances from an all-star cast. Here, we look at what makes this retelling of history so irresistible.
- And so much more too!
