Studio politics, the big names and – of course – so many of those movies that shaped the genre we love; there’s a wealth of information here, all accompanied with stills and poster art to bring the story to life as we head from Universal’s golden age to the new worlds of science fiction, Roger Corman’s take on Edgar Allan Poe, Hammer’s new age of gore, Amicus’ portmanteau classics, and the modern age of slashers.

    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.

    Your wonderful Classic Monsters collection is great and brings back many memories for me(I’m 64) I remember staying in the cinema all day watching the Hammer films when they showed them as a double and at one time a triple bill(Those were the days) There was one cinema that showed all the universal Frankenstein films all week then followed the next week with the Dracula films, Wolfman, and the Mummy films. Thanks to Blu Ray I can see almost all of these great films in their glory, And thanks to you all for bringing out this wonderful collection I now know everything about these films. I hope you will continue to add more films to your collection(I hope to get them all,if I can) My greatest actors are Sir Christopher Frank Carandini Lee, Boris Karloff(William Henry Pratt), Peter Wilton Cushing, Vincent Leonard Price, Jr., John Christopher Depp II(Johnny Depp), Donald Pleasence, and the great Bela Ferenc Dezso Blasko, better known as- Bela Lugosi.
