    Can’t recommend this magazine/book highly enough. It’s a beautifully produced, well written, informative and nicely illustrated publication. Hope there will be many more!
    A must-buy!

    I have both the Dracula and Frankenstein Ultimate Guides. These were both great reads. You’ll watch these movies in a different light once you read these.

    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.

    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.

    I have recently received my orders & have been unable to put them down. These are the highest quality monster fan mags I have ever seen.

    Many thanks for your efforts to document these classic movies & the talent that made it all possible, from the actors & behind the camera crew to your staff & their excellent treatment of the subject matter.

    Excellent products.

  11. Steve Balloch, US

    Just received my copy of Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein.
    Both make for interesting reading. Lots of neat pictures, stories and trivia.
    You do such a great job of putting out an excellent Monster Magazine.
    Keep up the good work.
