classic horror magazines

Classic horror Magazines then and now

When one thinks of classic horror magazines Famous Monsters of Filmland is of course the first to come to mind but there have been so many others that have made a great contribution to the classic horror genre. Monster World was short lived but was right there along with FM, so was Monster Madness aka. Monsters Unlimited which took great classic horror stills and added in comical dialogue to the scene. We also had Creepy, Eerie, Vampirella, Castle of Frankenstein, Monsters Unleashed, Monsters of the Movies, Monster Parade, Monster Bash and that's just name a few. More recently there has been Fangoria, Scary Monsters, Monsters of the Vault and they just keep coming.

You just can't help but love all of these and want to own each and every one. With the help of Ebay you can make a good attempt at it but that just won't happen no matter how much you invest your time and money into it.

One of the best parts of these magazines is seeing and hearing a lot of the behind the scenes stuff that normally would not be accessible to your average classic horror fan. We are so used to seeing these monsters doing the normal menacing and such that when you get the opportunity to see them smoking a cigarette or playing cards at lunch is really a treat.

Of course the advertisements always offer many great classic accessories such as masks, models, records, and all sorts of goodies that are a must have even though you are going to lose or destroy whatever it is within a couple days of getting it.
