This is a great little book from the man who also created Clifford the Big Red Dog. It offers very real and very helpful advice on how to care for mummies, vampires, "frankensteins" and werewolves...for instance, when caring for a werewolf, if he appears sluggish and sick to his stomach, Bridwell suggests it might be something he ate and recommends counting your friends. My copy came from my mom, but you can still find it online, particularly though amazon, who appears to have several copies. If you are considering investing in a monster as a companion, invest in this handy little tome and learn how to take care of the unique requirements of monsters.

But out of his limited budgets and lurid studio-provided titles, he crafted masterpieces of horror and suspense. His atmospheric films are often neglected and rarely talked about and this boxed set includes the best for an incredibly reasonable price. These are truly artistic thrillers all together in one collection for less than $30 bucks. Don't let the silly titles fool you...these are serious films about the dark half of mankind. To quote an editorial review of the collection, James Agee, the premier American film critic of the 1940s, reckoned that Val Lewton was one of the three foremost creative figures in Hollywood--an assessment yet more impressive when we consider that the other two were Charles Chaplin and Walt Disney. Includes: Cat People / The Curse of the Cat People / I Walked with a Zombie / The Body Snatcher / Isle of the Dead / Bedlam / The Leopard Man / The Ghost Ship / The Seventh Victim / Shadows in the Dark

I bought it under the auspices that it was for our daughter but really it was for me. The scratchy inked lines with impressionistic washes of color are gorgeous but the greatest thing about Mr. Grimly's style is the unique ways he allows his free-flowing lines and splatters to abstract the figures...it is a style perfect for the subject matter - namely two monsters who live in Booville and can't stand each other because one is tidy and one is messy. The felix and oscar relationship, no surprise, blossams into love and friendship by the end but along the way, we are treated to all kinds of disgusting verse and fantastically rendered monsters and creatures. It is a great book, a great book for kids with nothing offensive or questionable (i feel)...but then again, I bought it mainly because I wanted to look at the illustrations while I read to our daughter...

  • I happen to be a massive Gabriel Byrne fan, thus I watched this. I happen to also be a complete wimp when it comes to horror films, thus I shouldn't have.

Amazon.com When a recent widower (the wonderfully overemphatic George C. Scott ) moves into an antique Washington mansion, his realization that he may not be the only resident leads him toward a deadly secret that refuses to remain buried....The best haunted-house film since the legendary Haunting, this potent, classy combination of the mystery and horror genres eschews explicit gore and dumb shocks in exchange for a subtle creepiness that occasionally builds to a terrifying peak (watch out for that seance scene!). The result is a satisfyingly intelligent horror film with an intriguing dash of Watergate-era paranoia. Director Peter Medak went on to direct the considerably more gratuitous and somewhat less effective Romeo Is Bleeding and The Krays.

It's got moments... Amazon.com Director John Carpenter and special makeup effects master Rob Bottin teamed up for this 1982 remake of the 1951 science fiction classic The Thing from Another World, and the result is a mixed blessing. It's got moments of highly effective terror and spine-tingling suspense, but it's mostly a showcase for some of the goriest and most horrifically grotesque makeup effects ever created for a movie. With such highlights as a dog that splits open and blossoms into something indescribably gruesome, this is the kind of movie for die-hard horror fans and anyone who slows down to stare at fatal traffic accidents. On those terms, however, it's hard not to be impressed by the movie's wild and wacky freak show. It all begins when scientists at an arctic research station discover an alien spacecraft under the thick ice, and thaw out the alien body found aboard. What they don't know is that the alien can assume any human form, and before long the scientists can't tell who's real and who's a deadly alien threat. Kurt Russell leads the battle against the terrifying intruder, and the supporting cast includes Richard Masur, Richard Dysart, Donald Moffat, and Wilford Brimley. They're all playing standard characters who are neglected by the mechanistic screenplay (based on the classic sci-fi story "Who Goes There?" by John W. Campbell), but Carpenter's emphasis is clearly on the gross-out effects and escalating tension. If you've got the stomach for it (and let's face it, there's a big audience for eerie gore), this is a thrill ride you won't want to miss. --Jeff Shannon

Amazon.com Based on a story by Clive Barker and skillfully written and directed by Bernard Rose, Candyman rises above most horror films by eerily suggesting that some urban legends--in this case a particularly frightening one--have a spooky basis in reality. The legend of the Candyman is a potent one around the high-rise tenements of Chicago's Cabrini-Green housing complex, where the residents speak of a dark, ominous figure who appears when his victims say his name five times in front of a mirror, then mercilessly slashes them to death. Upon learning that the Candyman is rumored to live in one of the vacant tenements, a University of Illinois researcher (Virginia Madsen) investigates a recent murder at Cabrini-Green. She learns that the Candyman (played by Tony Todd) is both unreal and chillingly real--a supernatural force of evil empowered by those who believe in his legend. He is a killer made flesh by the belief of others, and the young researcher's investigation is a threat to his existence. What happens next? We wouldn't dare spoil the chills, but rest assured that writer-director Rose has tapped into a wellspring of urban angst and fear, and Candyman serves up its gruesome frights with a refreshing dose of intelligence. --Jeff Shannon Product Description A children's ghost story comes to terrifying life in this gut-wrenching thriller about a graduate student whose research into modern folklore summons the spirit of the dead. Helen Lyle (Virginia Madsen) laughs when she interviews college freshmen about their superstitions. But when she hears about Candyman a slave spirit with a hook hand who is said to haunt Chicago's notorious Cabrini-Green housing project she thinks she has a new twist for this thesis. Braving the gang-ridden territory to visit the site of a brutal murder Helen arrogantly assumes Candyman can't really exist... until he appears igniting a string of terrifying tragic slayings. But the police don't believe in monsters and they charge Helen with the grisly crimes. Only one person can set her free: CANDYMAN.

Another successful attempt by Stephen King to rob you of your sanity when the lights go out... Amazon.com Desperate for work, troubled high school teacher Jim Norman (Tim Matheson) relocates his family to his rural hometown after procuring a much-needed job there. Once home he must relive and confront a childhood nightmare: the high school hoodlums who murdered his older brother in a tunnel ambush, and were killed themselves by an oncoming train, are slowly rising from the grave to finish the job by killing Norman. The ghostly hooligans, who appear as flesh and blood to students, start "transferring" into school when some of Norman's students mysteriously perish; however their phantom, fire-spitting car is invisible to all but their victims. Suspicion for the inexplicably rising student-body count soon falls squarely on Norman, who must find a way to protect his wife and son from danger, vanquish the supernatural hoods, and cast off the shackles of his past. It's a fairly straightforward plot with some obvious elements, but Matheson and his supporting cast (including wife Brooke Adams) create a suspenseful, fear-inducing atmosphere under the able direction of Tom McLoughlin from a screenplay adaptation by Lawrence Konner and Mark Rosenthal. --Bryan Reesman

As in, to this day I can't walk the 1/4 mile from my cottage in Ireland to the neighbor's at night. I honestly can't. Logically, I know that werewolves don't exist. But that doesn't seem to matter in the moment. Sigh. It effed me up. Big time. Now, that wouldn't have happened if I had been able to sit through more than 20 minutes of it when I first saw it at age ten. I would have discovered it was fairly campy and unrealistic in its close-ups of the werewolf. But I didn't find that out until college, when the damage was already done. Nope, that first 20 minutes messed me up and it messed me up big-time. It was the scene with the guy from the old Dr. Pepper commercials- David Naughton- and his friend. Silly boys. They had to go and venture off the moonlit path. And I, an innocent child, paid the price when one of 'em got ripped apart. Oh well. Enjoy.

And if you're a fan of these like I am then you have probably seen Basil Gogos' art. He has painted some of the most iconic portraits of classic monsters including Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney and Bela Lugosi as the Mummy, Wolfman, Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Phantom. His oddly bright and expressionistic color palette allowed him to render some of the most effective portraits of horror film denezins ever. This is the first monograph of his work and belongs in every horror or classic monster fan's library.
