Wow. Just, wow.

John Landis has crafted a spectacular collection of images from just about every monster movie you could care to name. The text in the book is light and casual, there is no attempt to create a comprehensive encyclopedia or academic work. It is, quite literally, a movie fan's scrap book! There are some fascinating interviews with the likes of Rick Baker and Christopher Lee (as well as many others) but overall this is a beautiful volume to just dip into randomly and enjoy the marvelous collection on show. More like a light hearted stroll through a monster fan gallery than any type of study - thoroughly enjoyable, entertaining, and even a bit nostalgic! Oh, and Landis isn't shy of offering his honest opinions on the less-good movies!
