In a spectacular, simian-inspired tribute to the 50th anniversary of the original Planet of the Apes film, our Scary Monsters 106th APE-ocalypse Issue includes "The Apes of Wrath," an in-depth look back at the landmark film series, and "Planet of Primates," which is a "behind the cages" analysis of the science underlying the films.
This 146-pulp-page APE-idemic issue also includes: an exclusive sneak peek and "making of" article on the stunning stop-motion short film Denham's Giant Monster. Actor and film producer Patrick Curtis tells the true tale of trick-or-treating at Bela Lugosi's house in "Count Dracula vs. The 'Little" Wild Bunch." The scary spotlight returns to a long line of Northeast Ohio horror hosts, including Ghoulardi, Big Chuck & Lil John, The Ghoul and Son of Ghoul.
In addition to many other scary articles, this issue will also include our regular features:
- Weird USA: a visit to "UFO central" Roswell, New Mexico
