Monster! #27 paperback digest Lovecraftian Horrors Vol. 1 April 2016

The digest-size MONSTER! is chock full of articles and reviews of new and old domestic and international monster movies! Issue #27 is 125 pages.

From the production team:
Okay, just in time for April Fool's Day (not that we're foolin', mind you!), here comes MONSTER! #27 ... which just happens to be the first of our loose H.P. Lovecraft specials (we're doing another one next month, too). In this issue, it's about a 70/30% split, respectively, between HPL-themed material and other stuff.

Steve Bissette (with an invaluable assist from Rick Lai) gives us Part 1 of his massive, laboriously researched two-part analysis of the made-for-TV monster movie DARK INTRUDER (1965), which, while not officially derived from any particular HPL written work, is steeped in Lovecraftian lore and atmosphere nonetheless.

Our review section reflects the issue's main theme, including coverage by both long-time Lovecraft devotees and novices of such cinematic adaptations of his works (both legit or only nominal) as CASTLE FREAK (1995), CHILEAN GOTHIC (a.k.a. PICKMAN'S MODEL, 2000), THE CURSE (1987), CURSE OF THE CRIMSON ALTAR (1968), THE DUNWICH HORROR (1970), THE HAUNTED PALACE (1963), ISLAND OF THE FISHMEN (1979), NECRONOMICON (1993), THE RESURRECTED (1991), and THE SHUTTERED ROOM (1967).

Non-Lovecraft-related material this issue includes the first installment of another epic historical overview from the scholarly Daniel Best on the subject of vintage horror entertainment Down Under, titled "Australian Gothic"; this time Daniel covers the 1929 stage production of Bram Stoker's DRACULA which toured Australia's theatre circuit with considerable success in its day, but has since been as-good-as forgotten by history.

All this and a bunch more goodies besides, including coverage of the PHANTASM movie quadrilogy, a piece about "apocalyptical dino-monsters" in modern popular culture, a review of the newest Karloff biography, Stephen Jacobs" BORIS KARLOFF: MORE THAN A MONSTER, plus, more, more, MORE!

And last but not least, rounding out this super-stuffed 125-pager is our usual listing covering the video availability of titles discussed within.

Color cover, B&W inside. 125 pages. 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. Intended for mature readers, in our opinion.

Shipping Note: This paperback weighs substantially more than a magazine, so depending what if any other items are ordered, we may choose to ship it via Media Mail.
