Starting in the silent era, it traces the history of the genre all the way through to the present day. The films are given detailed individual reviews, with fascinating facts and critical analysis.
There are the Universal Studios favourites such as Frankenstein's Monster and the Mummy, the big bugs, atomic mutants and space invaders that terrorised the '50s. Then there's the kaiju of Japan, the full-colour fiends from Hammer and the ecological nightmares of the '70s and '80s, to the CG creatures and updated favourites of more recent years.
Cult-favourite filmmaker Frank Henenlotter, creator of some of the screen's most idiosyncratic and bizarre beings, contributes a foreword, and it's all illustrated with a ghoulish gallery of scary stills and petrifying posters representing the remarkable range of monstrous movies. Do you dare open the cover and confront the beasts within?
