Pre-Orders are sometimes offered with highly anticipated items not yet available from the manufacturer or distributor. This is a popular option for those who wish to reserve the item right away and avoid a quick sellout. Payment is required at the time of your order. If you add a pre-order to your regular order, your ENTIRE order will not ship until the pre-order is available for shipping. For this reason we recommend that pre-orders are made separately from regular orders to allow the regular order items to be shipped immediately (except for mailed payments by personal check which require a 10-day hold).
PREORDER SHIPS 10/15 Classic Monsters of the Movies issue 17 takes you back to the world of vintage horror cinema with a fresh exploration of beloved monster movies and the stories behind them, presented with the genre-leading image reproduction and commentary that has enthralled readers around the world.
Lon Chaney takes centre stage on the cover, our glorious Daniel Horne oil painting leading you into this issue’s main feature, a re-evaluation of 1925’s The Phantom of the Opera and an examination of how closely the movie adheres to Gaston Leroux’s original tale. Chaney’s iconic make-up has inspired countless nightmares and plenty of imitations, but his living skull creation is one of horror cinema’s all-time classic images. From its oppressive, brooding atmosphere to its chilling scenes of horror and breathtaking emotion, Phantom is a movie no horror fan can fail to relish, and our feature is the perfect invitation to another viewing, offering valuable insights into what went on behind the scenes all those years ago. This movie is celebrated as a classic now, but as you’ll discover, things weren’t always so clear-cut.
