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.
