CLASSIC MONSTERS OF THE MOVIES MAGAZINE ISSUE #11 – THE GREATEST MONSTER MAGAZINE SINCE YOU WERE A KID!
Leading the way in Classic Monsters of the Movies issue #11 is 1920’s Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, a magnificent retelling of the classic story and a showcase of John Barrymore’s formidable acting skills. Whether as virtuous Jekyll or the terrifyingly animalistic Hyde, he dominates the screen, and our beautiful cover painting by Daniel Horne is the perfect way to get into the mood of this beloved thriller.
Elsewhere in the issue, you’ll discover plenty more from the world of vintage horror movies. In our Thicker Than Water feature we explore the thoroughly unpleasant family trees of our favourite monsters, looking at the ways in which the horror genre’s various bloodlines intersect and the damage that family ties can do.
You’ll also find a biography of Dwight Frye, the Man with the Thousand Watt Stare, and discover the tragedy of his unfulfilled potential. Coupled with the concluding part of our examination of 1968 folk horror classic Witchfinder General, and rundowns of The City of the Dead and The Earth Dies Screaming, issue #11 is an essential for your collection.
Issue #11 of Classic Monsters of the Movies includes:
Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde – an undoubted classic of silent horror, Paramount’s rendition of Robert Louis Stevenson’s story is an unforgettable film experience, but John Barrymore’s performance as the spiderlike Hyde is only one facet of the movie’s complex development.
Thicker Than Water – family relations are often complicated, but in the monster world they often have pretty grim consequences too. From Universal’s messy Frankenstein family to Hammer’s misguided Twins of Evil, there are plenty of dysfunctional monster families…
Witchfinder General, Part 2 – learn the inside story on just how director Michael Reeves brought this much-loved motion picture to the screen, and rediscover the magic of Vincent Price’s blissfully sadistic performance.
The City of the Dead – surprising and scary, this movie has the Vulcan name on the credits but was brought to life by the founders of Amicus. Christopher Lee is as splendid as ever in a mist-drenched nightmare of a movie that’s not to be missed.
And so much more!
