Quite the treasure trove for fans of Monster cinema. This book is loaded with vintage photos and informative tidbits on the many films themselves, as well as the people who acted in them. A recommended read.

Fantastic book on monsters! Great interviews with leading directors in monster cinema (Sam Raimi, David Cronenberg, John Carpenter and more...). Beautiful pictures from the Kobal Collection, and witty and honest insights from John Landis. A must read!
