From B-movie bogeymen and outer space oddities to big-budget terrors, Monsters in the Movies by legendary filmmaker John Landis showcases the greatest monsters ever to creep, fly, slither, stalk, or rampage across the Silver Screen!

Landis provides his own fascinating and entertaining insights into the world of moviemaking, while conducting in-depth "conversations" with leading monster makers, including David Cronenberg, Christopher Lee, John Carpenter, and Sam Raimi — to discuss some of the most petrifying monsters ever seen. He also surveys the historical origins of the archetypal monsters, such as vampires, zombies, and werewolves, and takes you behind the scenes to discover the secrets of those special-effects wizards who created such legendary frighteners as King Kong, Dracula, and Halloween's Michael Myers. With more than 1000 stunning movie stills and posters, this book is sure to keep even the most intense fright-seekers at the edge of their seats for hours!

Hammer’s first Technicolor horror film introduced the world to a new, dynamic, sexy, and powerful Count Dracula: Christopher Lee. Dracula also brought Lee’s Dracula a worthy foe in Peter Cushing’s driven Van Helsing. Both Lee and Cushing would go on to play these roles for decades although, unlike Lugosi, their wide range of character roles continued (and for Christopher Lee, continues) for the rest of their careers.

This is a book with a lot of photographs of monsters in the movies. I know I did. Foreword. Michael Jackson’s Thriller. The films represented here are included not because they are necessarily good or bad films, but only because of the monsters that appear in them. Even though this eBook is mostly photographic essays, included are some conversations with a few of my friends that will be of interest. Michael as a zombie in this all-talking, all-singing, all-dancing horror film.

Talk about Monsters in the Movies

About 90% of the book is pictures of scenes in movies or movie posters with small anecdotes underneath. The other 10% is composed of 1-2 pages of text regarding the subject matter of each chapter and some 2 page interviews with the likes of Ray Harryhausen, John Carpenter, Stan Winston, David Cronenberg, Guillermo Del Toro and others. The meat of the book is the interviews, which unfortunately there are not enough of. It's a nice book to serve as an introduction to the genre and for reference to movies that are not necessarily the standard fare, however Landis' "analysis" is very generic and lacks the thought provocation of his movies.

Review is for the kindle version, and is more of a warning than a review. The art and photography is possibly the biggest selling point for this book, and the product description states that its optimized for large tablets, but it didn't look like that to me. The pictures are tiny postage stamp things, and you can click on them for a slightly larger version, but the overall effect is pretty unimpressive. If I had it to do over again, I'd just pay another 10-20 dollars and get the print version. Landis's knowledge and enthusiasm for the genre do come through here, but this review is really about the print vs kindle version.

Excellent collection and written history of the monsters of the screen that many of us grew up with. Beautifully designed picture layouts with many full color photographs. Well written by John Landis, who from all information, seems to have grown up as many of us "boomers" did watching and worshipping Frankenstein, Dracula and The Wolfman, not to mention all the other classic creatures from late night fright TV, plus those in modern screen history. A great read and a great source of information behind the scenes of the classics of horror movies. Well worth the price of admission!

I bought this as a gift for my father-in-law. He is a huge horror movie fan, and it's something we've bonded on. This was an easy choice as a gift. I had the opportunity to look through it after I gave it to him. Side note: he absolutely LOVED it. The information inside is quite informative, and it was super cool to see the history behind a lot of well known monsters. If you or someone you know is interested in what happens behind the scenes than this is the book for you!

I have no complaints about this book! It's beyond the best horror book I've ever owned! John Landis did an AMAZING job making this beautiful creation and I hope he makes more! I love how it's so glossy and detailed. Every page is colorful and descriptive. What more do you need? It's all here! 320 pages of pure entertainment and it'll keep you busy for hours! Definitely worth every penny! And I'm the BIGGEST horror monster fan you'll ever know! This book impresses me!

After seeing this book in stores a year ago, and not wanting to pay the high price, I ordered through amazon and couldn't be more pleased with the purchase.
This is basically a large picture book of movie monsters dating from the 20's through modern times. The book is by John Landis and is his version of monster history. (both good and bad)
There are some short interviews (insights) with some of his Hollywood friends, makeup artists, and directors that could have been a little longer.
A great book for those of us who love horror movies and the creatures they spawn.

This is an amazing book to have if you're a fan of monsters and horror movies. It has a lot of interviews with famous directors and make up artists and tons of pictures broken down into different categories.
I enjoyed this book. It represents a fast and pleasurable romp through the history of movie monsters from the silent era to today. John Landis, as almost everyone knows, directed some of the most well known and culturally influential movies, including An American Werewolf in London and The Blues Brothers. Landis's love for Dark Fantasy films really shines here and hooks the reader. The pictures are very attractive and the interviews with well known personalities involved with monster movies were educational. Landis is a very opinionated writer which I find to be refreshing. In his interviews, he is able to draw out blunt observations from those he talked with.

The monster movies are grouped into broad categories throughout the book. They are: Vampires, Werewolves, Mad Scientists, Zombies, Ghosts, Mummies, Myths/Legends/Fairy Tales, Dragons/Dinosaurs, Monstrous Apes, Nature's Revenge, Atomic Mutations, The Devil's Work, Space Monsters, Monstrous Machines, Human Monsters, and The Monster Makers. At the beginning of each section, Landis would provide a two page overview about the subject or topic. His writings are clear, succinct, and knowledgeable, with the right touch of humor.

This is a book that any fans of Dark Fantasy movies will want to obtain and read (and re-read) during any "dark and gloomy nights."
