Michael Gingold Forbidden Planet Frightfest Signing Monster Movies book

Forbidden Planet is more than excited to announce the Frightfest Guide to Monster Movies book launch with writer Michael Gingold.

You may know Gingold from one of the many horror publications he has spilled ink for over the past 30 years, so chances are if you’ve ever read a Fangoria or Rue Morgue you are familiar with Michael’s work.

Join us on October 18th from 6 to 8PM, pick up a copy of the newest volume of FAB Press’ Frightfest Guide and get it signed by genre cinema expert Michael Gingold!

In the book, Gingold traces the history of the genre from the silent movies all the way through to the present day. From Universal Studios legends such as Frankenstein’s Monster and the Wolf Man, to the big bugs, atomic mutants and space invaders that terrorized the ’50s, to the kaiju of Japan and the ecological nightmares of the ’70s and ’80s, to the CG creatures and updated favourites of recent years — they’re all here.

Two hundred of the greatest creature features from across the globe are reviewed, with fascinating facts and critical analysis, all illustrated with a ghoulish gallery of remarkable monstrous imagery. Cult-favourite filmmaker Frank Henenlotter, creator of some of the screen’s most idiosyncratic and bizarre beings, contributes a foreword.

A whole world and grisly galaxy of creatures great and small, spawned from space, the supernatural and strange science, the beginning of time, beneath the sea and beyond imagination, await in this book. Dare you confront the beasts within?
