Are you a fan of monster movies? Of course, you are. With that in mind, we want to let you know Michael Gingold's new book about the history of, you guessed it, monsters in movies goes on sale tomorrow.

The new book is called THE FRIGHTFEST GUIDE TO MONSTER MOVIES and the hardback version, launched at this year’s Horror Channel FrightFest event, can be exclusively purchased from the FAB Press website: www.fabpress.com

Celebrated writer, editor, and critic Michael 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 favorites 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?

THE FRIGHTFEST GUIDE TO MONSTER MOVIES is unleashed in the US on October 18, 2017. A softcover version is available on Amazon and all other outlets.
