Monster Movies by David J. Schow

Trade Paperback – Cimarron Street Books – Aug 2020 – 257 pages

Do monsters have down time?

What happens when the movie is over, the TV is clicked off, and the “normal” world resumes?
What happens when monster movies transcend the 20th Century limitations of celluloid and sprocket holes, or when a night at the movies becomes more real than you ever suspected?
Screens can be two-way streets.
David J. Schow’s Monster Movies — a celebration of staying up past bedtime for Shock Theatre marathons, the gospel of horror hosts and the curriculum vitae of monster magazines, the sculpting of raw light through film stock, and the afterlife of Gothic shamblers, shrinking men, and Creatures from certain Lagoons. But what you find at the crossroads of reel and reality isn’t always rosy nostalgia . . . sometimes, it can eat you alive.
Includes the Dimension Award-winning story “Coming Soon to a Theatre Near You.”
Introduction by Greg Nicotero, Executive Producer of Creepshow and The Walking Dead.
