Toll gemacht! Hier strahlt der Monsterfreund! Viele Fotos, tolles Layout. Aber was hätte man von John Landis auch anderes erwartet.

An Enjoyable Look at Cinema Monsters! 22. September 2011
Von Jean Valjean - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
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."

Come for the pictures, stay for the text! 20. September 2011
Von S. Banks - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
An incredibly lavish collection of hundreds of amazing pictures of all your favorite movie monsters ... many I have never seen before. You will spend some serious time looking at this. But, don't just look. Read. The interviews with Joe Dante, Sam Raimi, John Carpenter, Ray Harryhausen, Guillermo Del Toro, Rick Baker and David Cronenberg (and the captions of the photos) by the highly-opinionated and highly-entertaining and well-informed Landis are just great.

A beautiful shout to the horrible. 4. Oktober 2011
Von Tom Dupree - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
It's like thumbing through the best issue of FAMOUS MONSTERS you ever held in your hand -- and then you get to go back and *read it*! I only saw one egregious error my first time thru: on page 81, they mistakenly credit a shot from the original 1958 THE FLY [that movie was in color, as many traumatized kids can attest] to RETURN OF THE FLY, the cheapo b&w sequel that featured the HUGE fly-head. Oops. But since they printed the shot from the color movie in b&w [why?], maybe nerddom can forgive. Landis is so well connected that your bonus, besides the usual brilliant D-K page designs, is a series of ruminations from the best directors in the genre. Even the cover is scary.

Impossible to Put Down Once You've Opened it! 23. April 2012
Von Happy Reader - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a wonderful coffee table book! No one has yet resisted the temptation to open my copy, and once they start paging through it, they can't stop! I'll quote John Landis from his Foreward: "There are many books about the movies, and like the movies, most of them are not that good. So I feel the need to clarify that this has been a labor of love and not a class assignment. This book is meant to be fun. It is not some heavy tome on the meaning of violence in the cinema, or a ponderous examination of film theory. This is a book with a lot of photographs of monsters in the movies."

Landis fulfilled his promise - this is a FUN book. He also goes on to say, "As for any monsters that are omitted, my only excuse is the finite number of photos my publisher would allow."

That may be true, but every "monster" I thought of, from a favorite movie, is in here! And lest you think this is a book only for hard-core horror film lovers, which I'm not, I'll list some of my favorites: "Edward Scissorhands" - yes, under "Mad Scientists"!. "Dracula: Dead and Loving It" - yes! "The Ghost Breakers" with Bob Hope - yes! "I Am Legend" with Will Smith and Guillermo del Toro's "Pan's Labyrinth" - YES! YES!

And it also has the films that aren't my style, such as "Basket Case", "Texas Chain Saw Massacre" (in the chapter "Human Monsters") and "Child's Play". This book was published in 2011, and it includes movies up to 2010.

Most of the book is taken up with the fabulous photos, each accompanied by Landis' brief caption. But interspersed throughout the book are interesting interviews:
- Christopher Lee
- Joe Dante
- David Cronenberg
- Sam Raimi
- Guillermo del Toro
- Ray Harryhausen, whom Landis knew
- Rick Baker
- John Carpenter
And, lest we forget, we have the thoughts of John Landis, himself, director of movies such as "An American Werewolf in London".

There are two indexes in the back. The first lists movies by title. The second lists names of people, actors, directors, special effects, etc. Movies are represented in a variety of ways. There are posters, publicity shots, and movie stills.

Movie monsters are divided into 15 categories:
1. Vampires
2. Werewolves
3. Mad Scientists
4. Zombies
5. Ghosts
6. Mummies
7. Myths, Legends & Fairy Tales
8. Dragons & Dinosaurs
9. Monstrous Apes
10. Nature's Revenge
11. Atomic Mutations
12. The Devil's Work
13. Space Monsters
14. Monstrous Machines
15. Human Monsters
16. The Monster Makers. This final chapter is about the behind the scenes monster makers. It includes directors, make-up artists, monster designers, stop-motion experts and matte painting artists. [I have a whole separate book on the dying art of movie matte painting on glass, the terrific The Invisible Art. Now, matte painting is done on the computer, digital matte painting.]

This book is so much fun! I cannot recommend it enough.

Happy Reader

Just about the best I've seen . 29. November 2011

I am 47 years old & have been a horror movie fan all my life . I own several table top type books about horror movies through the ages and I have to say that this is easily the most beautifully done one to date . John Landis must really care about the genre , because it really comes through in this book . Very highly recommended !
