Out of the Vault


Daniel Horne’s fabulous painting — previously featured, sans overprinting, here — fronts the current issue of Monsters from the Vault, celebrating the 75th Anniversary (in 2010) of James Whale’s Bride of Frankenstein.

The main article presents reflections on and tributes to the enduring classic by horror film experts and historians the likes of Bryan Senn, Greg Mank, Mark Clark, Steve Thornton, David Colton, Gary D. Rhodes and editor/publisher Jim Clatterbaugh. All beautifully written and illuminating. What’s more, the article is illustrated with numerous photographs stunningly reproduced in black, white and silvery grays.

To be honest, the stratospheric quality of the writing, the iconography and the layouts is on par for the title. Monsters from the Vault is, dependably and consistently, the very finest magazine devoted to classic horror films.

I urge you to purchase your copy directly from the publisher.
