From Vampira to Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, female horror movie hosts have long been a staple of late-night television. Broadcast on local stations and cable access channels, characters such as Moona Lisa, Stella, Crematia Mortem and Tarantula Ghoul brought an entertaining blend of macabre camp and after-prime-time sexuality to American living rooms in the 1950s through 1990s. Despite a near total lack of local programming today, the tradition continues on the Internet and Roku and other modern media. Featuring exclusive interviews and rare photographs, this book covers dozens of “dream ghouls” with alphabetical entries, from Aunt Gertie to Veronique Von Venom.

Interviews Too Shocking to Print! collects conversations with some of horror and science fiction cinema's finest directors and writers, along with other outstanding talents. The interviewees' films range from the mightiest blockbusters to esoteric drive-in arcana, but they are united by the imagination. Their creations represent some of the freshest, most popular, vital, and inventive works in fantastic filmmaking. The interviewees: - Alan Ball- The author of American Beauty, whose True Blood has become a favorite of vampire lovers everywhere. - Wah Chang- The sculptor and multi-talented f/x genius who created the monstrous menageries of “Star Trek,” “The Outer Limits,” and George Pal’s films, among many others. - William Finley- The gangly, unforgettable cult star who essayed the title role in Brian De Palma’s Phantom of the Paradise and headlined Sisters, Eaten Alive, and other cult classics. - Jack Fisk- Now one of Hollywood’s top production designers (There Will Be Blood), Fisk cut his teeth crafting the eerily unforgettable worlds of Phantom of the Paradise, Messiah of Evil, and Carrie. - Gene Fowler, Jr.- Fritz Lang’s former editor, Fowler directed two minor masterpieces whose lurid titles barely hint at their high quality: I Was a Teenage Werewolf and I Married a Monster From Outer Space. - Chuck Griffith- A bizarre master screenwriter, Griffith wrote immortal low-budget favorites like The Little Shop of Horrors, A Bucket of Blood, Not of This Earth, and Death Race 2000. - Stewart Stern- The author of Rebel Without a Cause recalls writing the role of Mr. Kurtz for Boris Karloff in his television production of Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness. - Herbert Strock- Strock discusses the making of his psychotronic gems I Was a Teenage Frankenstein, How to Make a Monster, and The Crawling Hand. - William Tuttle- The head of MGM’s makeup department for decades and the first makeup artist to win an Academy Award, Tuttle’s make-up career stretched from Mark of the Vampire with Bela Lugosi and The Wizard of Oz to Young Frankenstein’s zipper-neck monster. - Robert Wise- The director of two of the all-time most popular musicals– West Side Story and The Sound of Music– discusses his long and varied career, including editing Citizen Kane and directing the distinctly un-musical The Body Snatcher, The Haunting, Curse of the Cat People, and The Andromeda Strain. Also included are several of Humphreys’s essays on the cinema of imagination.

He was the final addition to Universal's "royal family" of movie monsters: the Creature from the Black Lagoon. With his scaly armor, razor claws and a face only a mother octopus could love, this Amazon denizen was perhaps the most fearsome beast in the history of Hollywood's Studio of Horrors. But he also possessed a sympathetic quality which elevated him fathoms above the many aquatic monsters who swam in his wake. Everything you ever wanted to know about the Gill Man and his mid-1950s film career (Creature from the Black Lagoon, Revenge of the Creature, The Creature Walks Among Us) is collected in this book, packed to the gills with hour-by-hour production histories, cast bios, analyses, explorations of the music, script-to-screen comparisons, in-depth interviews and an ocean of fin-tastic photos.

Throughout the course of film history, artists have used matte painting, stop-motion animation, model photography, process cinematography, in-camera effects, travelling mattes, optical printing, physical and floor effects to entertain audiences. These are the special effects artists in this book. The biographical entries provide career synopses and movie credits, spanning the early years of cinematography through the end of the mechanical age of filmmaking, marked by Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park and its combination of conventional effects and computer-generated images. An extensive filmography is then presented. The book contains numerous stills, a glossary, bibliography and index.

Known to give up precious living space to display a full-size creature from the Black Lagoon or a pair of Frankenstein's clod-hoppers, Bob Burns is the patron saint of special effects for B movies. His storied basement houses the largest private collection of props, models, sketches, storyboards, and other bits of nostalgic debris from a century's worth of films. It Came from Bob's Basement is a colorful journey through the vivid and campy world of fantastic cinema and a true tribute to a man who has dedicated his life to the preservation of incredible movie artifactsfrom the original King Kong's metallic skeleton to the life-size Alien Queen. Including insider stories from the sets of favorites like The She Creature, It Conquered the World, and Plan Nine from Outer Space, Bob Burns brings fellow fantasy buffs up close with props and artwork from the greatest (and most outrageous) sci-fi films of all time. A story told with genuinely irresistible enthusiasm, Bob's Basement honors the beloved cult classics that have shaped movie history.
