I discovered a gruesomely good new monster mag called HorrorShow. This high quality mag with full color photos has nothing more than monsters, horror flicks, special f/x make-up, latex masks, models, and even collector profiles. Issue #3 is dreadfully fun with the focus on everyone’s favorite lagoon dweller, the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
I really enjoyed the article called Return to the Black Lagoon where Ben Chapman revisits the original lagoon on Universal’s backlot. There’s an article about Mark Alfrey, who makes the amazing lifesize Creature statues. Also, you’ll drool all over the pages looking at the photos from Johnny Gilbert’s incredible collection of Creature memorabilia.
So next time you find yourself at a bookstore look to see if they have HorrorShow or you can go to their official site http://www.horrorshowmagazine.com/ and order one.
